Journey of My Heart Filming Locations
Although Journey of My Heart’ is set in Alaska, it is not the filming site of the romantic comedy. Interestingly, the production team moved to the Great White North to create the breathtaking backdrop of Abby and Eric’s love story. Let’s take a look at the exact filming locations!
Vancouver, British Columbia
Originally titled ‘Love on the Wings of Eagles,’ the film was shot in Vancouver. Located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, the seaport city is a favorable filming destination owing to the generous tax credits, availability of expert technical crews and talented actors, spectacular natural backdrops, favorable climate, and first-rate production facilities. Therefore, it isn’t surprising that it has served as the shooting site of numerous films and TV shows, including many Hallmark productions.
Thanking the cast and crew members for their contribution to the film, Guest wrote, “An incredible shoot, amazing team, love this crew, talented cast, dreamy locations. Thankful for the opportunity to direct this gem.” Other cast members like Darien Martin took to humor and posted how he didn’t realize it would be difficult swimming in full clothes and boots.
Furthermore, Martin expressed how thankful and lucky he felt for getting this as his first leading role. However, he was not the only one feeling elated. His co-star Paul Grenier shared he learned about eagle feathers and that he was grateful for working in the film. A picturesque place and some happy people, now that’s a perfect day at work.
