The scenes on Hoth at beginning of the Empire Strikes Back were filmed in Norway. The conditions were so severe the crew were snowed into their hotel and could barely get out.

It was so cold when they filmed some of the scenes on Hoth that they shot it right out though the door of the hotel the crew was staying at.
Mark would run out of the door of the hotel and act out being chased by a Wampa, while the crew filmed though the doorway and after the director shouted "Cut!"; Mark would run back into the hotel to defrost.

For the Taun-Taun and AT-AT walker scenes "stop-motion" technique was used.

The Wampa was filmed in a studio, to the delight of many a crew member who had frozen their butts off in Norway.
