HBO’s Game of Thrones has officially returned to Iceland for the filming of season 7, to shoot icy-landscaped scenes set in the frozen north of Westeros.  Already, several of the show’s crew members arrived in the country this week. Right now they are preparing for filming to officially start either Friday or Monday of next week.

 

And the show’s leading man Kit Harington (Jon Snow) is now “in the middle of Iceland.”

These scenes will be very pivotal in the show’s final episodes in the next season.  Scenes were previously filmed on an icy set at Wolf Hill Quarry outside  Belfast, but it’s likely that set was supplementing Iceland’s beautiful and very real vistas for the journey. The sequence will involve action, danger, and more Wights than you have ever seen.

 

We can assure you, that you have never seen scenes like these in this epic series, scenes that will never be replicated in any other show.
