The cast and the crew of “The Game of Thrones” will return to Iceland in January to film scenes for the seventh season. According to local news site Vísir.is the producers of the wildly popular TV series have been meeting with local film service company in preparation for the visit.

The Game of Thrones (GoT) has previously been partially filmed in Iceland. Scenes for GoT Season four were filmed in locations such as Þingvellir National Park in South Iceland, Lake Mývatn in North Iceland and near Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area in South Iceland. Þingvellir was featured in the season's very first episode. 

Scenes for GoT Season 3 were filmed during the winter in Iceland in 2011 and scenes for Season 4 were filmed in July 2013.

As all GoT fans the winter has arrived to Westeroos, meaning that snow and ice will feature heavily in Season 7. And that is something we have in abundance in Iceland during January!
