Many of the scenes in Game of Thrones are shot here in Iceland. I had a part in developing a tour that takes you to some of those sites. Also being a small part of this most popular television show in the world, was a
great privilege that gave me the insight into the production and making of this epic fantasy, that I could not have had otherwise.
We still don’t
know much about Game of Thrones Season 7, but we do know that it will film later in the year than usual, and therefore air later
than usual. Why? It’s the weather. As Sansa informed Jon in the Season 6 finale, winter has finally, finally come to the Seven Kingdoms, and that means that things are gonna get snowy and cold. Showrunners David Benioff and
Dan Weiss plan to wait for the weather to turn before hopping back in the saddle and filming more episodes.
When exactly will they start? That’s a harder question to answer, but Icelandic news site Vísir.is is reporting that HBO employees met with a local film production company in preparation for filming
scenes in January of 2017.
