Game Of Thrones Returning To Iceland

Game Of Thrones Returning To Iceland

Published April 4, 2013

A production team for the hit HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ is in Iceland scouting locations for filming the show’s fourth season, RÚV reports.
While previous scenes for the series that have been shot in Iceland have taken advantage of the country’s snowy landscape and white-out conditions, the crew is said to be returning to film this summer to capture the light of Iceland’s summer nights.
Anybody who tuned in for the ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 premiere this past week would have seen ample shots of rugged and snowy Icelandic mountains, accented oh so nicely by the equally rugged good looks of Kit Harington, who plays the character Jon Snow.
