We had reported few months back that Game of Thrones was returning to Iceland to film season 7 but there was no information regarding the places that would be used for filming. In the past, the country has been used to film the scenes beyond the Wall and also some of the scenes between the Hound and Arya Stark. However, Watchers on the Wall have reported that there is a set-like setup taking place in Stangarvegur, in the Gjáin valley.
The set is known to be a hydroelectric dam but the site is said to be closed for construction for a another two years. However this was the place where there was active construction taking place. It is said that a “local shopkeeper” said that this set was being made for the filming of Game of Thrones season 7.
The pictures reveal the construction site which looks very much like an alley made of ice and the walls surrounding it. It seems pretty legit to believe the “shopkeeper” for now, until HBO or an official source confirms it.

We will share more information about filming in Iceland as and when we get any information.

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and husband Joe Jonas are trying hard to give their new-born daughter a normal life.
The young couple went out for a walk with their daughter Willa in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Turner was seen in a T-shirt and black leggings, while Jonas was rocking the buzzcut he dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month while. They were pushing Willa in a black baby carriage.
Both the high-profile parents were keeping it low-key and were wearing properly secured black face masks. Since becoming parents in July 2020, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been focusing more on their baby and less on sharing details of their private life.
Sophie earlier made headlines with an Instagram post, when she brought a prop from Game of Thrones set back home. She welcomed the wooden Throne of Winterfell at her home, which had an intricately carved dire-wolf on it.
