In season seven, winter truly arrived, and the bleak, otherworldly landscapes of Iceland featured extensively. Since season one, Iceland served as the windswept land north of The Wall, and the White Walkers finally made their move.
Previous shoots gravitated around Lake Mývatn and the austere lava fields of Dimmuborgir in the north. The shores of Lake Mývatn have always been a popular camping spot for Wildings and the nearby cave at Grjotagja was where Jon and Ygrette escaped from it all.
The Höfðabrekkuheiði hiking area near Vik, on the island’s south coast, and the Svínafellsjökull glacier, near Skaftafell, are both used for locations beyond the Wall, and you’ll find the pass to the impregnable Eyrie (and Iceland’s National Parliament) in Thingvellir National Park.

Spain has long been a favourite with Game Of Thrones location scouts, and season seven saw the introduction of a whole load of new locations in the country. That rocky beach where Daenerys Targaryen sets foot on Dragonstone in the first episode? That’s Itzurun, near the seaside town of Zumaia, in Guipúzcoa province.
Reports in Spanish newspapers suggest that the otherworldly beaches near Barrika, the islet of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe and the port of Bermeo featured too. Seville’s Royal Dockyards and Alcazar (pictured) also featured, as characters on the show ventured forth into Sunspear, the Dorne capital.
Fans of the Dothraki should head to the badlands near Bardenas Reales, in southeast Navarre, (the Dothraki Sea of season six) and Almeria in the south, a.k.a. Vaes Dothrak. And don't miss Girona in Catalonia, which served as Braavos and Old Town.
