Last week we reported that foreign travellers visiting Iceland had run into members of the HBO series The Game of Thrones on location in Iceland. Members of the cast were spotted at Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon filming scenes for the upcoming 7th season of the popular series. Key characters were spotted, including Ian Glen, who plays Jorah Mormont, Joe Dempsie, who plarys Gendry and Paul Keye who plays Thoros of Myr as well as Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow.

Now we can add Liam Cunningham who plays Davos Seaworth and Rory McCann who plays the Hound, who were spotted in the lobby of a Reykjavík hotel. Instagram user 666fallen_devil posted selfies with Davos Seaworth and Gendry (see below), while a Facebook user Billy Jolie, who spotted the Hound at Marina Hotel in downtown Reykjavík didn't dare take a selfie: "He said "Well spotted!" but didn't seem like the type to do selfies with."

But then there are the photos of the crew on location on a black sand beach near the village of Vík in South Iceland. Instagram user varulf.berserk posted the following photo:


The scene involves two boats, which are presumably coming ashore. Cast members spotted at the scene include Davos Seaworth, Gendry and the Hound. Kristofer Hivju who plays Tormund Giantsbane also shows up on Instagram in the following selfie taken in Iceland:


If Tormund had a car- this would be the one!

The vehicle in the background is an amphibious cargo vehicle, used to move equipment and passengers on the black sand beach. All of this points to a major amphibious scene north of the Wall. The blog reports that a rumor has it that a group of characters are travelling north of the Wall in Season 7, and that the scenes already shot at Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon are part of these scenes.

Another Game of Thrones blog, speculates that the scene is most likely of the characters landing at Eastwatch-by-th-Sea, a seaside castle belonging to the Night's Watch.
