BRRRRRR

It's cold in Iceland.

(Or so I hear. Never been there myself. Really need to rectify that).

Or so we're told, in the latest season 3 video from HBO:



Sad to say, I wasn't able to visit the shoot in Iceland for either season two or season three, but if we get a season four, maybe I can get over there this year.

I also want to stay at the Ice Hotel in Sweden. I must have Stark blood.

What part of Iceland are they filming in?
The proximity to the other European filming sites might make a big difference, but places in the Canadian prairies or Northern Manitoba or Northern Ontario could have done just as well, and been closer to civilization. It gets cold here, and we get lots of snow. You can find flat plains with no trees, shrub brush, tundra, rivers and mountains.

I am sure Iceland is beautiful and has unique aspects, but I don't buy the "there is nothing like it"

In the town I used to live in, it is 30 degrees colder than in Reykjavik right now.

the record low is -45.7, where the record low is 39.7 for northern Ireland.

I think the coldest it was when I lived there was -35 with a windchill of nearly minus 50.

This is of course all in Celsius... you know, the temperature system that makes sense.

METRIC RULES. The maesters would agree.

Iceland is the only place the mid-Atlantic Ridge comes above sea level. It is entirely steam-heated.
I won't argue scenery one way or another, although there's a heck of a lot, but the fundamental landscape is unique.

I've been to Canada. I've lived in Iceland.

Canada is no Iceland.
