Harington reveals this in an interview with Italian Vogue. 

“The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love."

The couple were first seen in public together at the recent Oliver awards. 

The popular TV series chose Iceland as the location to film scenes that represent the wild region of North of the Seven Kingdoms.
