The Game of Thrones television show is a brilliant work of fantasy to many, but its Icelandic filming locations are far from fiction!
Join this tour to see for yourself why the show chose Iceland as one of its modern-day representations of the fictional Westeros for season two through seven. You’ll visit Þingvellir National Park where scenes at The Bloody Gate were lensed, as well as Wildlings roaming south of The Wall, the introduction of Styr, and after leaving The Hound, Arya’s journey to finding a ship to Braavos. You’ll also visit the Settlement Era Viking Lodge in the valley of Þjórsárdalur where elaborate scenes were shot including a particularly hair-raising massacre in season four.
Regardless of whether you’re a fan of the show, taking in the majestic and sweeping views, watching the dancing waterfalls, capturing the breath-taking panoramas, and experiencing the stillness and solitude of Iceland’s unparalleled nature just may inspire a new work fiction that is all your own!
