Departure Time

10:00 AM
Enjoy pickup at selected Reykjavik hotels. With your local guide, climb aboard your comfortable, climate-controlled coach—ewuipped with Wi-Fi—and set off through southern Iceland's screen-worthy scenery. As you travel, your guide gives an introduction to Iceland's role in the filming of 'Game of Thrones.'

Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was the setting for many of the scenes in the show featuring the White Walkers. Disembark from the bus to check out the gorge of Thingvellir, where the European and American tectonic plates are slowly drifting apart, causing a massive crack in the earth's surface.

Stop for a drink and a snack (own expense), then continue on to one of Iceland's largest geothermal power stations. Set on the shores of Lake Thingvallavatn, this landmark is not a filming location, but its natural beauty makes it a worthwhile stop.

See the waterfall Þórufoss where a local goat was attacked by one of Daenerys‘ dragons. Meet some of the four-legged stars of the series, Icelandic horses who played parts as Westeros garrons, and are now enjoying their fame at a horse farm near Reykjavik. Almannagjá gorge in Thingvellir was used to film scenes depicting the Bloody gate of the Eyrie.

At the Thjorsárdalur valley, re-imagine the scene where a quiet farming village was attacked by Wildlings and the Thenns. Walk around the village on foot before climbing back aboard the bus and returning to Reykjavik.

Excellent trip! Guide was brilliant and even though we couldn’t get to the village or waterfall because of the snow we didn’t feel like we had missed out. Great day out.

Terrible weather. Cold, blowing snow, icy trails. LOVED IT!!! Felt like I was an actor!!! Covered the same general areas as Golden Circle tour but went to specific areas not covered by Golden Circle. Good tour guide—he was an extra in the show so he had some great insights into the filming. Do it!!!!

As a fan of the show, it was amazing to see the actual filming locations as opposed to a set! Our guide was not only knowledgeable but also humorous along our trek! Happy to say no White Walkers we’re located and we all returned safely!

This was a fun tour - our guide (Ziggy) and driver were friendly and knowledgeable. We only covered three film locations (all from Season 4) in the eight hours we were on the tour, but each site was interesting, and our guide was able to answer everyone's questions. We saw a number of waterfalls and got a nice overview of the southwest area of Iceland on this tour. The tour could be improved by having the guide take a few minutes to allow for intoductions, so those on the tour can say where they're from and get to know each other. Also, if this is a Game of Thrones excursion, you've got to play the Game of Thrones music at some point during the tour! Otherwise, we enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to fans of the show.
