If you’re a Game of Thrones fan in Iceland, you’ll not want to miss a visit to some of the show’s most famous filming locations. Since season 2, Icelandic landscapes and natural features have become hallmarks of the show’s breathtaking backdrops, including waterfalls, rift valleys, medieval villages, and most scenes North of the Wall.
The Game of Thrones tour with Gray Line Iceland was the first in Iceland. We began taking our customers on this tour as first in Iceland from September 2014, and since then it was an amazing experience for everyone who joined us! Will you be the next one?
The Game of Thrones tour takes you to of the filming locations of season 4 filmed in Iceland where you’ll get to experience Icelandic nature just like the Game of Thrones cast members: take in the majestic, sweeping views, watch dancing waterfalls, capture the panoramas in the distance, and experience the stillness and solitude.
Iceland didn’t make its debut in “Game of Thrones” until season two, but since then it has become a favorite on the show. After a visit to Gullfoss waterfall, the producers of the show knew that Iceland’s diverse landscape would be the perfect backdrop for some of the show’s fiercest and most dramatic scenes like Drogon the dragon hunting for goats, the Hound and Brienne of Tarth fighting for Arya Stark (this location is only visited during summer season) and when the Wildlings and Thenns attack Olly's village. More?
Tour visits the Bloody Gate, which is the narrow passageway to the Eyrie taken by Lord Baelish (Little Finger) and Sansa Stark and later by the Hound and Arya. The scenes at the Bloody Gate were filmed at Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site where the age-old Icelandic parliament, the Althing, was established.
Various other scenes were filmed in the area such as the Wildlings roaming South of the Wall, the Thenns and Wildlings meeting in the canyon where Styr is introduced and Arya running off to find a ship to Braavos after leaving the Hound. Next on the stop is a walk around the settlement-era lodge in Þjórsárdalur valley where elaborate scenes were shot, including a certain hair-raising massacre of a village.
It’s a real kick for fans of the show to inhabit the world of Game of Thrones, but even those who’ve never seen the show will be able to enjoy the striking scenery on this outing. Winter is coming, so don’t miss out on this excursion before the white-walker apocalypse wipes us out!
