I booked this tour at the last minute as another tour with another company had been cancelled due to bad weather so I didn't really know what to expect. The guide, Theo, on first impression is very enthusiastic and chatty; qualities you absolutely want in a guide. BUT, does he really need to talk non-stop (yes, non-stop) for the entire tour? There was a lot of duplication of information; he talks about the locations and what was filmed there on the bus before we stop & we get the same info again at the stop with no time to explore the area; there were a few places we all agreed over lunch that we would have liked to walk around on our own. His obsession, there's no other word to describe it, with Rose Leslie and certain parts of her anatomy, are still disturbing several weeks after the tour. I get we're all adults (save for the teenage boy who was on our tour) but mention it once and not talk about her and Kit Harrington's relationship for the entire day. On the plus side, you will be the only group at many of the stops which means no dodging masses of tourists for photos. The food stop is at a roadside cafe so if fast food/junk food isn't your thing, bring along snacks. Unexpected stop on the way home at a newly opened cafe/ geology museum - has a bar and a cafe; again the guide could have given a better indication of how much time we would spend there. To me a quick stop for the rest room is 15 minutes at most - this was twice that. Had that been communicated I would have enjoyed the remainder of happy hour! Good, passed the day but tell the guide to tone down the obsession and let the group go for a walk on their own and it'd get at least an extra star.

Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

This tour takes you to some of the filming locations in Iceland where you’ll get to experience Icelandic nature just like the 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 (only visited during summer season) and when the Wildlings and Thenns attack Olly's village.

We’ll also visit 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.

We’ll also 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!
