This popular four-night tour takes you to the filming locations of the Game of Thrones famed ice wall itself, and to locations "north of the wall" (largely filmed at the beautiful Lake Myvatn) where the series' primitive "Wildlings" roam. Travellers will be regaled with tales of the "Seven Kingdoms" by local guide Jon Thor Benediktsson, who also guided the Game of Thrones crew on set during filming for the third series.

This was the second time the Game of Thrones crew filmed in Iceland so they knew what to expect. The crew returned to Iceland last summer to film scenes for season four, now in Thingvellir area, the "Parliament Plain" of ancient Iceland.

This is your chance to visit the "Land beyond the Wall" and see it brought to life with tales of the "Seven Kingdoms" by local guide Jon Thor Benediktsson.

  • Walk the land that Jon Snow, Ygritte and the Free Folk cross to reach the Wall.

Game of Thrones - Iceland: Beyond the Wall

Day 1: Arrival

Upon landing in Iceland, there is only the mysterious lava plane of the Reykjanes Peninsula standing between you and the buzz from the energetic capital city, Reykjavik. The ride across the barren lava takes little less than an hour and is thankfully devoid of any demons, making the start of your journey as safe as possible. 

The first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavik stands today and the city derived it's name "Smoky Bay" after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area – such was the deep impression made on the first settlers.

Your lodging for the night will be the modern Reykjavik Lights Hotel, situated next to Laugardalur recreational area, where you will also find the remains of brickwork washbasins where the women of Reykjavík washed their laundry in the hot springs for centuries.

A few minutes drive away the city center awaits with abundance of restaurants, cafés, clubs, and cultural events. A Northern Lights hunt is also an option during winter time (not included), either by, boat, bus or on a jeep.

Day 2: Getting closer

After a hearty breakfast your journey takes you to the domestic airport where you'll board a 60 minute flight to the beautiful town of Akureyri.

Often referred to as the "capital" of the north, Akureyri is by far the largest town in the north of Iceland and it's the second largest urban area in Iceland with a population little less than 20.000.

Located only 60 kilometers from the Arctic circle, the mountains in the area are often capped with snow year round, and in the winter they offer some of the best skiing in the country.

It would be perfect to add a Nothern Lights tour if you are visiting during winter months.

For the next two nights you'll be staying at the comfortable Hotel Nordurland right in the town's center.

Optional (at extra cost):

Day 3: Enter Free Folk's Territory

Today you will be entering the other worldly landscapes of Lake Myvatn where the scenes for „North of the Wall" were filmed.

Now it becomes apparent why Game of Thrones production crew were drawn to this area as the majestic Waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss, greets you.

According to the Icelandic Sagas the waterfall draws its name from Thorgeir of Ljosavatn throwing his statues of the heathen gods into the falls when Iceland converted to Christianity in the year 1000.

Your next stop will be the magical places were the latest series of Game of Thrones were filmed. Here you can try to relive the action in the locations seen in the series.

No, you will hopefully not encounter any White Walkers, but with Iceland's rich folklore let the story telling guide boost your imagination with tales of trolls and Hidden People alongside curious facts about what happened behind the scenes of Games of Thrones.

After a day of beautiful waterfalls, volcanos, unusual lava rock formations, steaming hot springs, bubbling mud pools and mysterious landscape you'll end the day with a splash at Myvatn Nature Baths.

Not a filming location for Game of Thrones, but the calming waters relax you while imagining to be surrounded by other Free Folk.

Day 4: Return to Reykjavik

Morning flight Reykjavik and return to Reykjavik Lights hotel.

The afternoon is free for you to explore Reykjavik and surroundings.

We think it's ideal to add a Golden Circle afternoon tour and visit Þingvellir, filming location for Game of Thrones season four along with Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir.

Day 5: Departure

Can't have enough of Game of Thrones?

Complete the experience by climbing the Wall

By adding a day in Reykjavik you get the chance to visit the glacial tongue of Solheimajokull which is a magnificent phenomenon; a rugged, raw and ever changing hub of ancient frozen water. Amazing ice formations, sinkholes and jagged ridges will be explored and along the way you'll find an ice wall on the glacier and try your hand at ice climbing. Crampons, ice axes and safety lines are provided. Contact us for details.
