Game of Thrones - Iceland: Beyond the Wall

Visit the legendary Icelandic landmarks featured in the hit TV show Game of Thrones on this thoroughly entertaining tour of some truly awe-inspiring locations.

Visit the various settings of the series, such as those breathtaking places where the "North of the Wall" scenes were filmed. You will be captivated by tales of the "Seven Kingdoms" by local guide Jon Thor Benediktsson, who was a guide for the Game of Thrones crew during the filming of the third season. That trip was the second time the Game of Thrones crew had filmed in Iceland, so they knew what to expect

The crew returned to Iceland in mid January 2017, as parts of season 7 were filmed there. Season 7 aired in the summer of 2017 and many scenes were shot in Iceland. You can visit these location and experience the land beyond the Wall for yourself.

Game Of Thrones has brought great magic and adventure to Iceland since it was first released in 2011, whether it be dragons destroying goats, or Iceland’s own Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson playing “The Mountain.”

Highlights of the Game of Thrones tour

• Travel to North Iceland to experience the astonishing film locations showcased in Game of Thrones.
• Visit the areas where the Night's Watch men, including Samwell Tarly and Lord Commander Mormont, were attacked by the White Walkers.
• Walk the land that Jon Snow, Ygritte, and the Free Folk cross to reach the Wall.
• Visit the cave where Jon Snow and Ygritte have their first intimate romantic encounter.
• Learn about how the Free Folk, like the ancient Vikings, lived and survived in their harsh environment.

Optional activities

• Go on a best-seller day tour and visit Thingvellir, filming location for Game of Thrones season four, as well as Gullfoss waterfall and the famous Geysir hot spring on an afternoon tour (Or add an extra day and take a full-day tour visiting Game of Thrones sites in South Iceland).
• Take a northern lights hunt from Reykjavik, either by bus or on a jeep

Day 1: Arrival

Upon landing in Iceland, there is only the mysterious lava plain 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 (airport transfer not included in package price).

The first settler of Iceland built his farm on the peninsula where Reykjavik stands today and the city derives its name after the columns of steam that rose from the hot springs in the area (Reykjavik means “smoky bay”).

Only a few minutes drive away from your modern Reykjavik hotel, the city centre awaits with abundance of restaurants, cafés, clubs, and cultural events. A Northern Lights hunt is a recommended optional activity during winter (not included), whether by boat, bus, or jeep.
Overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 2: Getting Closer

After a hearty breakfast your journey takes you to the Reykjavik 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 is the second largest urban area in Iceland with a population of a little less than 20,000.

Located only 100 kilometers (62 miles) 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.

If you didn't do so on day 1, today would be perfect to add a Northern Lights tour if you are visiting during winter months.

For the next two nights you'll be staying in Akureyri.

Optional (at extra cost):



Akureyri  |Nonni House

Day 3: Enter Free Folk's Territory

Breakfast at your hotel. Today you will be entering the otherworldly landscapes of Lake Myvatn where the scenes for "North of the Wall" were filmed.

As the majestic Waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss, greets you, it quickly becomes apparent why the Game of Thrones production crew were drawn to this area. 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 where several scenes for Game of Thrones were filmed. Here you can try to relive the action in the locations seen in the series.

Hopefully you won't encounter any White Walkers, but Iceland's rich folklore lets the storytelling guide boost your imagination with tales of trolls and Hidden People alongside curious facts from behind the scenes of Games of Thrones.

After a day of beautiful waterfalls, volcanoes, unusual lava rock formations, steaming hot springs, bubbling mud pools and mysterious landscapes, you'll end the day with a splash at the Myvatn Nature Baths. While not a filming location for Game of Thrones, the calming waters will still relax you while you imagine being surrounded by other Free Folk.

Day 4: Return to Reykjavik

Breakfast at your hotel. Morning flight to Reykjavik and return to your Reykjavik hotel.

The afternoon is free for you to explore the city and its surroundings.

You can also add a Golden Circle afternoon tour and visit Thingvellir, filming location for Game of Thrones season four, along with Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir.

Overnight in Reykjavik.


Day 5: Departure

Breakfast at your hotel. If your flight is in the afternoon you can spend the day at your leisure or experience Iceland further by going on a day tour. You can also add extra days to your stay and we will help you make arrangements.


Can't get 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.
