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.

Must do if a GOT fan!

This tour allows you to see famous filming spots from GOT! Our tour guide-Mobus-was hilarious and extremely knowledgeable about the places visited, as well as Iceland’s culture and history. I enjoyed snapping photos, and imagining I was with the characters while filming. This was a fantastic day!

Booking Nightmare!

You choose a date on the Viator site, book and pay for the excursion, and it's not guaranteed. This trip was canceled twice. Then the bus left without us! Remember the tour operator is not Viator, it's Gray Line. We met several people who had schedule issues with Gray Line. And now, after booking most of my Iceland excursions using Viator, I cannot get a refund!

Dee Dee was a great guide. Energetic, funny, and knowledgeable about GOT. This tour was a geat extension to other tours we took adding a different perspective. She made us official Game of Thrones NERDS. LOL Highly recommended.

DEE DEE IS AMAZING! We had such a great time on our GOT tour. It was great to see all the locations and the horses were adorable! The weather was a tad warm for Iceland so the van was a little stuffy but we stopped often to see the scenery and cool off. Would highly recommend for any GOT fans out there.

Terrific tour. Guide was sooo knowledgeable, and gave us excellent information about how the sites we saw were seen in Game of Thrones. She also provided insights into the life of locals. It was wonderful.

Our most knowledgable guide Dee Dee was so well prepared and enthusiastic and fun. She showed us pictures of the scenes to compare with the locations, so we could exactly stand into the steps of our beloved characters. But as the locations were so beautiful and not included in other tours, I think it would be worth joining even if you did not see the series.

This was a nice tour even if you have no or limited GOT knowledge. There were so many stops and they really broke up the time in the bus. I would highly recommend.
