With a professional guide leading the way, follow in the footsteps of the White Walkers at the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, visit the breathtaking natural vistas of Lake Thingvallavatn.

Start your day with a pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, or make your own way to the prearranged meeting point to join up with your expert guide. Hop aboard your comfortable coach, and set off on a scenic journey through southern Iceland's rugged terrain. As you travel, listen to your guide talk about the popular
Game of Thrones
TV series, adapted from George R.R. Martin's
A Song of Ice and Fire
novels, and how Iceland's nature and history corresponds with the fantasy series.
Visit the valley where Drogon surprised a goat herder by a waterfall, snatching up one of the goats before flying away. Then arrive at the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park. Hop out of your coach at the gorge of Thingvellir, the stomping ground of the White Walkers and the trail that the savage Wildlings took across the north to the Wall. Marvel at the fissure in the earth's crust where the European and American tectonic plates slowly drift apart, and take in the expansive Icelandic landscape that stretches around you. Walking through the fissure, you can follow in the footsteps of Sansa Stark and Littlefinger on their way to the Eyrie, but instead of ending at the Bloody Gate you will see the magnificent waterfall Öxarárfoss.
Next, enjoy a brief stop for refreshments (own expense) before continuing on to Thjorsárdalur valley. Step out of the coach onto the site where a peaceful farming village was attacked by Wildlings under Tormund and the cannibalistic Thenns. As you explore the area on foot, be reminded of this bloody massacre. This is where the character Olly was first introduced to the series.
Your tour then concludes back in Reykjavik with a drop-off at the original start point. On route, you’ll also see some of the awe-inspiring scenery that was featured in
