1. Visit the Iron Islands.

GoT highlights: This 9-hour tour of the Iron Islands will take you to the place where Melisandre burned the Seven Gods on Dragonstone, as well as Ballintoy Harbour where "Theon came ashore on Pyke Island, where Ser Davos seeks the help of Salladhor Saan for the Battle of Blackwater Bay, and where Gendry excapes Dragonstone in a rowing boat."

Location: Derry, Ireland

2. Go north of the wall and experience the iconic Ice Wall.

GoT highlights: On this 5-day trip you'll get to follow in the footsteps of Jon Snow and discover the famous ice wall and locations where scenes "north of the wall" were filmed, all the while being guided by the actual guide for the GOT crew during filming. Throughout the day you'll visit the areas where the Night's Watch men were attacked by White Walkers, the cave where Jon and Ygritte had their first ~intimate moment~, and more.

Location: Iceland

3. Snap a photo at the House of Greyjoy.

GoT highlights: While a few of the themed tours around Ireland visit some of the same spots, this tour sticks out because it's the same company that transports the cast and crew during filming — aka, you're gonna get a lot of ~insider knowledge~. While on the 9-hour tour you'll visit House of Greyjoy, the caves where Melisandre gives birth, and more!

Location: Belfast, Ireland


5. Explore every beautiful part of King's Landing.
