What You Can Expect

Private Tour: 'Game of Thrones' North of the Wall Locations plus Myvatn Nature Baths Entry

Take in the ruins of Dimmuborgir, the site of Castle Black on your Game of Thrones tour

Start your Game of Thrones tour with a pickup from your Akureyri or Lake Mývatn hotel by 'super jeep,' a uniquely designed SUV mounted on monster tires that measure upwards of 38 inches (95cm) tall. Then, set out to discover some of the series’ top Icelandic filming locations with your private guide. Famously, Iceland has hosted the 'north of the Wall' setting in the mythical land of Westeros, a remote area inhabited by Wildlings and fearsome zombies known as White Walkers.

Hear of the second series’ episode when the Night’s Watch were hunted down by White Walkers, and enjoy a stop at a lava field near Kálfaströnd to see where filming took place. After posing for photos against a backdrop of ethereal Icelandic scenery, continue your tour to see further sights beyond the Wall.

Call in at the ruins of Dimmuborgir, the site of Castle Black, and hear insider gossip about popular Night’s Watch characters who lived there such as Benjen Stark and Jon Snow — the personal steward of Lord Commander Jeor Mormont. Grjótagjá Rift lies nearby at Lake Mývatn, so head to it next and gaze at the steam that rises from its geothermic-heated water inside. While the cave was featured as a Game of Thrones location, only the actual entrance made the final cut. As the steam proved to be a hindrance in filming, a green screen version of the cave's interior was used to film the famous scene between Jon Snow and Igrette.

After a break for lunch at a nearby cafe (own expense), stroll through Höfði forest and wander to a little-known vantage point to see where the computer-generated Wall would stand. Let your gaze — and imagination — run wild, as you picture the Night’s Watch guarding their region from zombie attacks and raids.

Snap photos of the beguiling landscape, hop back inside your jeep and travel to Mývatn Nature Baths to finish your tour on a relaxing high note. Like many Icelandic spas, the site’s beautiful lagoon is filled from a natural hot spring whose soothing waters boast mineral-rich properties that treat your skin as you bathe. Unwind in the water, use the sauna if you wish, and then finish your day with a drop-off at your hotel.
