Iceland's surreal glaciers, mountains, and waterfalls were exactly what brought Game of Thrones to the Arctic island for filming. Experience the TV show in real life by visiting the following film sites on a Thrones-themed excursion in Iceland.

Ruins of Dimmuborgir as Castle Black
The Ruins of Dimmuborgir, composed of a collection of eerie lava structures, have been used a key filming site for the show's Castle Black, the famed fortress for the Night's Watch. Follow in the footsteps of famous "crows" such as Jon Snow and Benjen Stark as you explore this location on a day trip from Akureyri.

Thingvellir National Park as North of The Wall
Imagine a stare-down with the menacing White Walker army during a stop at Thingvellir National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site is not only an important part of Icelandic history but has also been used as fantasy filming location to depict the icy lands north of The Wall on Game of Thrones.

Lake Mývatn as North of the Wall
This scenic Icelandic lake is home to Grjótagjá Rift, a spooky subterranean space used in a famous scene featuring Jon Snow and Ygritte in season three. The area has also been used heavily to depict the icy world north of The Wall. Visits to this key filming location typically depart from Akureyri.

Thjorsárdalur Valley as the Wildling Battle Site
Iceland's windswept Thjorsárdalur valley was selected by the Game of Thrones producers as the setting for an idyllic farming village attacked by the Wildings in season four. Most tours to the valley's volcanic terrain depart from Reykjavik.

Want to explore all of the Thrones' seven kingdoms? Other spectacular filming locations can be found in Croatia, Northern Ireland, Spain, and Malta.
