Please Note

Pick-up is offered from most hotels and guesthouses in the capital area, as well as from cruise ports. Pick-ups from hotels in the city center are not possible from directly in front of the hotel due to traffic restrictions, instead passengers must come to the nearest bus pickup point.

What To Expect

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!
Margo_B, Sep 2021
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!
Carol_M, Sep 2021
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!

Great Tour and Added Perspective
John_M, Aug 2021
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.
Pure fun!
Tricia_W, Aug 2021
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!
Susan_B, Aug 2021
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.
A fun tour for GoT fans
Anja_D, Aug 2021
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.
Very interactive and interesting.
Aswani_N, Aug 2021
Totally unexpected horse farm stop. This was so wonderful. Guide had excellent knowledge and narration to interest someone like me who has not seen or read Game of Thrones! Was a coudy day but befitting the tour!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for the review. This tour visits some pretty fantastic sites, so even those who have not seen the show are still able to enjoy it. Glad to hear you liked it.
Great tour
Stacey_H, Jul 2021
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.
Great day
MaryAnn_F, Jul 2021
Beautiful views at all the stops . Our guide knew all the stories about the filming of “Game” done in this area. He spoke perfect English & was easy to understand.
Amazing

Sonia_Y, Jul 2021
Dee Dee, our tour guide, was the best!! Very knowledgeable and entertaining. She should be named the “Iceland Welcome Embassador”. If anyone takes this tour, they should go with her.

Excellent day out
Samantha_R, Mar 2020
Excellent trip! Guide was brilliant and even though we couldn’t get to the village or waterfall because of the snow we didn’t feel like we had missed out. Great day out.

Feel like an actir
Lloyd, Mar 2020
Terrible weather. Cold, blowing snow, icy trails. LOVED IT!!! Felt like I was an actor!!! Covered the same general areas as Golden Circle tour but went to specific areas not covered by Golden Circle. Good tour guide—he was an extra in the show so he had some great insights into the filming. Do it!!!!
If you miss this...shame, shame, shame!
Janice_K, Feb 2020
As a fan of the show, it was amazing to see the actual filming locations as opposed to a set! Our guide was not only knowledgeable but also humorous along our trek! Happy to say no White Walkers we’re located and we all returned safely!
GOT tour
Anna_M, Dec 2019
Thought the locations we saw were great but only really 4 max... so a bit disappointed. Tour guide was great though & an extra.
