What You Can Expect

'Game of Thrones' Filming Locations Tour From Reykjavik

Öxarárfoss waterfall

Enjoy pickup at selected Reykjavik hotels or make your own way to the meeting point. With your local guide, climb aboard your comfortable, climate-controlled coach and set off through southern Iceland's screen-worthy scenery. As you travel, your guide will give an introduction to Iceland's role in the filming of Game of Thrones.

Your first stop will be Thingvellir National Park, a 40-minute drive. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was the set 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. Please check the availability, this tour is operated daily, all year round

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.

This was a remarkable tour. Our guide, Theo, was a extra in several of the episodes of GOT and was able to recount his experiences as he shared many places used for filming. The visits to the horse farm that supplied the Icelandic horses not ponies and a Viking style farm used in a wildling battle scene were particularly memorable. Not recommended for young children, but fantastic for fans of the books and TV series. Highly recommended.

Words cannot even express how WONDERFUL this tour was! Theo was our guide. He was knowledgeable, entertaining, candid, funny, open, sincere and genuinely passionate about his calling. My son and I were entranced with his stories, experiences, pictures and general openness about GOT. To have a guide that is so caring and passionate is a tribute to Iceland and all she has to offer. There wasn't a boring minute of our tour and we left feeling much more informed about Iceland, her history and culture. Theo was personable and attentive. If you get Theo for this tour, be prepared to enjoy your day and be actively engaged in every part of the tour. The worst part of this tour was it ending. Truly feel like we made a friend in Theo and have friended him on FB. He has a unique name on FB so no spoiler here but if you get the chance, ask him - I'm sure he'd appreciate more followers! WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

To start this is a LONG tour. Eight hours with three actual shooting locations one is the continental divide a visit to a horse farm horses were in GoT and a couple of additional stops. Getting that out of the way our guide made it very entertaining. At no point did the trip drag or did I regret getting on that bus. Our guide is an extra in Game of Thrones and had great stories from filming the show and other films he worked in. During the time on the bus he would tell his stories and crack jokes all while the beautiful landscape passed by. Like the Game of Thrones itself this tour isn't meant for the young or those easily offend by I'll say salty language.
Although tipping is not a required thing in Iceland I HIGHLY recommend you tip your guide... they make the tour. My husband and I tipped 50 US exchange rate is not your friend. We thought that was a minimum for the entertainment we got for 8 hours.
The bus doesnt have a restroom, but it does have free WiFi that worked fantastic for the entire trip.

Really good day. Was cold and windy hey welcome to Iceland but our tour guide Tiao sp? was awesome. He had a lot of great stories from being involved with the filming of the show in Iceland and made the day fun. If your not into the show the scenery is classic Iceland and not on the regular tourist stops so worth the day. If your a fan than this is must.

Theo is an amazing guide - comes dressed as a proper GoT character he was an extra in all the seasons. He knows an immense amount about the show, and has quite a few printouts to show the group what the scenes looked like in GoT compared to the locations we went to. Also gave lots of facts and things to do in Reykjavik as it was, and had quite a dry, witty sense of humour that I really could identify with!

Our guide was amazing! He worked as an extra on Game of Thrones in many memorable scenes. His wit and anecdotes kept us entertained throughout the tour. You’ll know if you get him. We saw many must see locations and toured places not included in the Golden Circle tours I’ve seen. Highly recommended.

Fantastic tour with an amazing tour guide! Our guide was an extra on the show and was able to share some great stories from the set. We were initially worried that the sites would overlap with locations we had been to on other tours during a trip. This ended up not being the case at all! The sites are all fascinating and very different from anything else we had seen. Even family members who have not seen the show are sure to enjoy the sites on the tour!
