The Game of Thrones Locations
You will be surprised to know that the locations you will visit on this tour are quite popular ones among the tourists and are often loaded with visitors. But what makes visiting them of this tour special is that you will get to experience them in the light most visitors do not get to. The tour consists of several destinations including a few spots from the famous Golden Circle of the country. You will be visiting the UNSECO world heritage site Þingvellir National Park where you will see the Bloody Gates. If you have watched Game of Thrones religiously then you may already be familiar with the Bloody Gates. It served as the narrow passage that Lord Baelish and Sansa Stark took to reach the Eyrie. The same passageway was also taken by Arya Stark and the Hound later on. The Bloody Gate scenes were filmed at the very famous Þingvellir National Park, which is the very first stop on the infamous Golden Circle of Iceland.
While the Bloody Gate is quite a significant scene in the show, several others were filmed in the same spot. These scenes include the wildings wandering around the south of the wall, Arya Stark abandoning the Hound, and running off to find a ship to Braavos and the canyon where Styr is introduced.
The next location you will make a stop at is the settlement-era lodge in Þjórsárdalur valley where you will experience a real-life Viking house. This is the place where a very gruesome massacre of a village was filmed, something for which Game of Thrones is known for massacre. Several waterfalls will also be a part of your tour destinations as well as some secret locations.
