Pack your bags and travel to the homeworld of a Song of Ice and Fire, Westeros. This six-day itinerary to the Golden Circle, South Coast, and Snaefellsnes Peninsula will let you step onto the sets that housed some of the most dramatic moments in the thrilling HBO Series, Game of Thrones and hike up a glacier in Vatnajokull National Park.

You'll walk in the footsteps of Arya and the Hound, see the major Golden Circle sites, and even catch a glimpse of the Children of the Forest when you visit the place where they created the first White Walker.

By booking this tour, you'll avoid spending weeks planning that perfect Iceland itinerary. We've already covered the planning part to save you from all the hassle. We also made this tour available for a great price.

Organizing your trip may sound exciting, but you risk missing out on some of the best attractions. By letting us handle the planning, we'll ensure that all the essential stops you need to see and experience on this trip are included.

This holiday package is fit for the traveling nobles, with all accommodations and excursions taken care of. From the moment you land to your day of departure, you'll be in good hands and set for a stress-free holiday where you can explore lands both in and out of this world. Our packages come with a personal travel agent you can contact any time of the day, seven days a week.

You'll explore the best-known sites in Iceland, many of which have doubled as locations on both sides of the Wall in the lands of Westeros, such as Thingvellir, which is home to the Bloody Gate, and Eastwatch-By-The-Sea, conveniently located on the Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach.

Also, you will experience what it is like North of the Wall with a glacier hiking tour on top of the Solheimajokull glacier.

Other gems in this trip include the Golden Circle, Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon, and Kirkjufell mountain. You'll also have the chance to upgrade your excursions and get a little more thrill into your holidays, such as adding a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a snowmobiling excursion to the glaciers, or a snorkeling tour in the crystal clear waters of the Silfra fissure.

These extra stops add to why people love this summer vacation tour that has earned high ratings and positive reviews.

This is a trip that no true fan can miss. Sharpen your Valyrian Steel blade, fill your flask with ale, and travel the King's Road, rather, Iceland's magnificent South Coast! Check availability by choosing a date.

Day 1

Day 1 - Arrival in Reykjavik

Your journey begins as soon as you land at Keflavik airport. After you land, you’ll grab your bags and hop on a bus to Reykjavik, which will drop you off at your accommodation. 

The drive from Keflavik to Reykjavik will allow you to acclimate to Iceland’s incredible landscapes: you’ll pass through moss-laden lava fields, fjords, and traditional Icelandic villages.

On your way to Iceland’s capital city, you could stop at the Blue Lagoon. This world-renowned spa is known for its healing waters, vivid azure colors, and luxurious treatments. It is in the middle of a moss-covered lava field, giving it an otherworldly atmosphere. 

If you add the Blue Lagoon, it will be arranged according to your flights. If there is no time to visit the lagoon today, it can be added to another day. Your travel consultant will be able to arrange this for you. There is still plenty to see and do in Reykjavik if you have extra free time.

Once you arrive in Reykjavik, where you will stay on this night, you could explore the streets and the small nooks and crannies of the old downtown or settle for a solid night’s rest before you set off into the wilds of Iceland.

If you choose to explore the city, check out the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center, the city’s leading cultural hub. It’s the favorite venue for concerts, exhibitions, and festivals. Moreover, it has a beautiful facade featuring 714 glass panels with LED lights, illuminating the building at night.

Next, about 2.4 miles (3.9 kilometers) from Harpa, is the Perlan museum. It features interactive displays and exhibits about the country’s rich nature. Check out the museum’s hemispherical rotating glass dome that doubles as a viewing deck for visitors to appreciate the cityscape. 

Remember to stop at the Hallgrimskirkja church, about 1.6 miles (2.5 kilometers) away. Standing 245 feet (74.5 meters) tall, the church is Iceland’s tallest and one of Reykjavik’s most famous landmarks.

Day 2
The geyser Strokkur is located on the popular Golden Circle sightseeing route.

Day 2 - The Golden Circle with Arya and the Hound

On your second day, your foray into the fantasy world begins as you explore one of Iceland's main attractions: The Golden Circle. And to make it even more exciting, you will find the Eyrie today. And it just happens to be at your first stop, Thingvellir National Park, the original meeting place of one of the oldest parliaments in the world, the Althingi.

It might look familiar, as the scenes at The Bloody Gate in the Eyrie were filmed at the Almannagja canyon, which you'll have the chance to walk—though hopefully, less exhausted than when the Hound and Arya arrived at the Bloody Gate.

At Thingvellir, you can also add a little extra to your day. You can go for an awe-inspiring dip in the Silfra fissure and swim between two continental plates as it is here at Thingvellir where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. 

Participants joining the snorkeling tour need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim.

Next, you'll visit the Haukadalur geothermal area, home to the great Geysir. The English word "geyser" comes from this powerful geyser, which now lies dormant. Strokkur, however, the area's most powerful geyser, erupts every five to ten minutes, blasting a stream of water 49 to 66 feet (15 to 20 meters) into the air.

Your third stop of the day is the enormous Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland's most iconic and beloved sites, where the Game of Thrones team captured stock footage for future use. Witness the power of nature as the falls thunder into a misty basin. The canyon walls on both sides of the waterfall reach up to 230 feet (70 meters) and descend into the Gullfossgjufur canyon.

At Gullfoss, you can opt for an adrenaline-inducing snowmobile ride on the nearby Langjokull glacier. It is a surefire way to make the day brighter. 

Alternatively, you can spend your evening visiting the spectacular Fagradalsfjall volcano, currently erupting on the Reykjanes peninsula. This five-hour-long hiking excursion will give you an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime perspective of this primordial phenomenon.

At the end of the day, you'll head to your accommodation in Reykjavik for a relaxing and restful night.

Day 3
The large sea stacks Reynisdrangar on the South Coast were featured in scenes set in Eastwatch-by-the-Sea in the TV show Game of Thrones.

Day 3 - The South Coast, Glacier Hike & Eastwatch-by-the-Sea

On day three, you pack your suitcase and head out for a two-day journey along the South Coast or, if you prefer, venture beyond the Wall. Your first stop of the day will be Seljalandsfoss, a 197-foot (60-meter) tall waterfall in the south that you can walk behind.

From there, you'll continue to the impressive Skogafoss, a wide curtain of water that crashes down to the rocks below with a roar. The power of this waterfall causes a spray of water that often casts a beautiful rainbow over it in the summer sun.

Next, you will head to Solheimajokull, an outlet glacier of Myrdalsjokull glacier, Iceland's fourth-largest ice cap, also used as the location for The Fist of the First Men. There, you will go glacier hiking—an experience akin to a true North-of-the-Wall adventure. Your guide will provide you with a harness, crampons, an ice ax, and a helmet, so you're somewhat more protected than a wildling trying to scale the Wall in wartime.

After this unique experience, you'll jet off to Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, filmed on-site at Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach near the village Vík i Myrdal. Now, as if transported to the edge of the Wall in real life, you'll spy the Reynisdrangar basalt sea stacks rising out of the sea in the shadow of the mountain Reynisfjall.

Reynisfjara does not only serve as Eastwatch-by-the-Sea; you might join Jon Snow and the Onion Knight to meet with Tormund and The Brotherhood Without Banners or spot Viserion decimating the Wall. You will have time to photograph these dark formations, but be mindful that this beach is hazardous: sneaker waves make their way to shore and will take you out to sea. You are not, unfortunately, Ironborn.

Then it is time to cross the Wall and continue along the South Coast to your accommodation near Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon for a night's rest before further adventures await.

Day 4
Ice melting as the sun sets on the Diamond Beach in Vatnajökull National Park.

Day 4 - Beyond the Wall - Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

On the fourth day of your trip, you'll spend North of the Wall, starting at Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. This stunning natural feature is often called "The Crown Jewel of Iceland," and you'll understand why once you have been there.

The lagoon has a maximum depth of 814 feet (248 meters), making it Iceland's deepest lake. Moreover, it has a surface area of 11.2 square miles (18 square kilometers). As for the icebergs, some of them are over 1,000 years old.

The lagoon is known for its enormous icebergs that have broken off the Breidamerkurjokull glacier tongue and tumbled into the deep waters. These hulking crystalline giants float in an aqua blue lake, stained blue by oxygen trapped in the ice for thousands of years.

While you are there, make sure to look around for seals, but many of them make the lagoon their home and can be seen lounging on the massive bergs in sunlight, enjoying the weather.

If you're traveling from May onwards, you have the option now to cruise these crystal waters on a glacier lagoon boat tour. Sail onto the pristine lagoon and pass the white and brilliant blue bergs as your guide gives you more information about the history and geography of the area.

You can also visit the nearby Diamond Beach, where the ice calved from bergs floats ashore, adorning the black sand like beautiful jewels.

Also known as Breidamerkursandur, Diamond Beach is almost 3,000 feet (900 meters) from the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. It features icebergs that wash up on the black sands, creating a sparkling effect that resembles shining diamonds.

Then it is time to head back to the city to rest after your long journey, to the Wall and back. Your evening will be spent in Reykjavik in your comfortable accommodation.

Day 5
The conical mountain Kirkjufell can be found on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.

Day 5 - Snaefellsnes - Birthplace of the White Walkers

Today, you will travel to the Snaefellsnes peninsula in West Iceland, best known for its crown, Snaefellsjokull glacier, to which many legends and stories are bound. The peninsula also plays a role in the Westeros mythos, being the birthplace of the White Walkers.

Snaefellsjokull is a glacial stratovolcano that rests at the peninsula's tip. It stands mightily at 4,744 feet (1,446 meters) tall, with a twin-peaked glacier capping it.

Avid readers will also recognize this glacier as the entrance point to an underground world in Jules Verne's novel "Journey To The Centre of The Earth." 

Moreover, the glacier is also rich in folklore. It is believed to be an ancient energy source. Some Icelanders even say the rock formations surrounding Snaefellsjokull are homes of the hidden people.

Another early stop for the day is Djupalonssandur, a black pebble beach. There lie the four ancient stones that Icelandic boys had to lift back in the day to see if they were strong enough to become fishermen. Perhaps you could try to lift them, but they range from 51 to 340 pounds (23 to 154 kilos).

You'll also stop to see the dramatic Londrangar basalt cliffs before reaching the roots of the Snaefellsjokull glacier. Situated on the westernmost part of the peninsula, Snaefellsjokull is one of Iceland's most iconic attractions. Some claim it to be the gates of Hell.

Your next stop set the stage for many Game of Thrones scenes. Kirkjufell mountain is referred to as "The Mountain like an Arrowhead" and where the Children of the Forest created the very first White Walker. This iconic landform is a recurring symbol throughout the series, both in visions and actuality.

Kirkjufell measures 1,519 feet (463 meters) tall and is one of the most popular visual landmarks in the area. Interestingly, at the base of the mountain is a lake that reflects Kirkjufell's mirror image during clear days.

While in the area, you'll also explore the picturesque Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall, which frames the steep hillsides of the mountain for a perfect photo.

At the end of the day, you will return to the city for a night safe within stone walls, where no White Walkers can get you.

Day 6
Red and yellow flowers in Reykjavík city.

Day 6 - On the King's Road - Departure Day

Today, you'll say goodbye to this fantasy land and return to your own realm. Wake up bright and early to have some bread "and two of those little fish;" maybe throw in "a mug of that good dark beer to wash them down," and, of course, "some bacon. Burnt black."

For those who have a later flight and choose to visit the Blue Lagoon today, you will finish off your stay unwinding before you head to the airport. This is the perfect place to relax and bathe in the warm, mineral-rich waters as you look back on the incredible adventure you have just taken in the land of fire and ice.

If your flight is later, there are plenty of things to do in Reykjavik. If you have an early flight back home, we wish you a pleasant journey.

Your shuttle will pick you up and take you to the airport in time for your flight. If your flight leaves in the afternoon, you could visit the Blue Lagoon for some relaxation before your departure flight.

Then it is time to depart the lands of Westeros and Iceland, but we will certainly meet again next season.
