Vacation in Westeros with These ‘Game of Thrones’ Tours

April 14, 2019

If you’re idea of the happiest place on Earth looks more like King’s Landing than Disneyland, then you’re in luck.

Game of Thrones fans looking to use their vacation days to explore the real-life locations sites of the HBO series now have several tours with which to visit Westeros.

You’ll want to head to Croatia and the port city of Dubrovnik to find Lovrijenac Fortress, where Cersei Lannister resides in King’s Landing. Get Your Guides’s offers very reasonably price walking tours that also include a visit to the Battle of Blackwater by guides that were extras on the series. The site also offers driving tours and a cruise to take in all the majestic splendor.

If you’re looking to find the king in the north, then TravelPirates.com will take you two hours outside Dublin, Ireland to Castle Ward, which doubles for Winterfell. You’ll get to bundle up in some of the costumes, engage in a sword fight and enjoy a GoT-themed meal. And assuming there’s no White Walkers in sight, the package also includes an overnight stay glamping under the stars in a nearby forest. It’s a trip the north will always remember!

If you get your Iron Bank loan approved, then the ultimate luxury is a 15-day tour of Croatia, Spain and Morocco with Zicasso.com. For about $6200 per person, you get 11 private tours, personal guides, free breakfast and a hot air balloon ride as you retrace Cersei’s walk of shame, explore Meereen’s fighting pits and marvel at the opulence of the castles of Dorne. And if you want the full seven kingdoms experience and have a few dragon eggs to spare, you can add Iceland and Ireland to your itinerary.

Regardless of your travel plans, everyone will get an escape from their troubles when Game of Thrones premieres Sunday at 9pm on HBO.
