When you think of Game of Thrones, you probably think of a few distinguishing aspects. Perhaps it’s the gruesome Red Wedding. Perhaps it’s the genius brain of George R. R. Martin. Perhaps it’s Hodor and THAT heart-wrenching scene. Perhaps it’s the White Walkers. Perhaps it’s the characters. Or maybe, you might look beyond the storyline and focus on the incredible filming locations used for every single series. Ever wanted to travel those Seven Kingdoms? Well, now you can.
The travel agency
One travel agency has realized that there are MILLIONS of people out there who are obsessed with Game of Thrones and the locations in which it was filmed. So, Zicasso is now giving those fans the opportunity to travel with them around all of Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms, to check out the locations in real life. Zicasso offers fans two different tours to choose from; the Game of Thrones Season 7 Spain Tour: Fire & Blood, and the Game of Thrones Season 7 Iceland Tour: Winter is Here. Which one will you choose?
Fire & Blood
If you’re looking for a bit of sun during your Game of Thrones tour, then the Fire & Blood tour will be right up your street. This 12-day trip will allow you to travel around Spain, allowing you the chance to follow in the footsteps of some of your favorite characters. If you’re a fan of the Lannisters, you can check out their digs at Casterly Rock (called Trujillo Castle in real life). You could pretend to be the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, as you re-enact her walk across the golden sands of Itzurun Beach (but you might not be able to take over the Seven Kingdoms and claim the Iron Throne, just FYI) or you could check out the gorgeous Water Gardens within the Palace of Dorne at the Alcazar of Seville. The tour will start you off in Barcelona, before venturing across the dangerous lands (not really) to Braavos (Girona), San Sebastian, Bilbao; to Dorne (Seville), Westeros (Caceres) and then claiming your title in Madrid. What could be better?
Winter Is Here
As the wise Jon Snow once told us, winter is here – so why not explore it? The Game of Thrones Winter Is Here package with Zicasso offers you the chance to follow in the footsteps of Snow, as he ventures even further north of the Wall. So you might want to keep an eye out for White Walkers and Wildlings. The 7-day tour will take you around the beautiful country of Iceland, incorporating an incredible view of the Northern Lights, a walk along the black sanded beaches of Vik (much like Jon Snow and his surprisingly odd crew), the dramatic and dastardly geyser eruptions, and a tour of Jon and Ygritte’s secret thermal love cave. You can even follow in the rocky and treacherous footsteps of Brienne of Tarth and The Hound as they travel through the Eyrie. You’ll start your mission to become the King (or Queen) of the North in Reykjavik, before embarking on a quest to explore Akureyri, and then Vik, before returning home to Reykjavik.
The finer details
If you book one of these incredible Game of Thrones tours, nearly everything will be included. Once you get to the airport, your private transfer will pick you up and take you to your accommodation, before your allocated Game of Thrones expert moves you on from one destination to the next, filling you in with all of the historical and fictional information you could possibly need to make your love for the series even more than it already was (if that’s even possible).
If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, then this is this perfect adventure for you. You can travel to the beautiful locations used in this epic series, and relive your favorite scenes (not too literally though, thankfully). Whether you identify as a Stark or Targaryen, you will be awe-inspired by the natural beauty of these locations, as well as being able to bask in the knowledge you’ve walked in the footsteps of Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen.
