Let our Game of Thrones expert guide you around the iconic sites where some of this popular HBO series was filmed. The Myvatn area was the location chosen for the Beyond the Wall scenes in the 3rd season. Filming took place in 2012 and The Traveling Viking was lucky enough to guide some of the crew around the area. After Kit Harington (aka Jon Snow) broke his ankle in July, filming in Iceland did not begin until late November. This gave the crew a chance to experience the snow, frost and blizzards of an Icelandic winter and gave the actors a real sense of life Beyond the Wall.
Beyond the Wall is home to the Wildlings or Free Folk under the rule of their king Mance Rayder. Under his command the Wildlings are gathering an army. The White Walkers however are on the move, threatening both the Seven Kingdoms and the land of the Free Folk. Jon Snow must join the Wildling army to try to discover Mance Rayders plans.
Not only will you see where Game of Thrones was filmed, you also get to see where J.R Tolkien got his inspiration for the magical world of Lord of the Rings and find out about his strong connections to Iceland.
The first stop on this tour is at the beautiful waterfall Gošafoss. Many Icelanders consider this fall to be a symbol of Icelandic Christianity and you can find out more about this during the tour.
As well as visiting the location sites from Game of Thrones this tour also stops at many places of interest, such as Dimmuborgir (dark castles), Grjotagja (underground caves), Hverir (bubbling mud pits and steam vents), ending the tour at The Myvatn Nature Baths. Entrance fee to the baths is included in the tour price along with some special souvenirs of the tour.
Beware the winter is coming!
