Discover the land beyond the Wall with Iceland Game of Thrones tour from Akureyri, tour the snowy landscape of Iceland, and bath in the Myvatn Nature Baths!
- Visit the astonishing film locations showcased in Game of Thrones Season 3
- Visit the areas where Night’s Watch men, including Samwell Tarly and Lord Commander Mormont, are attacked by the White Walkers
- Walk the land that Jon Snow, Ygritte and the Free Folk cross to reach the Wall
This is your chance to visit the Land Beyond the Wall and see it brought to life with tales of the Seven Kingdoms by local guide Jon Thor Benediktsson, who also guided the Game of Thrones crew on set during filming in this area.
Today you will be entering the other worldly landscapes of Lake Myvatn where the scenes for North of the Wall were filmed.
Now it becomes apparent why the Game of Thrones production crew were drawn to this area as the majestic Waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss, greets you. According to the Icelandic Sagas the waterfall draws its name from Þorgeir of Ljosavatn throwing his statues of the heathen gods into the falls when Iceland converted to Christianity in the year 1000.
Your next stop will be the magical places were season 3 of Game of Thrones were filmed. Here you can try to relive the action in the locations seen in the series. No, you will hopefully not encounter any White Walkers, but with Iceland‘s rich folklore let the story telling guide boost your imagination with tales of trolls and Hidden People alongside curious facts about what happened behind the scenes of Games of Thrones.
After a day of beautiful waterfalls, volcanoes, unusual lava rock formations, steaming hot springs, bubbling mud pools and mysterious landscape you’ll end the day with a splash at Myvatn Nature Baths. Not a filming location for Game of Thrones, but the calming waters relax you while imagining being surrounded by other Free Folk.
With a bit of luck the Northern Lights will entertain you during your soak, right before returning to Akureyri.
