And achieve a high degree of freedom and flexibility as you journey in complete luxury and privacy. Our Destination Experts talk about the best places for self-drive trips and how a pre-determined itinerary can help.

Game of Thrones Travel: Four countries to get your GOT fix this summer!

The Game may have ended but fans can continue to experience the magic at popular Game of Thrones destinations. This summer, GOT destinations are the hottest buzz and our Destination Experts have compiled the most iconic spots to relive the memories.

Northern Ireland
Popular For: Immersive GOT Experiences

Home to Belfast’s Titanic Studios, where much of the show was shot, Northern Ireland has woven GOT right into its travel tales. The Game of Thrones’ touring exhibition is in Belfast till September and offers fans the chance to step inside Westeros and the lands beyond. See authentic props, costumes and set decorations; and relive the story with an array of immersive environments, interactives, and multimedia content. Or go on location to places like the Tollymore Forest Park, where the White Walkers began their march; and the iconic Castle Ward, where much of Winterfell was shot. Or take a scenic ride along Dark Hedges Road, popular as Kingsroad.

Croatia
Popular For: King’s Landing

Perhaps one of the most popular GOT destinations, Croatia has been topping the charts of must-visit countries for the last few years. From the notorious beheading to the Purple Wedding and Cersei’s walk of shame, a GOT walk around Dubrovnik should be at the top of any fan’s bucket list. You may also find the legendary Iron Throne in town, which you can sit atop for a once-in-a-lifetime photo opp. For a more off-beat interlude, try the picturesque Sibenik, which sits on the Adriatic Coast and provided the setting for Braavos, where Arya Stark was trained by the Faceless Man. At the Cathedral of St. James, decorated with 71 sculpted faces, you will feel that you are right inside the Hall of Faces with Arya.

Spain
Popular For: GOT Architecture

Spain’s spectacular Roman ruins, Moorish fortresses and medieval churches provided the ideal setting for some of the show’s most popular buildings. In Seville, you will find Dorne’s palace at Royal Alcazar, one of the country’s most beautiful royal palaces. The Girona Cathedral is instantly recognizable as The Great Sept of Baelor in King's Landing; while the town was also the setting for the streets of Braavos. The lesser-known Trujillo Castle in Caceres, Extremadura sits atop a hill and acted as the famed Casterly Rock, the ancestral stronghold of the Lannisters. And the Castle of Zafra in Guadalajara was the place where one of the most pivotal scenes of the show was shot – the spectacular reveal of Jon Snow’s parentage at the Tower of Joy in Dorne.

Iceland
Popular For: Lands Beyond the Wall

From volcanic glaciers to 1000-year old icebergs; bubbling hot springs to frozen lagoons; Iceland is truly a land wrought with fire and ice. Its awe-inspiring natural wonders have played host to many of GOT’s most popular scenes. And there are plenty of tours available to catch the highlights. Travel to the Grjotagja cave, where Jon Snow and Ygritte had their first romantic encounter. The historic Thingvellir National Park was the setting for many scenes, including the Bloody Gate which guards the Vale of Arryn. Svinafellsjokull Glacier inside Skaftafell National Park is where most of the scenes north of the wall were shot. And the abandoned Magheramorne Quarry is an immediate throwback to Castle Black, as well as the setting for the Battle Beyond the Wall.

After our representative delivers the Ferrari to your hotel, drive to the pristine shores of Lake Como, about 2 hours away. Stop for lunch at a local trattoria, before riding further to Cernobbio, where you can spend the night inside a plush 16th-century villa with a fascinating history.
