Game of Thrones - Iceland : Beyond The Wall – 5 days
Day 1: Reykjavik
Welcome to the Land of Fire and Ice! On your own, transfer to Reykjavik by FlyBus Plus transfers. Check in at the hotel and rest of the day is at leisure. Explore this beautiful city on your own. Dinner on own and overnight.
Day 2: Getting Closer – Akureyri
After a hearty breakfast your journey takes you to the Reykjavik domestic airport where you'll board a 60-minute flight to the beautiful town of Akureyri.
Located only 100 kilometers (62 miles) from the Arctic Circle, the mountains in the area are often capped with snow year round, and in the winter they offer some of the best skiing in the country. For the next two nights you'll be staying in Akureyri.
Day 3: Enter Free Folk's Territory
Breakfast. Today you will be entering the other worldly landscapes of Lake Myvatn where the scenes for "North of the Wall" were filmed.
As the majestic Waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss, greets you, it quickly becomes apparent why the Game of Thrones production crew were drawn to this area. According to the Icelandic Sagas, the waterfall draws its name from Thorgeir 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 where several scenes for Game of Thrones were filmed. Here you can try to relive the action in the locations seen in the series.
Hopefully you won't encounter any White Walkers, but Iceland's rich folklore lets the storytelling guide boost your imagination with tales of trolls and Hidden People alongside curious facts from 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 landscapes, you'll end the day with a splash at the Myvatn Nature Baths. While not a filming location for Game of Thrones, the calming waters will still relax you while you imagine being surrounded by other Free Folk.
Day 4: Return to Reykjavik
Breakfast. Morning flight to Reykjavik and return to your Reykjavik hotel. The afternoon is free for you to explore the city and its surroundings.
