Game of Thrones Fans Travel to the North and Beyond the Wall in Iceland
June 26, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsJune 26, 2014 - Relive the settings of the Game of Thrones HBO series with a tour of northern Iceland, available through EuropeToo, an Isramworld company. This tour package showcases the aura and beauty of Akureyri, aka the capital of North Iceland.
On this four day tour, travelers arrive in Akureyri prior to experiencing the Game of Thrones tour. After a day of leisure, the excursion ends with an afternoon flight to Reykjavik, Iceland. Day one involves the arrival to Iceland, allowing tourists to get acclimated to the local landscape. Day two of the tour takes the group into Akureyri. The capital of North Iceland features plenty to do including museums, shopping, and art galleries, as well as snow skiing along Iceland's popular snowcapped peaks.
Enjoy a walking tour through Akureyri that includes the private Art and Design tour. This exclusive tour includes personal interaction with Icelandic designers, as well as a visit to a local artisan's work space. While in northern Iceland, experience the Myvatn Nature Baths; entrance fees to the baths is included in the tour.
Day three is filled with novel magic as the story and setting of the Song of Ice and Fire comes to life. Become one with the environment where George R.R. Martin's world famous and award winning series, the Game of Thrones, comes to life for the silver screen. See firsthand the locales of several filming locations for season three of the GOT series.
Fans of Jon Snow, Samwell Tarly, Lord Commander Mormont, and the wildlings unite on this tour. Stand in awe at the locations where the Night's Watchmen were viciously attacked by White Walkers. While tourists can rest assured that none of the walking dead are stalking the scene with their crystal blue eyes, it is quite the experience to be where the magic happened.
Go to the great expanse of land where the Free Folk including red headed Ygritte and the crow Jon Snow stalk across the land lead by Mance Rayder to attack the Wall. Feel the emotional connection to such a monumental movement, while listening for giants, shadow cats, Wights, and wargs in the wind. Seeing a crow while on location here would be the icing on the proverbial cake.
One of the most romantic moments of season three in the Game of Thrones HBO series took place when Ygritte and Jon Snow consummated their love. Snow, the bastard of Lord Stark of the North, is a member of the Night's Watch, having taking the vows of celibacy. Always the stalwart, Jon Snow finds it easier to turn his heart and soul over to Ygritte now that he has become a turncoat in the eyes of the wildlings and Free Folk.
In the now famous cave scene, viewers experience the true passion in a lover's form that is highly anticipated in both the Game of Thrones television series, as well as the novel series A Song of Fire and Ice. Visit the very cave where the magic happened, revealing to all what Ygritte and Jon Snow had hidden between their many layers of furs. During the Game of Thrones tour of Northern Iceland, learn all about the harsh environment that was first home to the ancient Vikings and now made famous by the Game of Thrones.
