Top 7 Game of Thrones filming locations to visit by boat

1 of 7 1/7


Fictional setting: North of the Wall, Wildling territory 

True location: Various spots across Iceland was used to portray the icy stretches past the Wall at the border of the Seven Kingdoms. Many scenes were filmed on the Vatnajökull glacier at the heart of the island and at the Thingvellir National Park. Fans will recognise the glacial planes of Höfðabrekka as the 'Frostfang Mountains' from season two as well as Grjótagjá, a spring cave near Lake Mývatn that played host to Jon Snow and Ygritte in season three.

How to visit: Moor up in Reykjavík just outside of the old harbour, which is capable of berthing some of the world's largest yachts —  in fact,126 metre Octopus was been spotted here both in 2010 and 2015. There are a huge number of tours and excursions that can be organised from Reykjavík, so be sure to select your favourite spots to visit in advance.

To visit more northern locations such as the Grjótagjá cave, moor up at Akureyri, where 119 metre motor yacht A was spotted in May 2016.
