Game of Thrones filming locations:
If you want to go North in Game of Thrones style, you really need to book a flight to Iceland. We did a lovely stopover stay of 4 days with Icelandair in 2016 and managed to discover a couple of Thrones locations as well as some sceneries from a few famous movies.
Unfortunately, the gods of weather weren't very friendly during our stay which made things a lot more complicated, so we're hoping to go again some day and confirm some of the rumored filming locations.
The effect Game of Thrones has had on Iceland's tourism makes it the perfect example of the power of TV and film tourism:
"Ever since Game of Thrones first featured Iceland in season two, glimpses of the country’s frozen landscapes have lured mega-fans from around the world to the little island in the north Atlantic. The “Game of Thrones effect” has been cited as a key factor behind the remarkable growth in annual visitors to Iceland, from 566,000 in 2011, the year it premiered, to more than 1 million in 2015." —The Telegraph
