The Seven Kingdoms and the the stories that unfold in this magical region through the epic series Game of Thrones can now be seen in person.
Fans of the series adapted from author George RR Martin’s best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire (HarperCollins) can now tour the fantasy world that is shot across multiple countries and World Heritage Sites.
Travel aggregrator liligo.com now offers an itinerary for series fans to explore the show’s filming locations, from Northern Ireland where the series’ head studios are situated and home of Iron Throne, Morocco’s ancient city made of clay known as Ait Benhaddou (Yunkai), which is a Unesco World Heritage Site, to The Alcazar in Spain’s Seville.
Other regions include Croatia, Iceland, Malta, and Scotland – where most of the cast is from.

The series also captures the beauty of other World Heritage Sites, such as Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland’s national park known as Alþingi was once situated, the Palace of Diocletian built by the Roman Empire in Split, Croatia, and Minčeta Tower – also in Croatia.

In exploring all the locations that form part of the itinerary, globetrotting fans will fork out an estimated $2 185 (R28 158), and will clock a bit over three days in the air flying from one location to the next.
Enthusiasts will need to arrange for their own accommodation, as the itinerary is limited to travel costs, and does not include actual tours around the destinations and places of interest – which are offered by local tour companies in certain areas.
