Croatia & Iceland

Game of Thrones

Croatia & Iceland

$17800 per person

You’ve crammed the first six seasons into one viewing marathon, sneered at King Joffrey, and cowered behind the sofa when the white walkers appeared, and flipped out when John Snow awoke. Now travel to the Game of Thrones set destinations that have captivated audiences across the globe. On this nine night holiday fit for a Khaleesi, the would be me, visit the locations that have helped bring Westeros and Essos to life, from the windswept mountains of Iceland to the sun-kissed shores of the Adriatic Sea. We‘ll go to the terracotta-hued city of King’s Landing  to the contrasting wild landscapes north of The Wall with the savvy guides who helped scout for locations for the show.

CITY OF KINGS

Fly into Dubrovnik, one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful walled fortresses, and spend the next four nights at the Villa Dubrovnik overlooking the UNESCO site and fictional capital of the Seven Kingdoms; King’s Landing.
After a good night’s rest we’ll be met by our guide for our private tour of the city dubbed ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’. One of the most iconic and notorious locations from the series, we’ll be taken to Srd Hiil to soak in the beautiful panoramic views of the old city set against the blue waters and surrounding islands. Next up, we’ll reach giddy heights as we climb the city walls, an uninterrupted flow of ramparts almost 2 km in length. Pass the Pile Gate and relive the stories of how King Robert Baratheon fought his way to power, and how the Targaryen family were exiled from the land. For a last stop on our tour of King’s Landing we’ll stop to take in the magnificent views of ‘Blackwater Bay’, the site of the bloody battle when Stannis Baratheon tried to take the Iron Throne from King Joffrey. Head back to our hotel and catch the sunset before a king-sized feast of incredible seafood...and dessert.

TAKE TO THE SEAS

The following morning we’ll be met by our guide and private skipper outside the hotel for a short boat transfer to Lokrum Island, a mysterious island home to many legends and myths. Here we’ll be given a private tour of the Benedictine Monastery, used by the show as the chilling house of the Undying in the city of Qarth. We’ll then sail onto the small seaside village of Trsteno, home to the 500-year old Asian plane-trees. This site is home to the Trsteno Arboretum, used as the gardens of King’s Landing palace and as a Red Keep – home of the kings of the Seven Kingdoms.
From here we set sail around the Elafiti Islands – a breathtaking archipelago of thirteen islands. These gem-like islands of the Adriatic are a site of unique beauty, covered in woodland and with white, rocky outcrops that enhance the deep blue of the sea. Learn how to sail like Ser Jorah around the Isles’ many coves, hidden bays, sandy beaches and fishing villages, where we can stop off to sunbathe (naked?) and swim in the crystal-clear waters. Stop off for lunch at one of the island’s local seafood restaurants before heading back to our hotel. Spend our last two days relaxing at our hotel soaking in the rays overlooking the ocean and indulging our senses at the luxurious spa.

WINTER IS COMING

From the coast of Croatia, fly north to the icy expanse of Iceland. A land of volcanoes, glaciers and otherworldly landscapes, we can see why Iceland is the perfect setting for the treacherous land North of the Wall. For the next five nights, you’ll travel around the island taking in the powerful views and natural wonders that set the scene for the menacing north of the Seven Kingdoms.
Head south from the airport with our guide to one of my favourite spots on the island; Hotel Ranga. The following day along with our guide who helped scout these locations for the show, we’ll explore the south coast of Iceland and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Head to Skaftafell National Park where we’ll trek up the magnificent Vatnajökull glacier, the largest icecap in the world outside the arctic regions, and where Jon Snow walked North of the Wall. Take our time to marvel at the sweeping vistas, dominated by sparkling white glaciers, jagged grey-blue mountains and seemingly endless black sand beaches.
Next up its the bubbling Geysir hot springs and thundering waterfalls of Þingvellir National Park in the Golden Circle. This dramatic volcanic area is one of the locations for the series’ fourth season and is set on top of a vast, geothermal field dotted with multi-coloured mud pools, hissing steam vents, hot and cold springs, and primitive plants. For a final thrill head to Hvítá river, to speed through the spectacular natural surroundings in a river-jet boat trip down whitewater rapids.

GOING NORTH OF THE WALL

Today we’ll literally head over the wall to Lake Mývatn, located in the heart of north-east Iceland about 105 km south of the Arctic Circle. This epic region is the filming location for The Wall itself, where the wildings roam. Our guide will take us on a trek around the surreal lava craters and cave formations, where we can view the sulphur streaked mountains in the distance. After our hike take a dip in the natural baths to soak our muscles and take in the views.
From the wilds of the north, we’ll head back south to explore the Dettifoss waterfall before heading back to civilization in the uber-chic city of Reykjavik for a night staying at the boutique bolthole, Sandhotel. Enjoy the steaming powers of the Blue Lagoon and enjoy a few of our top pick of the city’s restaurants and after dark haunts before catching our flight home.

Location

Rest & relaxation is the order of the day. As is a fair amount for the thrill seeker.

VILLA DUBROVNIK. Rest & relaxation is the order of the day at the Villa Dubrovnik. A highly modern hotel which glitters with sleek clean lines and a bright and airy interior whilst being cloaked in history and almost six decades of tradition. Located on the cliffs above beautiful Dubrovnik, you’d be hard pushed to find a corner of this Villa not home to an outstanding view across the sparkling blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. All the Villa’s bars and restaurants sit on the cliff edges and peer longingly out to the horizon.
LOCATION The hotel is a 20-minute walk from the sun-soaked walls of the Old Town, but why walk when you can sail over the glistening turquoise waters in a Venetian taxi boat. Walk along the well-preserved original city walls and explore the historic buildings peppered through the town. Pay a visit to the four magnificent fortresses at the corners of the town before discovering the secret little bar hanging on to the outside of the city walls with nothing beneath you but water. Search for the small opening in the wall to find it…
OUR ROOM All Villa Dubrovnik’s rooms come with stunning sea views out over to the picturesque island of Lokrum and the Old Town walls. Stylish, modern design features give the rooms a stark elegance while also providing ultimate comfort and relaxation. Enjoy breakfast on the balcony or curl up with a good book as ships roll by below the cliffs.
WHY WE LIKE IT The ‘wine book’. Villa Dubrovnik has such an extensive range of wines, they cannot be placed in a mere list, they sit proudly in the ‘wine book’. Maybe the best book in the world. Indulge your inner connoisseur, then sit back and watch the world go by from the magnificent Skybar, which is exactly as amazing as it sounds.
HOTEL RANGA This luxurious country lodge, straddling a river bulging with jumping salmon, Hotel Rangá gives you an abundance of fresh food, incredible views and if you are a bit of a thrill seeker, how about a private helicopter ride over the glaciers, taking off right from the hotels back garden.
LOCATION In the beautiful Icelandic countryside, just a couple of hours from Reykjavik airport, is Hotel Rangá. Set amongst the southern landscapes of this dramatic country, Rangá is in the perfect location for the best sightings of the elusive yet equally spectacular Northern lights.
OUR ROOM With each suite kitted out in a unique style that reflects one of the seven continents, the combination of luxury, comfort and exclusivity will appeal to you: our favourite discerning traveller. Nothing will wake you up from your peaceful slumber. Nothing but the dedication of the staff who will make sure you don’t miss the wonder of the Northern Lights with a personal wake-up call. Now how’s that for service.
WHY WE LOVE IT Delectable cuisine at Hotel Rangá is modern Nordic with a twist of Mediterranean guaranteeing you fresh and flavoursome bursts with every mouthful. We recommend salmon with sweet potato and white chocolate puree, champagne foam and fresh strawberries, an unlikely but exquisite and surprisingly mouth-watering combination. Oh and the Northern Lights wake up service is pretty special too.
SAND HOTEL  This luxurious boutique hotel in the heart of Reykjavik provides the perfect springboard for you to explore this exciting and pulsating city whilst also offering the perfect abode to rest your head and enjoy a bit of downtime. Sandhotel is a perfect combination of ages, as the past meets the future in this refurbished historic building in the heart of Laugavegur. The 53 rooms place a strong emphasis on atmosphere and design with the exquisite interiors making this one of the most attractive hotels in the city.
LOCATION Perfectly located along the high street of Laugavegur, Sandhotel provides guests with the perfect opportunity to discover and enjoy the vibrant cultural life that Reykjavik has to offer. The hotel even arms you with a cell phone for you to be able to navigate your way around this winter wonderland of a city. Finally, only a 10-minute drive away from the airport and a short distance from some of Iceland’s natural marvels, this hotel is the perfect package for your adventure to Iceland.
OUR ROOM With an array of 53 rooms at Sandhotel, from single rooms to the Sandhotel suite, this luxurious boutique thrives on its perfection. Interior designer Gudbjorg Magnusdottir is the architect behind the elegant interior of the hotel. With his uncompromising attention to detail, you can expect nothing short of perfection, from the marble bathrooms to the wooden oak floors. Finally, all the rooms have an Art Deco quality, respecting the history of the building, with walls filled with modern design but also contemporary artwork making each room very individual.
WHY WE LIKE IT At Black Tomato we love a good slice of cake and there is no better place for it than in one of Iceland’s best bakeries, Sandholt Bakery. Established in 1920, the bakery has a preserved heritage with the Sandhotel community delighting its guests with a mouthwatering treat at the end of long days of exploration in one of the most captivating European capitals.
