Duration: 11 hours
New to Trip Advisor experiences since 20th October, we are the largest Game of Thrones tour company in the world and this is our Dublin Winterfell Locations Trek visiting locations south of Belfast. This tour is a fully immersive and inclusive experience. Our guides have worked as extras on Game of Thrones seasons 1 - 8. We trek you through an old growth forest (3kms), along along a lake shore path at the original Winterfell castle (3kms) and into a crumbling, ruined medieval abbey. We use tablet clips and VFX breakdowns to show you how each scene was made at each location. We have Stark cloaks, swords and banners for everybody to use at no extra cost. Our tours are the real experience!
Be warned! This tour is called a 'trek' for a good reason. We take you on two long - but very beautiful! - walks. The morning walk (3kms) is through a forest to get to the location where the Night's Watch find dismembered wildling bodies in the snow in the opening prologue scene and the bridge where the Stark's find a dead direwolf and her pups. The afternoon walk (3kms) at Castle Ward, the Winterfell location in season 1, is less strenuous. Our final stop, at Inch Abbey, doesn't involve much walking, but does involve lots of swords! It's where Robb Stark became King in the North. So if you or your partner have mobility issues or you'd rather not trek, we'd recommend you don't do this tour. If you are happy to walk 6kms during the day to get to the most remote and beautiful Game of Thrones ® locations, this tour is for you!
