Game of Thrones indisputably has some of the most picturesque scenes ever captured in an American television series (or for that matter any tv show across the world). Many have surely felt like visiting the Seven Kingdoms only for the stunning scenery on several occasions. So here we discover these precious locations from GoT that you can visit too!
1. Spain: Spain is a place that one cannot overlook while discussing Game of Thrones locations. San Juan de Gaztelugatxe in Bermeo, Basque Country is a place that features the famous stone bridge. Numerous places in Seville have played a huge role in the filming of the show. Extremadura is also a place that has become a popular tourist spot for all the beautiful reasons.

Getting to Spain from India: The best time to travel to Spain is said to be the autumn season. The main airports in Spain are in Barcelona and Madrid, where you can land from the major cities in India like Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore. To visit nearby places or your favourite GoT location, you can travel by the public and private transport systems.
2. Iceland: Want to visit the home of the White Walkers? Iceland is the place that was the abode of the dead. But it will make you feel as alive as ever. Iceland was first featured in Game of Thrones in Season 2 and we cannot get enough of the place ever since.
Getting to Iceland from India: You can travel to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland by the frequent flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. North Iceland is a must visit for the GoT fan in you! By the way, a fun fact here – did you know the mighty Gregor Clegane aka “The Mountain” (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) from Game Of Thrones is also from Reykjavik Iceland.
3. Croatia: These places in the mystical Croatia should definitely feature on your GoT itinerary: St. Dominika Street, Bokar Fortress, Lokrum Island, Lovrijenac Fortress and Diocletian’s Palace. The King’s Landing is the place that earned Croatia the name of the Land of the Iron Throne.
Getting to Croatia from India: Flights operate from India to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia from major Indian cities. You can travel to the other places from Zagreb using public or private transport. Enjoy the Mediterranean climate best in summer. If you indeed decide to go to Croatia (especially Zagreb), then I must recommend going to the Upper Town (aka Gornji Grad). I was there on a family trip around last year’s Christmas, and we had an amazing time. The people are super nice and Indians are generally respected and welcomed. Above is an image we took, while we were there.
