What is "Tour of Thrones"?
Tour of Thrones is a travel website for fans of HBO's Game of Thrones®, and the medieval genre. Simply put, we support, promote, and market "Game of Thrones Tourism" in and around Northern Ireland, Spain, Croatia, Iceland and across the country. Our website is operated by Alpventures® Tours, a 20+ year veteran in the travel industry. We have partnered with the top local Tour Operators and businesses to offer leading travel services at discounted rates.

Who actually runs these Tours?
Our Tours are run by the best operators in the business, and our entertaining Tour Guides have actually worked on set and will give you the inside scoop and exclusive behind-the-scenes stories. Alpventures® Tour of Thrones and our local partners are not affiliated with HBO Studios, and we are in no way affiliated with any other movie or television production company, their subsidiaries or studios.

Do we see cast members on the Tours?
You never know! Even though filming for Game of Thrones takes place in the areas we feature on our Tours, at this time shooting has wrapped and we are all anxiously awaiting the premiere of the eighth and final season. There is no guarantee you will see cast or crew members; however our local Tour Guides have worked as extras on the show, and we offer Guided Tours that include special guests and speakers - we post updates about these exclusive Tours on this website.

Do you visit the actual filming sets?
We only visit places where past filming has taken place - and there are plenty! In fact, there are too many actual sites to mention. All of our Game of Thrones Tours are packed with tons of filming locations and sites, which our Guides fully explain in detail along with showing photos and stills from the show. Every Tour is full of information and we always strive to "set the scene" for our guests at all locations. Please note that we do not visit current sets and we discourage trying to get close to them. Why? Because the studios have a hard enough time doing their job and keeping it secret - they do not need curious fans to interfere with their production.

Can I see these places on my own?
Of course. Many of the sites we feature on our Game of Thrones Tours are accessible to the public - some are not. If you are planning your own trip to Northern Ireland, Croatia, Spain or Iceland, our website is a good place to start. Browse and book our local Game of Thrones Tours - check out our longer, more comprehensive Game of Thrones Adventure Tours that take in more sites than you could possibly visit on your own - all saving you time and money in Europe. Keep in mind, there's lots to see! The best way to make the most of your valuable time and money is to take one of our popular Guided Tours. Let us do the work while you enjoy the sites and entertaining commentary of our expert Guides.

Castle Ward Estate has been home to "Winterfell Castle" in Game of Thrones since the beginning - it all started here, in the courtyard... the Stark Family all together; so young and innocent. Hear all the great stories of filming within its walls on our Guided Tours!
