This Two-Week Trip to See the Real-Life Westeros Is a 'Game of Thrones' Fan's Dream


The popular HBO series Game of Thrones features a rich world full of complex characters and politics — even distinct languages. Making the sprawling epic come to life is no small feat, and one of the ways the creators have brought the Song of Ice and Fire world to life is by scouting stunning locations around the world to stand in for the fictional places George R. R. Martin created. This journey through Westeros and Slavers Bay will show you some of the gorgeous real-life film locations where iconic scenes were shot.

And if you want to see them in real life, eShores UK has assembled the ultimate vacation for Game of Thrones fans who prefer their vacations in the warmer climes far South of the Wall and across the Narrow Sea. Spanning two weeks in Spain and Croatia, with an optional extension in Morocco, it looks like the perfect way to pay homage to the Seven and also get a little R&R.
