What to do now that Game of Thrones is over…

The White Walkers are gone, and summer is (finally) coming. Prepare the fleet and set sail for a culinary Game of Thrones-inspired adventure.

Now that Game of Thrones has come to a fiery end, it’s time to find your next Westeros fix (and forget about that finale). 

This summer, relive all the debauchery, scandals and highlights of the eight seasons by visiting the real-life destinations and tasting authentic dishes worthy of a feast in the Great Hall. From Winterfell to Dorne, here’s where you need to go, no dragon needed.

Grab your wine goblets, it’s time to eat and drink your way around the Seven (Six?) Kingdoms!

 

Go on a sunset picnic and hike overlooking the (former) Red Keep

Take in the view of King’s Landing, otherwise known as Dubrovnik, Croatia. Luckily, this real life terracotta-hued city was spared from Drogon’s fire and the city walls are still very much intact.

Host Alexandra will take you on a personal guided walk as you reach one of Dubrovnik’s best kept secrets – a beautiful secluded lookout point with panoramic views over the Old Town. Snack on local specialties, Croatian charcuterie and homemade rosehip lemonade as you watch the sun sink over the Adriatic Sea.

Tuck into a hearty wildling meal south of the Wall

An dinner worthy of the Night’s Watch! You can just imagine Jon and Tormund digging into this traditional Icelandic feast in Reykjavik. A primarily seafood menu, you’ll find regional delights like wind-dried fish, shark and brennivin, Borganese-style lamb and even Atlantic Wolf-fish (get it?)

Taste the Moroccan menu Daenerys would free slaves for

Before she went crazy with power, good ol’ Dany was liberating Slaver’s Bay, no doubt so she could enjoy a victory feast with host Edwina in Marrakech. Edwina, an Australian who now runs a Marrakech cooking school, will prepare an aromatic dinner featuring delicacies like butterflied sardines on a marmalade bed, deconstructed saffron lemon chicken tagine, and rosewater meringues over chocolate ganache with a toffee tendril.

Feel the might of a dragon-smoked banquet in Braavos

Discover the secrets of Girona, Spain, the real life version of Braavos, Oldtown and King’s Landing. Host Carlos will take you on a guided tour, where you can see sights like Girona Cathedral, aka the Great Sept of Baelor (Shame! Shame! Shame!), Pujada de Sant Domenec, where Arya runs away from the Waif, and Sant Pere de Galligants which was used as the citadel library. 

After you’ve snapped photos where Cersei, Queen Margaery and Samwell once stood, head back to Carlos’ home for a typical Spanish tasting menu and wine.

Tour the markets and watch a Flamenco show around House Martell

Fast forward to the future, and today you can visit this historic city on a personalize 4-hour walking tour with stops at local tapas taverns and wine bars, before finishing with a foot-stomping Flamenco show!
