For years, Game of Thrones lit up our screens with epic tales of power, betrayal and dragons. Now, you can experience the thrill of cruising to the series’ real-world filming locations.
Sail Croatia’s new eight-day cruise promises to relive all the fantasy and drama of Game of Thrones. It’s a must for fans of the TV series who love a little adventure. Aboard this luxury small ship, you’ll visit some of the most famous filming locations whilst sailing the Dalmatian coast from Split to Dubrovnik.
Journey through Game of Thrones
Your journey through Westeros begins in Split, Croatia. You’ll enjoy two blissful days of swimming and exploring the charming harbourside towns of Makarska and Korcula.
On day three, you’ll dock at the medieval city of Dubrovnik before embarking on a Game of Thrones walking tour. The city is a treasure trove of filming locations, with the Red Keep, Blackwater Bay and the Walk of Shame all within easy walking distance.
After exploring the city on foot, you’ll be ferried across to Lokrum Island, also known as the city of Qarth. Then, channel your inner Joffrey as you sit on the original Iron Throne, gifted to the city after filming.
The next two days of the voyage will be spent between Mljet, with its salt lakes and national park, and Hvar. Dive into Hvar’s crystal-clear waters before climbing to Fortica for a dragon’s eye view of the harbour.
In Stari Grad, the oldest town in Croatia, you’ll sample some of the country’s best wines. Then sail back to Split to explore the impressive dedicated Game of Thrones museum before a visit to the nearby Klis Fortress, the filming location for the City of Meereen.
Throughout the cruise, there is plenty of time to venture out and explore each location. With several optional excursions including rafting, kayaking, cycling and wine tasting. Plus daily breakfast and a three-course lunch prepared by an onboard chef. The modern ship features wide open decks, a jacuzzi, a large dining salon and a swimming platform.
Sail Croatia’s Game of Thrones cruise coincides with the release of House of the Dragon, the prequel to the blockbuster series, hitting TV screens on 20 August 2022.
