Christian Fleetwood

With the final series of Game of Thrones hitting screens this April, Unforgettable Croatia is offering a private Game of Thrones tour, travelling from Split to Dubrovnik.

George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones is a cultural icon, with The Guardian reporting that the first book has sold 17 million copies worldwide since its publishing in 1996. It was expected to sell little over 5,000 copies.

The written world has since translated into HBO’s most popular show ever made, with Game of Thrones‘ latest season’s finale attracting over 12.3 million views. Ahead of its final season’s release on 14 April, Unforgettable Croatia has released a tour in celebration of the show’s filming legacy in Croatia.

Unforgettable Croatia's tour of the capital takes you into the heart of the Old City of Dubrovnik - Game of Thrones' King's Landing.

The tour begins in Split, moving to Krka National Park, and ends in the Old City of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Listed city and the setting of Westeros’ King’s Landing.

In Dubrovnik, guests experience an extended private VIP tour with a fully-fledged Game of Thrones expert guide, wandering through its ancient streets.

Unforgettable Croatia’s Game of Thrones tour is priced at $2,250 for 7 nights, including bed and breakfast accommodation, privately guided tours and private transfers throughout.
