Cox & Kings, The Americas


Game of Thrones may have ended, but the idyllic destinations portrayed as Westeros still exist in real life. While the show might not have been suitable for all ages and interests, your house can see the Seven (now Six) Kingdoms of Westeros with the assistance of Cox & Kings — pretty fitting in name alone. Travel together on luxury bespoke tours and expertly curated excursions through Cox and King’s Luxury Small Group Journeys.

Bring your crew to King’s Landing, actually beautiful Croatia, along the A Journey Through Croatia tour. Visit the ruins and natural beauty of Zagreb and Split, with stops at the Plitvice Lakes National Park, Diocletian’s Palace and the island of Hvar. Explore the island and learn more about the region’s culture through dining, shopping and taking in the real-life, but hard-to-believe beauty of the sites.

Meanwhile, in Iceland, the home of the Wildlings, your family can visit on a nine-day tour: Icelandic Wilderness Adventure. This Custom Luxury Glamping Experience in Iceland lets fans see beyond the wall, actually Reykjavik and Hvolsvollur, with visits to Thrihnukagigur Volcano, waterfalls in the countryside and sweeping views of glaciers and otherworldly scenery. Sleep in far more luxurious accommodations than the Wildlings, but with all the same scenery and incredibly starry night sky.

Travel in the steps of the Mother of Dragons as she ventured from Essos, actually some iconic stops in Morocco. Take the Jewels of Morocco: From Cities, to Desert to Atlas Mountains tour and  adventure through the Atlas Mountains, Rabat, Meknes, Fez, Volubilis, Marrakech, Skoura and the Sahara Desert. For something a bit more intimate and a great way to step into the less hustle-and-bustle side of the region, try Majestic Morocco, visiting gardens and wine estates.

See where some of the series’ plotting went down at the majestic Water Gardens of Dorne — or Spain, as we know it. Visit with the kids on the Andalusia Highlights journey with stops in Seville, Granada and Cordoba. Learn about the region’s Moorish history while taking in the scenery from some of your favorite episodes.

Maybe you didn’t watch the show or just couldn’t watch it with the kids, but the award-winning show wasn’t just memorable for the writing, directing and acting — the setting was so captivating, it inspired a slew of tours. Treat yourselves and visit the landscape of Westeros with all the 5-star treatment you didn’t see in the show.
