Consider taking a trip to delightful Dorne, which you non-Seven Kingdom natives might know as Spain.
The LA Times’ Rosemary McClure brings an exciting travel opportunity to our attention, one that will tickle the fancy of “Game of Thrones” enthusiasts who have been taken with the latest season’s locales.
Offered by Zicasso, travelers can book a GoT-inspired trip that highlights the Spanish destinations that have infused season five with such amazing beauty.
As McClure writes, tourists who book the trip will see the real-life places known as “Madrid, Seville, Osuna and Granada.”
But those who have been following along in the complicated web of intrigue, deception and possible all-out war will know that each doubles as a location where the previously breathing Oberyn Martell once resided on the hit HBO show.
Previously we took a look at HBO’s documentary that highlighted just one day in the production of the show, which also featured Spanish locations:
If seeing Spain and checking off some pop culture locations is your thing, perhaps the Zicasso trip is worth your time and money.
The website states, “From the majestic Water Gardens of Sunspear to the grand palace of the Martell’s, your soon-to-be favorite moments from season five of Game of Thrones are here waiting for you to discover in Spain.”
Prices start at $1,899 per person, which is for the “four star” package. This includes a seven-night trip with breakfast included as well as “travel materials,” which the website lists as things like maps and vouchers.
This is hardly the only GoT-themed tour of Europe out there, because the show has created quite the cavalcade of exhausting itineraries.
With HBO drawing millions into the Westerosi way, the chances are good that if a location features in a scene you will be able to find a tour group that is eager to capitalize on the fact.
This just means those vivid images splashing across the screen are available to the average viewer with a plane ticket and a plan.
It definitely beats traveling the Narrow Sea in a crate.
