Are you a big fan of Game of Thrones? Have you ever wanted to get a chance to visit one of its filming locations? Do you want free cloaks to come with your tour? Well, guess what, that's actually a thing. Game of Thrones Tours has what you seek. The company takes you on two treks to locations from Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland via Belfast and Dublin.

"Our coach tours go beyond driving and sightseeing. We take you on two long locations treks (4 miles of walking in total!). The morning trek is from Winterfell to one of Walder Frey's Twins, past Robb's Camp in the Riverlands and on to where Brienne confronted three Stark soldiers. The afternoon trek is into Tollymore Forest, to the bridge where the Starks found a dead direwolf and her pups."

And they're right about it not just being an ordinary tour because if you really want to get into the spirit, they provide a little extra immersion for free.

"The most important visit is to Winterfell. We provide Stark cloaks, shields, swords and helms at no extra cost, for those who wish to truly immerse themselves in the mood of the North."

Free cloaks and swords you say? I can get down with that. If you're going to be vacationing in Ireland anytime soon, then this walking tour should definitely be part of your itinerary. Just don't throw out "winter is coming" because I'm pretty sure they've heard it a million times by now. Or maybe they encourage it. I'd test the waters on that. Oh, they also advise wearing comfortable shoes. Comfortable shoes are very important in the north.
