9. From Derry: Game of Thrones and Giant's Causeway Tour
Once you arrive at the meeting point, get acquainted with your guide, who was an extra on Game of Thrones. Depart from Derry and drive westwards through the stunning countryside to Downhill Beach. Here you will find Dragonstone beach where Melisandre burned the Seven Idols for R’hllor the Lord of Light. Then travel to Dunluce Castle for a photo op. This magnificent ruin was used as an establishing shot for Harrenhal in season 3.
Cross Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, which sits 30 meters above the rocks. Please be advised that the walk from the coach park to the Rope Bridge itself is almost 1 kilometer, so expect to walk for 20 minutes to the Rope Bridge, cross the bridge and back again, then walk back to the coach park along spectacular sea cliffs.
Visit Renly’s Camp and the Kingsmoot, the location of the Iron Islands Kingsmoot in season 6 when Euron claimed the Salt Throne from Yara. Stop for lunch at your own expense at a charming guesthouse, restaurant and pub in Ballintoy on the north coast. Afterwards, head to Ballintoy Harbor, the location where Theon came ashore on Pyke Island. Here Theon later rededicated his faith to the "Drowned God", where Ser Davos seeks the help of Salladhor Saan for the Battle of Blackwater Bay, and where Gendry escapes Dragonstone in a rowing boat. This is where your guide opens the trunk of the coach and takes out the Iron Born Reever and Yara costumes, swords, axes, and Greyjoy banners.
Next, you will visit the Giant’s Causeway. This natural wonder is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a geological anomaly of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed in the Paleogene Period, 50-60 million years ago. Please note there is up to 2 kilometers of walking at this location. On the way back, make a photo stop at the Dark Hedges, the haunting avenue of serpentine beech trees through which Arya and Gendry escaped King’s Landing.
