Below are 6 film locations of Game of Thrones that can be reached by boat. A real bucket list for fans of the show!
Dubrovnik, Croatia (King’s Landing)
As if there were not enough reasons to sail to Croatia, there is also the fact that so many scenes from Game of Thrones are filmed there. The Old Town of Dubrovnik first appeared on the screen as “King’s Landing” during the second season of Game of Thrones. The center of Dubrovnik is very mystical and beautiful because the buildings are ancient. A part of Game of Thrones was filmed in the city.

Girona, Spain (Braavos)
A large part of Arya Stark’s storyline in the series was filmed in Girona, Spain. Seen as the little brother of Barcelona, Girona is a beautiful place, because of the colorful houses on the river and the narrow medieval streets that are used as the streets of Braavos.
Furthermore, the extraordinary 90 steps of the Girona Cathedral, also known as the Santa Maria de Girona Cathedral, were also used in a scene to represent the stairs of the Great Sept of Baelor in the city of King’s Landing.
In Spain, there are many options for renting a boat. There is nothing better than exploring these areas than to sail with a yacht at your own pace.
Klis, Croatia (Meereen)
The storyline of Daenerys was primarily developed in the large city of Meereen, which she and her army conquered in Season 4.
While many of the city’s indoor shots were filmed in nearby Split, the outdoor shots were filmed at the fortress of Klis. This is a medieval castle that towers over the small Croatian town of Klis.

Ballintoy Harbor, Ireland (the Iron Islands)
Ballintoy Haven was the setting for a number of scenes that were located in the Iron Islands. One of the most striking was the return of Theon to the Iron Islands, as well as some areas around Dragonstone. It was here that Theon met his sister Yara for the first time. A classic Game of Thrones sailing destination!
Downhill Beach, Ireland (Dragonstone)
Downhill Beach served as the movie location for Dragonstone. Lady Melisandre made the sacrifice for the seven gods of Westeros here. The immediately recognizable Mussenden temple overlooking the beach is prominent in many scenes. A real must for a Game of Thrones Sailing Destinations bucket list.
Doune Castle, Scotland (Winterfell)
Think back to the first episode when Ned Stark was still present in the series. We see the enormous exterior of Winterfell in all its glory as King Robert Baratheon, and his family came to House Stark with a proposal. Luckily for all Game of Thrones fans and sailing lovers, Scotland has a sailing holiday for everyone, from novice sailors to experienced skippers.
