Winter is Coming, or rather should we say, a voyage through Westeros is coming? This August, thronies around the world will be able to sail along the Dalmatian coast in Croatia in an all-exclusive cruise inspired by the smashing hit HBO series, Game of Thrones. This announcement comes ahead of the show’s much-awaited prequel–House of the Dragon.
The mammoth series, known to have been filmed in Northern Ireland has a substantial panoramic backing of a serene Croatia. Setting up a location tour, Sail Croatia Cruise is organizing a seven-day itinerary on a small luxury ship, which includes visiting mythical filming locations at Diocletian’s Palace to retrace the infamous Walk of Shame and embark on walking expeditions to Red Keep and Blackwater Bay, among other iconic locations. Fans will also have the chance to stroll through the Game of Thrones Museum for a thrilling experience with original props, costumes and life-size figures. For the photo frenzy, travellers may seize the opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne in Dubrovnik. Unlike on-screen, this won’t cause a battle!
The week-long voyage commences on 20 August and docks on 27 August, with check-in and check-out points, both being in Split. In a perfect medley of adventure, exploration and amusement, passengers onboard will have multiple options such as kayaking, wine tastings and regular stops to swim in the Adriatic Sea.
The booking cost starts at £939 (Approximately INR 77,000), inclusive of daily breakfast, three-course lunch, tour manager, ferry rides, walking tours and a special Captain’s dinner evening, immersed in traditional Croatian cuisine with local entertainment.
