Welcome to King's Landing AND the city of Qarth! While these two cities are on two different continents in the hit TV series Game of Thrones, in real life, the filming locations can be found in the very same city: Dubrovnik! So come explore this Croatian pearl at the Adriatic Sea from a new perspective - sea kayaking - while also making the ultimate GoT fan-dream come true! Brace yourselves, adventure is coming!
You'll already start to recognize things at our meeting point at Pile Bay: Fort Lovrjenac. Doesn't ring a bell? What if we told you that this fortress can be seen in King's Landing and doubles as the Red Keep! At our meeting point at the bay, you'll also quickly recognise that it was at exactly this spot that the scenes such as Myrcella's departure for Dorne or the Battle of Blackwater were filmed. This is also where you'll meet your guide who'll give you a short briefing on the safety measures as well as your equipment. Once you're all suited up, it's time to go onto your kayaks. Two people can fit on one kayak, and if you're an uneven number of participants, one lucky paddler will get his very own kayak as the guide usually paddles in his own kayak.
From the Rep Keep, we'll paddle our way to Qarth, also known as Lokrum Island. We'll get off there for 1.5 hours of pure enthusiastic GoT discovery! You'll get to walk around the island with your guide, visit the Benedictine monastery, the so-called Dead Sea (a seawater lake) in which you can even swim and snorkel, the botanical garden and the visitor centre where a replica of the Iron Throne awaits you!
If you're motivated enough, you can take a 25-minute walk to visit the Fort Royal, a fortress built 96 metres above sea level, from which you'll have an amazing view of Dubrovnik and its coastline. So, whether you want to walk around the botanical garden like a Khaleesi, take a stroll through the monastery like a member of the Thirteen or just inform yourself about the island like a mortal - we promise you that you'll have a great time. And you can take our word for it: we always keep our promises, just like a Lannister always pays his debts!
After a whole afternoon full of storytelling, photographing and GoT sightseeing, your guide will take you back to Pile Bay, where our initial meeting point was.
