We took our drone out beyond the Wall (Game of Thrones)

Volare Vid...

Volare Video created this epic drone video of the Sólheimajökull glacier in southern Iceland.  The glacier is situated between two volcanoes and it's part of a larger structure called the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap.  The Mýrdalsjökull glacier was a primary filming location for HBO's TV series Game of Thrones, as the landscape provided the authentic snow and vertical relief they were seeking starting in Season 2.  It stood in as the 'Fist of the First Men' and is where Jon Snow's raiding party first ventured "beyond the wall."

Dragonstone VLOG: Basque Country, Spain

Alex Assen...

Top contributor Alex Assenmacher created this amazing drone VLOG of an area in area of northwestern Spain which was the shooting location for the exterior shots of the mythical castle Dragonstone in the Game of Thrones series on HBO.  San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is a tiny island which is connected to the mainland of the Basque Autonomous Community.  The Dragonstone Castle which sat atop the island in the show was digitally created, but the rest of the scenery was real.

ICELAND. Svinafellsjokull Glacier (Svinafell)


While producers of Game of Thrones relied upon artificial snow for the first season, they looked to genuinely snowy locations like Svinafellsjokull Glacier starting in Season 2, so that they could best capture the beautiful - yet - brutal landscapes of the land Beyond the Wall. Due to it's ideal form for filming harsh frozen scenes for major projects like GoT and 'Batman Begins', this remarkable ice mass, found in Skaftafell National Park, has been nicknamed the 'Hollywood Glacier.'

Northern Ireland


The United Kingdom region known as Northern Ireland was used extensively to film the HBO TV series Game of Thrones.  Examples include the The Dark Hedges in County Antrim (which served as the King's Road, used by Arya Stark to escape the city in Season 1), and Ballintoy Harbour in County Antrim (which stood in as Port of Pyke in Season 2, when Theon Greyjoy returned to the Iron Islands).  These are some of the amazing sights captured by AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Foto-events in his video recapping a trip to Northern Ireland.

The breath of Iceland.....The black beach Reynisfjara and Dyrholaey...

Breath of ...

Breath of Iceland created this stunning aerial view of one of Iceland's famous "black sand beaches."  Reynisfjara is located near the town of Vik, near the south end of the island.  Dyrhólaey (once known as Cape Portland) is a small peninsula jutting into the North Atlantic.  This was the filming location for the fictional spot Eastwatch-by-the-Sea, where Jon Snow lands with Jorah Mormond, and Gendry in Episode 5 of Season 7 of HBO's Game of Thrones.

Exploring Cushendun Caves - Game of Thrones Filming Location


The fascinating Cushendun Caves of County Antrim in Nothern Ireland were formed over the course of 400 million years.  The caves offer unique photo opportunities and beautiful hiking, but have also claimed a bit of attention due to their serving as the 'Stormlands' in Season 2 of HBO's Game of Thrones.  The priestess Melisandre is escorted here by Davos Seaworth (at the behest of Stannis Baratheon), only to give birth shortly thereafter to a ominous shadow figure.  See the famous caves from above in this drone video by photasma.
