If you’re wondering beyond the Wall, Iceland is the most desolate and hard-to-reach country in the world. You don’t need to be afraid of White Walkers during your travels, but volcano craters, lava flows, rough roads, avalanches and unpredictable weather conditions can make your job a little difficult. Svínafellsjökull glacier and its nearby Reynisfjara, which hosted the great battle with the White Walkers in the seventh season, will appear even more in the eighth season of the series.
If you are looking for a different option and want to tour Iceland on your own, rent a 4×4 vehicle and schedule your own tour on the Ring Road, which wraps around 1,300 kilometers of circular road throughout Iceland. The ice cap and Vatnajökull Glacier, which you will often see along the way, may create a “I hope White Walker dead end” fear in you.
