When it comes to incredible filming locations, Game of Thrones has them in spades, meaning intrepid travellers can easily go north of The Wall, bunker down in Winterfell or traverse King’s Landing IRL.
But Finnish bloggers Tiia Ohman and Satu Walden, of Fangirl Quest, have taken things a literal step further, inserting some of the series’ best-known scenes into their picturesque real-world locations.
On their travels, they’ve visited the UK‘s Tollymore Forest Park, specifically, the bridge where Ned Stark and co first discovered the Direwolves that would become their beloved pets; parts of Northern Ireland through which eternal badass Brienne of Tarth marched a then-imprisoned Jamie Lannister; and Iceland‘s Thingvellir National Park, where Ygritte (RIP) first uttered one of the show’s most-quoted lines (“You know nothing, Jon Snow”).
Fangirl Quest’s unique project isn’t exclusive to Game of Thrones, though the cult series does feature heavily. You can keep up with their travels between episodes on Instagram.
