Our coach tours go beyond driving and sightseeing. We take you on two long locations treks (4 miles of walking in total!). The morning trek is from Winterfell to one of Walder Frey’s Twins, past Robb’s Camp in the Riverlands and on to where Brienne confronted three Stark soldiers. The afternoon trek is into Tollymore Forest, to the bridge where the Starks found a dead direwolf and her pups.
The most important visit is to Winterfell where an adventure sports company, based in the courtyard of Winterfell, offers Stark family cloaks, gambesons, peascods and LARP swords for those who wish to truly immerse themselves in the mood of the North.
