Top Trends

A new form of travel known as “set jetting” is on the rise, thanks to the popularity of certain TV shows. Tour companies cashed in on this trend, offering fans the opportunity to visit the real-life settings of their favorite series.

 

Breaking Bad: New Mexico

Black Tomato, a company based in London, offers a seven-night tour of New Mexico that showcases some of the show’s infamous sets. Fans can visit some well-known locales in Albuquerque such as the restaurant known as Los Pollos Hermanos and Walter White’s house and condo. The trip includes a drive through the desert in a bonafide RV.

 

Game of Thrones: Croatia, Iceland and Ireland

Numerous tour companies created customized trips based on the epic HBO series Game of Thrones. Viator, an online travel company based in San Francisco, offers two-day trips based on the series, one in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the other in Dubrovik, Croatia. Highlights of the Belfast tour include the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her shadow assassin; Dark Hedges where Arya Stark disguises herself as a boy to escape from King’s Landing; and Lordsport Harbour where Theon Greyjoy is forced to return to the Iron Islands. Dubrovnik, Croatia is the real-life location of King’s Landing and the backdrop of many battle scenes.

Black Tomato also offers a much pricier, nine-day tour that encompasses Croatia and Iceland. Travelers can sail like Khaleesi around the Elaphiti Islands with a private skipper. On the last night, they can dine outdoors in true Jon Snow-style, clad in furs and eating at a table carved from glacial ice.
