For the fans of "Game of Thrones," an immersion to the show would be the greatest thing that they could experience in their life. Luckily, there's a tour in Northern Ireland that could give the same feels.

In an article published in Travel and Leisure, a castle in Northern Ireland is hosting tours that recreate the most memorable parts of the hit HBO series. Fans of "Game of Thrones" would be offered to wear some medieval garb and explore the different filming locations of the show.

Upon arriving at the famous Winterfell Castle in Northern Ireland, guests and enthusiasts of "Game of Thrones" will grab some medieval equipment and clothes and explore the grounds and make stops at different filming locations.

But wearing garments and taking weapons from the show is not the only thing that they could do. While touring the property in the Northern Ireland castle, guests could come upon as extras from the "Game of Thrones." Not only that, guests could even start battling in live re-enactments of the epic fights featured in the show.

But what about the fans of "Game of Thrones" that would want to discover more locations besides the home of the Starks? In an article published by The Times, the tour wold also includes stops to see the filming locations of the Lannister camp in the Northern Island.

This location is a forest that was transformed into the area known as the "north of the wall" for the fans of "Game of Thrones". The tree where Robb Stark and Talisa were secretly wed was also located in this area.

Guests who are fans of "Game of Thrones" can choose to embark on a cycling tour of 20 different filming locations. They could learn how to do archery or take a boat tour around the property and view the filming locations from the water. 

Fans of "Game of Thrones" also has the option to add on falconry demonstration, a medieval feast, and overnight glamping extension and an opportunity to meet the two dire wolves used in the show. The castle could also be used for bachelor or bachelorette parties.

Group tours start at about £29 or about $38. For those who want to experience "Game of Thrones" as in-depth as possible could choose a private tour, which will set visitors back $500.
