After 6 seasons of fantasy adventures, HBO's hit series Game of Thrones has taken us on a journey through the incredible imagination of author George R.R. Martin. We've seen the freezing heights of the Wall, the sunny cities of Slaver's Bay and everywhere in between.

Maybe you have an urge to visit King's Landing after seeing the characters spend so much time there? You can! It turns out the show's incredible locations are almost all from a handful of countries: Northern Ireland and Iceland for the North, and Croatia and Spain for the South.

If you want to plan your vacation in Westeros, start with these 21 gorgeous places.

1. Winterfell - Castle Ward, Northern Ireland

Winterfell has changed over the ears - did you notice? The pilot episode was filmed in Doune Castle - where Ivanhoe was also filmed - but filming later moved to Castle Ward.

2. Winterfell forests - Tollymore Forest Park, Northern Ireland

If you're looking for direwolf puppies, start here. This is where Ned Stark's children found theirs.

3. The Kingsroad - Ireland's Dark Hedges

This stunning tree-lined road is a favorite for photographers, even though it's reportedly haunted by a ghost called the Grey Lady.

4. Dragonstone Beach - Downhill Strand, Northern Ireland

Remember when Stannis Baratheon burned the Seven and lifted up his flaming sword? This popular beach was the location.

5. Qarth - Lokrum, Croatia

To stand in for the finest house in "the Queen of Cities," the show's producers used this small island's Benedictine Monastery, founded in 1023.

6. The House of the Undying - Minceta Tower, Croatia

Thus landmark got a CGI extension when Daenarys's dragons were stolen and taken here.

7. Yunkai and Pentos - Aït Benhaddou, Morocco
