The stunning locations used in the hit TV series Game of Thrones served as the backdrop for a wondrous project in 2018 that combined photographer Lorenz Holder and BMX rider Senad Grosic.

Here is all you need to know:

– Northern Ireland played host to several landmark locations with this particular project two years in the making thanks to German Holder and Austrian Grosic.



– Inspired by the TV show, Holder contacted Grosic about the idea with the Croatian-born rider jumping at the chance to star in places like the Haunted Forest.

– Due to the show’s global popularity, they had to get up early at 4.30am for the 10-day shoot of ‘Riding Thrones’ in order to beat the crowds of tourists.

– They visited fictional Iron Islands, Dorne, Winterfell, the Kingsroad and Dragonstone, set among the actual real locations like Bushmills and the Giant’s Causeway.
