Don’t Forget to Pack Your Lightsaber: This Company Created Two ‘Star Wars’ Inspired Vacation Tours
Calling all Jedis: We just found the getaway of your dreams, no hyperdrive required. In honor of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, luxury travel service Zicasso announced two new vacation itineraries for exploring the dramatic filming locations of Star Wars. And don’t worry, they’re in this galaxy. Here are the two trips you can book:
Ireland and the Last Jedi Encounter: A Star Wars-Inspired Tour
The Irish tour spans eight days with stops in Killarney, Galway, Donegal and Dublin, including spending the night at the secret hotel where cast and crew stayed while filming The Force Awakens. Visitors will also have the opportunity to pour themselves a pint from a Guinness tap that was specially installed just for Mark Hamill (aptly named Luke’s Tap) and chat with the locals of Donegal, many of whom ended up as extras in the film.
Perhaps the most exciting part of the tour, however, takes place on the secluded island of Skellig Michael, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Fans will immediately recognize the stunning island as the place where Rey finally tracks down Luke Skywalker. Lightsaber handoffs and dramatic hooded Snapchat reenactments are highly encouraged.
Croatia and the Last Jedi Encounter: A Star Wars-Inspired Tour
Tour number two takes fans on an epic nine-day adventure through Dubrovnik, Croatia, which was used as the casino city of Canto Bight on the planet of Cantonica, aka home of the super-wise Maz Kanata, played by Lupita Nyong’o. (Psst: The city also serves as King’s Landing in Game of Thrones.)
A walking tour through the city blends the historical highlights and the futuristic world of the upcoming film. Oh, and of course no trip to Dubrovnik would be complete without a stop at Croatia’s first underwater winery.
