Visit the Game of Thrones Ice Hotel Before it Melts Away

12 January 2018

Now fans of the drama series can get the ultimate Westeros experience - at an unbelievable snow village in Lapland, Finland.

Some of the rooms and sculptures in this year's exhibition were inspired by Game of Thrones, including a Hall of Faces, an Ice Throne, a map of Westeros, and a dragon ice slide.

The intricate design comes as part of Lapland Hotels' SnowVillage in collaboration with HBO Nordic who have created the shoutout to the fantasy drama, in Finland.

The SnowVillage is in Kittilä, a town located in Finnish Lapland that's north of the Arctic Circle and about a 90-minute flight from the Finnish capital of Helsinki.

Temperatures reach - 5 C (23 F) inside, so high-quality thermal sleeping bags are on hand to keep guests warm, as well as a hot berry juice in the morning. The hotel comprises 24 rooms, 10 of which are available to overnight guests. Guests who want warmer accommodation can stay in separate log cabins on site.

Every year, SnowVillage molds more than 20 million kilograms of snow and 350,000 kilograms of ice to build a distinctive, one-year-only magical getaway.

The village is open for visitors daily and has a cinema, a chapel, an arctic bar that serves drinks in glasses carved from ice, and a restaurant with frozen dining furniture and a menu featuring reindeer steak.

The complex of the Lapland Hotels SnowVillage in Western Finland spans over 20,000 meters welcoming guests to experience the real "Game of Thrones" world.

Entry costs $18, while a guided tour is around $78 for a group of up to 30 people.

The hotel bar is the most surreal work of art-a bona fide White Walker hang that looks like a place Jon Snow might drop into looking for someone "yay high, bright blue eyes. lots of horns".
