‘Game of Thrones’ Hotel Made Entirely Of Ice Erected In Finland
The night is dark and full of room service.
Even though the cardinal rule for surviving in Westeros is to not go north of the Wall, Game of Thrones superfans can now get a similar experience by booking a night at this Finland hotel, constructed entirely of ice and themed around the monster HBO series.
Teaming up with HBO Nordic, Lapland Hotels has unveiled its newest “SnowVillage” creation, where those willing to brave chilling temperatures (less than 30 degrees Fahrenheit per night) and terrifying White Walkers above their bed can stay, drink and dine like true members of the Night’s Watch. And unlike those who take the vow, guests can even get married at the mindbogglingly impressive locale.
Lapland’s website reveals that the annual SnowVillage is crafted using “20 million kilos of snow and 350 thousand kilos of ice,” bringing together artists from Russia, Poland, Latvia and Ukraine to adorn the hotel. Guests this year are treated to dragons, not unlike Daenerys Targaryen’s beloved children on the show, an icy Iron Throne and even an eerie recreation of the Hall of Faces.
You can book a room until April 8, which is a lot earlier than Game of Thrones‘ final season return in 2019. So, if you’re fandom rises above the rest — and you happen to have the cold tolerance of a wildling — make your reservations, while you can.
The most remarkable part of this is that this entire hotel was crafted in a matter of months while we’ve been waiting for years for George R.R. Martin to finish the damn books.
