WINTER HAS (FINALLY) ARRIVED AND HAS SET UP BASE IN A HOTEL IN FINLAND.

Lapland Hotels SnowVillage, in a collaboration with HBO Nordic, has built an INSANE Game of Thrones hotel made of entirely snow and ice.

Located in Kittilä, an hour-and-a-half flight from Helsinki, the hotel is located in a custom-built SnowVillage and is equipped with everything from a Braavosi Hall of Faces, an Ice Throne (dah!) with an Ice Mountain standing guard, and a dragon-shaped ice slide.

The hotel has 24-rooms which has their own unique sculptures crafter into the ice walls.

Feel like having some serious nightmares? How about stay in the room with a a giant White Walker-esque snow demon watching over you as you sleep.

The hotel recommends just one night stay in the igloo (obviously due to the freezing nature of the rooms), and then enjoy some warmth in the nearby cabins.

Oh and by the way, feeling romantic? You can get married here. 

“We have approximately 40 to 50 weddings per season,” says Jari Porri, the destination manager of Lapland Hotels SnowVillage in an interview with Conde Nast Traveller. “You don't necessarily need to stay overnight to enjoy the village. There are plenty of activities here for visitors including an ice sculpture workshop, reindeer rides, as well as husky and snowmobile safaris.” 

The SnowVillage also has an ice movie theatre which showcases a film about how it was built, a restaurant and an ice bar.

Get us on the next plan outta here, this place sounds AMAZING!
