GAME OF THRONES Ice Hotel Lets You Experience Long Night Level Cold


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.

Otherwise, Game of Thrones will return in 2019, as officially announced by HBO last week. Those hoping for a visit to the Seven Kingdoms will need to hurry-the hotel will only be around until April 8, 2018.

This edition of the hotel comprises 14 standard rooms and 10 suites, each with ice beds and sleeping bags along with a hot berry juice in the morning.

Via Entertainment Weekly, Conde Naste Traveler reports that the Game of Thrones hotel was built over the course of a single month by professional ice sculptors hailing from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Latvia. It includes the recreation of the Braavos' Hall of Faces and a copy of the Iron Throne, guarded by "The Mountain"-Gregor Clegane".

A villainous White Walker - complete with blue light-up eyes - is one of the stand-out sculptures and is the dragon-shaped ice slide.

Temperatures are up to negative five centigrade insides. However, it is recommended that non-white walker guests spend only one night in the ice rooms and spend the rest of their holidays in warmer cabins nearby.

Guests will also receive a guided tour inside the SnowVillage, a buffet breakfast in the log restaurant, and a diploma to commemorate their stay.

The SnowVillage covers the area of about twenty thousand square meters.

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. Entry to the SnowVillage is €15, while room rates start at €165.
