This ice hotel in Finland is the ideal holiday destination for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans

Winter is coming...

An ice hotel in Finland has been transformed to take on a ‘Game of Thrones’ theme, and it’s a must-visit for fans of the HBO fantasy show.

The Lapland Hotels SnowVillage in Western Finland has teamed up with HBO Nordic to create an icy labyrinth dedicated to the fantasy behemoth.

In a complex spanning over 20,000 metres, Thrones fans can kick back in hotel rooms, a restaurant, a bar, and a wedding chapel that are all made from a staggering 20 million kilos of snow and 350,000 kilos of natural ice.

There’s an impressive attention to detail too, with some of the hotel rooms boasting a huge White Walkers sculpture that is positioned eerily over the beds.

The hotel also boasts a selection of impressive ice sculptures too, offering unique representations of characters including the Mountain. Check out the highlights below.

Although it’s an impressive sight, the hotel will only be open until April, with tickets for entry costing €15 (£13) with rooms starting at $264 (£233).

Otherwise, Game of Thrones will return in 2019, as officially announced by HBO last week.

“The epic fantasy series Game of Thrones will return for its six-episode, eighth and final season in 2019”, HBO confirmed in a statement.

“David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik will be the directors for the new season. Writers for the new season are David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman and Dave Hill.
