“Game of Thrones” (GoT) may not come back until 2019, but here’s something to tide you over while waiting for the final season of the show. The catch: you’d have to fly all the way to Finland, where you’ll find a Game of Thrones hotel made of ice. Here’s what you can expect from the so-called Snow Village:

You’re not a true-blue GoT fan if you don’t dream of having your own Iron Throne to sit on and admire every minute at home. At Snow Village, you’ll find an ice replica of the throne everyone’s after at Westeros. You can sit on it for photo ops; that is if your butt can handle the cold. An ice version of Mountain is there to guard you too.

Step into the world of the Faceless Men via the Game of Thrones hotel’s Braavos Hall of Faces. Just like in the show, you’ll see several faces up on the wall. There’s a Game of Thrones writing on the other side too.

Snow-built rooms with different ice sculptures

Winter is definitely here in this Game of Thrones hotel as each nook and cranny is made of ice, including the beds. The rooms have different designs such as a White Walker towering over your head, a lion, etc. They were designed by sculptors from Russia, Poland, Latvia, and Ukraine.

Want to warm up or further chill out with drinks? The hotel’s Ice Bar got you covered, where you’ll find a huge dragon standing behind the counter.

If you get hungry, there’s the Ice Restaurant complete with crystal chairs and tables where you can enjoy a feast a la Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch.

Ice Chapel

Want to have a GoT-themed wedding? The hotel’s Ice Chapel can serve as your venue; just pray hard that it won’t turn out the way the Red Wedding did.

Winterfell Map

If you ever run out of things to do, just stare at the hotel’s Winterfell Map, which we’re sure you probably memorize by now if you’re a religious viewer of the HBO show.

The Game of Thrones hotel is a partnership of Lapland Hotels and HBO Nordic. Reservations are accepted until April 8. Check out the video of the place below by Eyecatcher.
