Die-hard Game of Thrones no longer need to dream visiting its mythical kingdoms, as a new GOT-themed ice hotel just opened in Lapland, Finland.

Constructed in conjunction with HBO, this new hotel at Lapland Hotels SnowVillage has been carved entirely out of ice and snow. Themes and characters from the popular series have been carved out of intricate ice sculptures, like an enormous carving of a demonic White Walker looming over the bed, to a dragon-shaped ice slide, an icy replica of the Iron Throne, a reconstruction of the Braavosi Hall of Faces and many more. In addition, the theme is continued with drinks being served in carved-ice glasses rather than golden goblets, while dining is provided by an adjacent restaurant.

With the rooms designed by sculptors from Russia, Poland, Latvia and Ukraine, the temperatures throughout the ice hotel is kept at a cool minus five degrees celsius, and it’s recommended for guests to stay in the approximately 30 ice rooms available for just one night. The hotel also provides a variety of activities such as husky or reindeer-sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and ice sculpting classes.

If you’re looking for a short getaway, bookings are only available for stay up to Sunday, April 8, 2018.
