What’s Beyond the Wall?
Fans of the HBO show are now going to be able to stay in the frozen North. A Game of Thrones hotel has officially opened its doors complete with dragons, direwolves and White Walkers.
Built in collaboration with HBO, the television network behind the award-winning series, and situated in Finnish Lapland rather than Beyond the Wall, the new hotel at Lapland Hotels SnowVillage has been carved entirely out of ice and snow.
The SnowVillage was designed by professional ice sculptors from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Latvia. The sculptor’s built intricate ice sculptures depicting themes and characters from the gracing the 14 bedrooms and 10 suites: one room, for instance, features an enormous carving of a demonic White Walker looming over the bed.
Sit on the Iron Throne and Sleep beneath a White Walker
There is life-sized iron throne with swords made from crystal ice, a creepy Braavosi Hall of Faces, an ice-breathing dragon and a white walker with glowing blue eyes. There’s also a dragon-shaped ice slide, and an Ice Bar.
For weddings, couples can even choose to get married in an Ice Chapel with furnishings made of ice.
The hotel also lays on a number of activities, including husky- or reindeer-sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and ice sculpting classes.
See the Northern Lights
It’s also an excellent location to catch a glimpse of the elusive Northern Lights, with the SnowVillage offering dedicated snowmobile ‘hunts’ for the phenomenon.
Rooms at the ice hotel start from $200 (£148) a night, with an additional $18 (£15) fee for entry to the SnowVillage.
Bookings are available for stays up to April 8th, 2018.
