Game of Thrones themed hotel opens in Finland Winter is coming

Designed by professional ice sculptors from around the globe, each room features an ice figure related to the popular TV show, including a recreation of Braavos' Hall of Faces and a replica of the Iron Throne, guarded by Gregor "The Mountain" Clean.

Lapland Hotels' annual SnowVillage has begun accepting guests for 2018, with the roughly 44 million pounds of snow and 770,000 pounds of ice being used to pay tribute to the HBO series.

Two sculptures stand out: A White Walker with blue-lit eyes and a dragon-shaped ice slide.

The incredible joint is located in Finnish Lapland which is north of the Arctic circle, and can be reached from the capital, Helsinki, which is a 90-minute flight away.

For those who aren't bothered by the cold, you can visit the hotel for about £13 and if you want to stay for the night, you'll have to fork out around £147 which is the starting price.

Although it's recommended that guests stay at the hotel for a maximum of one night due to the icy conditions, there are warm log cabins available for those who wish to extend their stay in the SnowVillage.

Each year, around 20 million kilos of snow and 350 000 kilos of crystal clear natural ice are used to build the Lapland Hotels SnowVillage, almost 200km above the Arctic Circle in Kittilä. There's also a cinema, chapel, arctic bar, and a restaurant at the SnowVillage.

At the Snow Village there are 30 standard rooms and suites, all made of ice and snow.

The entrance to the village itself will cost about $18, but the rooms of the hotel start at around $200.
