Are you a fan of the Game of Thrones series and are planning to visit Finland soon? Well, you should consider a visit to the new Game of Thrones ice hotel. The hotel, which is located in Lapland, the country’s northernmost region, is all about Game of Thrones.
The hotel was created in partnership between HBO Nordic and the hotel company. The village where the hotel is located is less than two hours away from the capital, Helsinki. The hotel includes some of the most popular places and characters in the series.
The hotel has a total of 24 rooms, each designed by professional ice sculptors around the world. The designs include some of the most popular places, including the Iron Throne and the Hall of Faces.
Ice Bar, Designs and More
One of the most impressive designs includes a carving of a white walker, which sits right behind the bed. The giant white walker carving includes the glowing blue eyes. The blue eyes and blue lights under the bed light up the room, which is all ice.
Another room has the map of the Game of Thrones world, with some of the house banners. One of the coolest rooms has the Iron Throne, which is guarded by the strongest and scariest character in the series, The Mountain.
The snow village’s Instagram account has posted several pictures of the hotel. The images show that the hotel even has an ice bar, which is open everyday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The hotel officially opened last month and those interested can now reserve a room, which starts at $200. The hotel will be open until April 30 and according to CNN, only ten of the rooms are suites that you can reserve and stay in.
Prices and Tours
The prices to stay in a room are a bit high for many of us but if you’re visiting Finland and want to see the GoT hotel, you can also pay $17 to enter. There are also guided tours going for a little over $75.
Game of Thrones, the hit series from HBO, will not return until 2019 but no one has stopped talking about what happened in season seven and what could happen in the final episodes. There isn’t an exact release date but what we do know is that there is a long wait ahead and that the eighth season will consist of only six episodes.
