Great news Game of Thrones fans—White Walkers and dragons have arrived in the one of the coolest hotels to open this winter season: The Games of Thrones-themed Lapland Hotels SnowVillage. Created in collaboration with HBO Nordic, this temporary themed hotel offers stunningly sculpted rooms made almost entirely of snow and ice . Those hoping for a visit to the Seven Kingdoms will need to hurry—the hotel will only be around until April 8, 2018. The Games of Throne-themed hotel is located in Finland’s Kittilä, about 90 minutes away from Helsinki. The hotel comprises 24 rooms, 10 of which are available to overnight guests. International ice artists were invited to bring the hotel to life and the undeniable highlight is the massive carving of a demonic White Walker looming over a bed. There’s also an icy Iron Throne, a dragon guardian at the ice bar, and a dragon-shaped ice slide.

Room bookings at the ice hotel start at $200 and entry to the SnowVillage is $18. + Lapland Hotels SnowVillage Via CNN Travel Images via Lapland Hotels SnowVillage
