In the meantime, the icy hotel SnowVillage has built an authentic substitution. Made out of 20 million kilogrammes of snow and 350,000kg of crystal clear, natural ice the project rises every year near Kittilä, Finland. And for its 17th season, it is Game of Thrones themed.

The temporary hotel has about 30 rooms, all made of ice and snow. It features an Ice Restaurant and Ice Bar, as well as the Ice Chapel where couples can get married.

A group of sculptors from Russia, Poland, Latvia and Ukraine designed the Game of Thrones themed hotel while the organisers cooperated with HBO Nordic in its production.

“You can find a life-sized iron throne with swords, a scary Braavosi Hall of Faces and a white walker with glowing blue eyes,” the hotels says on its website.

The SnowVillage is located in the Western part of Finnish Lapland, in close proximity of Ylläs and Levi ski-resorts, and is easily reachable from the airport of Kittilä.

The area is 200km north of the Arctic Circle and the chilly weather makes it the right place for a magical world made from snow and ice.

“The annual construction of the SnowVillage begins when the temperature drops to about ten degrees below zero during late October or early November,” the site says.

“Sleeping, dining and visiting the SnowVillage is an enjoyable experience when wearing suitable winter clothing as the temperature of SnowVillage remains at a comfortable -2C and -5C degrees, regardless of the outdoor temperature.”
