  • There's a Game of Thrones hotel and it looks absolutely amazing

Lapland Hotels SnowVillage - not to be confused with ICEHOTEL, Sweden - and HBO Nordic became unlikely allies to build a Game of Thrones themed hotel.

Lucky for you, a hotel in Finland has just the thing to cure your Thrones withdrawal - a Game of Thrones-themed ice hotel! Each room contains a famous ice sculpture of the most popular and watched TV show based on the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin.

The magical location is found in the resort of Kittilä, which is 125 miles above the Arctic Circle and around 90 minutes from the country's southern capital, Helsinki. There's also an icy Iron Throne, a dragon guardian at the ice bar, and a dragon-shaped ice slide.

A hotel forged from snow and ice has opened for fans of "Game of Thrones" in Finland where winter is at its peak.

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.

The village is open for visitors daily and has a cinema, a chapel, an arctic bar that serves drinks in glasses carved from ice, and a restaurant with frozen dining furniture and a menu featuring reindeer steak.
