Game of Thrones ice hotel in Finland offers fantasy fans chance to venture north of the wall

FOR Game of Thrones fans, it’s the ultimate holiday destination.

The impressive SnowVillage in Finland has teamed up with HBO Nordic to create a winter wonderland that’s sure to delight fans of the hit series.

A whopping 20 million kilos of snow and 350 000 kilos of natural ice are used to build the spectacular venue which changes in shape, size and theme each year.

This year, the entire hotel is inspired by George RR Martin’s fantasy saga – with rooms designed by sculptors from Russia, Poland, Latvia and Ukraine.

Temperatures in the SnowVillage can dip as low as minus 5C, so guests are provided with thermal sleeping bags and a hot berry juice to warm up in the morning.
