Good news for "Game of Thrones" fans who enjoy freezing their butts off: You can now book a stay at a frigid "Ice Hotel" that even a hardened wildling from the Frostfangs might find a little too chilly.

Game of Thrones will return for its final season next year.

The incredible joint is located in Finnish Lapland which is north of the Arctic circle, and can be reached from the capital, Helsinki, which is a 90-minute flight away. There's a White Walker complete with glowing blue eyes, a Hall of Faces straight out of Braavos, an all-ice Iron Throne, and a Viserion-esque ice dragon that holds court in an ice bar. High-quality thermal sleeping bags are on hand, as well as hot berry juice in the morning, to ensure guests stay toasty as they experience life beyond the Wall.

Although it is advised that the guests should spend a maximum of just one night at the hotel because of the chilling icy conditions, however, there are more warm log cabins present if any guest wishes to prolong their stay duration at the SnowVillage.

The SnowVillage covers the area of about twenty thousand square meters.
