Here’s what’s inside:
The hotel is made entirely of snow and ice. It’s kept between 23° and 28° F. SnowVillage builds a new ice hotel each year. This year, everything’s “Game of Thrones” themed!
Janne Pasma, Operating Manager of SnowVillage:
“Everything just matches with our concept. So that winter is coming but that winter is again here. And all the themes and pictures of the ‘Game of Thrones’ fit perfectly to our SnowVillage.”
Enter through a glittery tunnel. The Ice Throne welcomes you, while The Mountain stands guard.
“My first vision was to create the Iron Throne from ice with The Mountain next to it. That was also the first thing we created inside the SnowVillage.”
An ice dragon overlooks the ice bar. The Wall of Faces watches guests as they booze. Each of the 24 rooms has a “Game of Thrones” character overhead. Sleep under a White Walker or a House Tully’s silver trout sigil. Rooms worthy of a lord or lady of Westeros. Seven Hells! There’s even an ice slide. There’s also a screening room.
A partnership between SnowVillage and HBO Nordic brought the hotel to life. Construction began in November 2017. They used 44 million pounds of snow and carved everything by hand. The ice hotel will melt away come April.
