You Can Stay At This Incredible Game Of Thrones Ice Village - And Even Get Married There

You Can Stay At This Incredible Game Of Thrones Ice Village - And Even Get Married There

As if the myriad Game of Thrones merchandise - including themed sex toys - wasn't enough, fans can now experience the show in an immersive - and fairly spectacular - themed village and hotel.

Just in time for the start of the eighth season in April, winter is well and truly here for the Snow Village, near the Finnish resort of Levi. The village includes a hotel, restaurants, bars and ice rides. This might just be as close as you can get to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

With HBO Nordic involved in its creation, it was never going to be underwhelming - and with 40,000 cubic metres of snow, and almost 400,000 kg of ice, the village took 50 construction workers a month to build.

If you fancy yourself a bit of Kit Harington, there are life size statues to enjoy, as well as a frozen version of Braavos' Hall of Faces - including a full size iron throne.

Still not enough GoT to satisfy your level of superfan? If your partner loves it is much as you, you can even get married in the village's very own chapel. Around 50 couples tie the knot here every winter season.

Sculptors from Russia, Poland, Latvia and Ukraine all had a part in the design of the ten rooms. Be warned though - staying here does carry a risk, with visitors advised to only stay one night, as temperatures can hit minus 5 degrees inside the rooms. Oh, and the beds are made of ice. So if you did get married here, it might not be the red hot night of passion you were hoping for.

You do get a high quality thermal sleeping bag though, so you'll be all nice and warm...kind of.

Of course, living like Jon Snow doesn't come cheap - the hotel will cost a minimum of £370 per night.

If you'd prefer to experience the show in less extreme conditions, you can look forward to the final series before it hits our screens on April 14th - 15th. Thanks to the time difference you can make a full night of it when it is aired on Sky Atlantic.

HBO has promised that season eight will be its biggest, best and most shocking yet - and of course we're expecting loads of CGI action, massive bloodbaths and some sort of conclusion.

It will also feature the biggest battle in TV history, according to producers.

Kit Harington, who is the bookies favourite to be the next Batman, recently revealed he let his wife in on the ending, which he described as "groundbreaking'.

Meaning there's now two reasons to be jealous of her.
