You might want to sleep with Dragonglass under your pillow.It’s hard to believe we've been quoting Ned Stark for nearly seven years, ever since he uttered the now-catchphrase “Winter is coming” in the debut episode of Game of Thrones. In case you missed it, winter is finally here (you don't have to tell us twice). And it seems the White Walkers have chosen Finland as ground zero for world domination.

Lapland Hotels SnowVillage, in collaboration with HBO Nordic, has built a Game of Thrones hotel entirely of snow and ice. Luckily, fans don’t need to sleep at the base of the Wall, but you do have to go beyond the Arctic Circle into Finnish Lapland. Located in Kittilä, an hour-and-a-half flight from Helsinki, the SnowVillage took only a month to build (and they do it every year), but this year's GoT-themed snow suites were designed by professional ice sculptors from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Latvia. And they're kind of incredible.
