Serious Game of Thrones viewers no longer have to wait until 2019 to see White Walkers march on Winterfell. A new pop-up in Lainio, Finland, is offering die-hard fans the chance to spend a night at an entire ice hotel dedicated to the show.

Lapland Hotels' annual SnowVillage has begun accepting guests for 2018, with the roughly 44 million pounds of snow and 770,000 pounds of ice being used to pay tribute to the HBO series. Guests get the chance to sit on the Night King's version of the Iron Throne, stroll through the Braavosi Hall of Faces and sleep beneath the glowing eyes of a White Walker carved into the ceiling. More dedicated GOT couples can even get married in the hotel's ice chapel.

But just like a stay with the Starks, you'll want to bundle up if you choose to book a room: The temperature inside the hotel's 30 suites hovers at just below freezing. So grab your fuzziest Night's Watch cape and your secret dragonglass stash. However, if you do end up realizing you're not fit for a Westerosi winter, Lapland also offers real cabins close by that aren't made out of, you know, ice.

Rooms start at roughly $200 a night, with the hotel remaining open through April 8.
