It’s time to rejoice! After waiting for what feels like an eternity, Game Of Thrones fans finally know when the final season is going to air. The wait has been excruciatingly long as we had watched the season 7 finale on 27th August 2017! Now, we will have to wait for another 3 months to watch the season 8 premiere as HBO has just announced that Game Of Thrones Season 8 premieres on 14th April and they even released a teaser along with it!
We know that season 8 will have 6 feature-length episodes and now that the first episode is releasing on 14th April, it means that the season 8 finale will air on 19th May and I am not ready to accept that in just 4 months our favourite show will end forever, which makes me feel sad.
Watching the teaser titled “Crypts of Winterfell” gave me chills as we see Jon, Sansa and Arya walking in the Crypts underneath Winterfell and they find out that their statues are also present in the crypts, which means that they are dead and at that moment, a cold mist starts spreading in the crypts, indicating that the White Walkers have arrived in Winterfell and the teaser ends with the Game Of Thrones Season 8 premiere date.
Take a look at the teaser below:

“Winter is Coming” and it’s truly and officially coming on April 14. But, ahead of Game of Thrones Season 8, Finland welcomes you to a spooky Game of Thrones-themed ice hotel – make sure you are well equipped with dragonglass!
Located in Finnish Lapland near Kittilä, this hotel has been opened up by Lapland Hotels Snowvillage in collaboration with HBO Nordic. This hotel was built in just five weeks and this year, all the suites of this hotel were designed by sculptors from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland.
Equipped with a total of 16 suites – each one with a different sculpture on its wall both cosy as well as a spooky sleep with a warmer temperature of 23 degrees as compared to outside where the average temperature is nearly 10 degrees.
A bunch of other images are down here like the first one which reveals an icy tunnel entrance to the main hall batched up a number of house banners from Westeros – Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tully, and others.
An icy feast table which will remind you of Cersei Lannister’s small council – make sure they serve you some good ale and the Hound’s f*cking chickens.
Next, are the skull of Balerion the Dread, which you probably saw in Season 7 under the Red Keep and a replica of the Sept of Baelor which sadly exists no more – all thanks to the Mad Queen Cersei Lannister!
The entry fee for the snow hotel is $20 and each suite will cost you around $550 and the entries will remain open through April 21, 2019. So, how many of you would like to visit this amazing Game of Thrones-themed ice hotel of Finland? Tell us in the comments.
