The Land of Always Winter[1] is the northernmost part of Westeros, far beyond the Wall. The Frostfangs separate them from the haunted forest.

The Land of Always Winter is permanently locked in winter and perpetually frozen.[2] Mostly unexplored, it is near the land of Thenn. It is believed that the Others come from this region.

A Game of Thrones

While comatose, Bran Stark has a vision in which he looks past the Wall far to the north. He is frightened after looking deep into the heart of winter, which may be an allusion to the Land of Always Winter.[3]

Quotes

And he looked past the Wall, past endless forests cloaked in snow, past the frozen shore and the great blue-white rivers of ice and the dead plains where nothing grew or lived, to the curtain of light at the end of the world, and then beyond that curtain. He looked deep into the heart of winter, and then he cried out, afraid, and the heat of his tears burned on his cheeks.[3]
