“A massive thank you to Anna, Björg and Hildur for going out of your way to collaborate with Southcoast to accommodate our tour to Landmanalauger. The communication was excellent and we were picked up directly from our guesthouse, on time and with a fantastic guide.”

“We were a party of four adults and one child who ended up on an unplanned Landmannalaugar superjeep tour with Midgard. We had originally booked with another company who didn't turn up as arranged. When we contacted them they called in Midgard to help and they were with us in about half an hour and provided a superb day.

Our guide was Atti who was professional, informative and good company. It was slightly restrictive having a five year old on such a long outing but nothing phased Atti and we managed to see the varied and beautiful terrain and have a good soak in the river. On other days we also popped into their new building Base Camp which is great and provided a warm welcome, a good lunch and some helpful tips.”
