“In March 2019 we did this marvelous trip. For early spring the weather was nice and the landscape beautiful: surrealistic geothermal pools on Reykjanes and snowcapped mountains above the glaciers. Right in time the driver picked us (family of 2 parents and 3 young-adults from the Netherlands) up at the airport. On the way to Hvolsvóllur we visited the geothermal pools of Krýsuvik. A warm welcome at Base Camp Midgard. We absolutely prefer a small family-owned and local-based company instead of a big travel agency/company. Another advantage is the location: much closer to the highlights in the south than a hotel in Reykjavik. Breakfast and dinner (and the drinks at the bar) were fine. A cozy atmosphere with a lot of adventurous people (young or somewhat older).The trip to Pórsmörk with the Ford SuperJeep was great. Due to the driving skills of Christian we crossed various rivers to get as far as possible into the Valley of the Thunder God Thor. We explored by foot the surroundings of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. On the way back to Midgard BaseCamp we visited the Seljálans Falls. The third day we headed to the Sólheimajökull Glacier. A long time ago I climbed various mountains in the Alps, the Andes and the Himalaya but walking on crampons on the glacier and -safely- descending in a crevasse is impressive too. Really worrying is the decline of the glacier in the last decades. A dramatic effect of the global warning. Please show the picture of the sign to D. Trump.The last day –on our way to Reykjavik- we visited the impressive Gullfoss waterfall (thanks to Sigridur Tómasdóttir who ‘saved’ the area), Geysir and the Öxaráfoss waterfall.Summarizing a great trip in just 4 days.”

“My son and I did the Northern Lights Tour. This was a rare chance to spend some time together (he’s a busy father and I’m a retired 71 year old). We wanted something a little different that we could both enjoy and Midgard offered a tour that seemed to suit, couple with more than a hint of adventure. We were not disappointed. Midgard is a family run business and clearly values the personal touch. Our four days were varied, interesting and fun. The sightseeing was ably organised by our driver and guide, Bjarni, who kept us both informed and entertained (he is a classically trained singer, as well!). His border collie, Krea, added to the enjoyment. The highlights for me were the glacier climb and ice field walk and seeing the northern lights (this was facilitated by one of the owners getting out of bed and driving us to the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night to maximise the view). ‘Basecamp’ is funky, functional and the food is excellent. I can’t recommend them more.”

“Midgard managed to give us all a fantastic 4 day Adventure! No small feat, as our company consisted of my Game-of-Thrones-fan Dad at 70, my white-water rafting guide brother and myself who prefer to run only on man-made paths. We were greeted at Keflavik by Bjørg, saw the Reykjanes peninsula and enjoyed a nice hike incl bathing in a hot spring. Thorir was our guide at the glacier the next day, making me feel safe as a first-time ice climber and at the same time impressing the guys who have done this kind of climbing several times before. Third day with Ingvard to “Thorsmork” with the big Jeep, crossing rivers, hiking and not catching a wight like John Snow when we too went to Stakkholtsgja Canyon. Last day we again enjoyed the company of Thorir doing the Golden Circle before being dropped off in Reykjavik. Midgard base camp is really nice with good food, comfy beds and great ambiance.

We all give our best recommendation to Midgard!”

Other Practical InformationNorthern Lights: While we can never guarantee that you’ll see the spectacular Northern Lights because they are weather dependant, you are more likely to see them in our town of Hvolsvöllur than if staying in Reykjavík. When looking at the Northern Lights you want to be in an area of little or no light pollution. That makes our small town of Hvolsvöllur ideal for Northern Lights spotting, you can even watch them while relaxing in the rooftop hot tub at your accommodation at Midgard Base Camp.
