We had a private fully customized tour through Midgard for just our family, over the course of 6 full days.

I can’t say enough about how amazing this company is. Communication prior to the trip was excellent, with a perfect itinerary based on our wishes, designed with almost no alterations. Modifications that were desired were fully accommodated and easily done.

This trip was quite adventurous, with lots of hiking, and stops along the routes for each day to include sights that the tourists do not normally see.

All of the guides are local and absolutely excellent. We had four of them, and each was very funny, very friendly, and very knowledgeable about Icelandic history, geology, and out of the way things to see. They, in a word, were hands down amazing.

We are very vested travelers that only do private tours internationally, so believe me when I say that if you are looking for a private tour in Iceland, this is your company. Worth every penny, and not one flaw.

The only tiny thing I would suggest to Midgard would be to please have water on hand in all vehicles. Running out of water on all day excursions was a little bit of an issue.

Midgard Adventures is one of the best companies for private touring in any country, anywhere!

We’ve made this hike few weeks ago and it was one of the greatest experience we’ve ever had. The landscapes, the trip and the scenarios were breathtaking. Special mention to our guide Stephan, very careful and skilled, he created a special atmosphere and told us many interesting informations during the hike. At the end they also prepared us an unattended surprise (we don’t want to reveal 😉).
Also, a technical note: we booked for 4 people but one of us couldn’t come and they refund us for his ticket without any problem.

P.s. we wait for Stephan to come in Italy (Umbria especially) to taste our prosciutto and all the others specialities!

My and my wife went for a weekend tour to Grænihryggur with Midgard Adventures. It included bus trip to and from Midgard Base Camp and accommodation before and after the trip, breakfast included. It also included guidance throughout the hike and burgers and drinks in Landmannalaugar after the hike. The landscape up there is quite phenomenal, as can be expected, and can be seen in pictures from the area. The biggest surprise was the people at Midgard, a family run company with the perfect blend of professionalism and laid-back attitude. I can not recommend them highly enough!

We planned an adventure trip and were not disappointed. Midgard set up our 10 day itinerary. This family run local company really knows the area. Kristin went out of her way to give us the best experience even with a few changes during the trip. Raggi our first guide was the best. He worked hard to make sure we saw everything and gave a personal touch with his local stories. Plus, he was a lot of fun! Mummy and Piorla were equally knowledgeable and personable. We had the pleasure of staying several days at the rustic Midgard Basecamp. Great food excellent staff…thanks Gina for really caring and taking a personal interest in our stay. It is now our home away from home. I would not hesitate to recommend this company when coming to Iceland for a true adventure from hiking a glacier, boating in glacier bay, ice tunnels or hiking in many areas and seeing the northern lights. We had a fantastic trip!

Accommodating
The first word that came to my mind for this review on Midgard Adventure was accommodating. We did the 7 Day Epic Adventure Tour. From the first moment I met their friendly staff I feIt welcome and comfortable. I left feeling like I was a part of the Midgard family. They ALWAYS went the extra mile to grant our requests, and then, went beyond those asked for favors, to make the event even more memorable. The extra effort seemed effortless. It was duly noted and appreciated. Their laid back style was refreshing and comforting. They live and breathe by the Icelandic motto of Þetta Reddast (pronounced thet-ta re-dust) which means it's all going to work out in the end. Or don't worry, it's going to be okay!
The guides are passionate about hiking and the utterly stunning and diverse landscape they get to live and work in every day. They are eager to share that beauty with their guests. It was clearly evident to us that they absolutely LOVE the outdoors.
The base camp and hot tub area are
clean and well cared for in a setting that includes Icelandic horses grazing in the vast fields directly behind the “upscale hostel” facility. The food and bar drinks served at the facility, and during our camping trek, were fresh and satisfying.
The personable wait and bar staff at Midgard was eager to help and quick to make you laugh.
They use high quality camping tents and sleeping pads, in excellent condition. We enjoyed the large, brand new, “community tent” where we gathered to eat and socialize while on the trail.
We had a fantastic time in Iceland and Midgard played a huge part in that. I highly recommend this company. If you use them, you too can experience Þetta Reddast because “It’s going to be fine.”

A great experience with Midgard base camp over the Fimmvörðuháls, from Skógar to Þórsmörk. The group was a mixture of friends and couples, experienced and unexperienced hikers. The guides were excellent, kept us going with a nice pace, not too fast and not too slow. When we arrived, burgers and beers waited for us. The beer yoga was a nice bonus after a long walk. Can recommend them 100%.

This was our first time in Iceland and we had a wonderful time. When we were planning the trip, Björg was very honest about what can be done. The days were busy, but we also had time to rest. The food was outstanding( try the beet soup), rooms were clean and I loved waking up and seeing “ my horses” outside, grazing or playing. Sæbjörg was a delight to be with and she went out of her way to take us places off the beaten path and adjust according to weather. Snorri was great and a wealth of knowledge. Looking back at the pictures we can’t believe how many beautiful places and waterfalls we were able to see. Everyone was happy at Midgard and it seemed more of a big family rather than an accommodation. Gina always had a smile on her face and her energy is contagious! She cares so much about making sure that people were happy! We would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you all for the wonderful memories!

Hard for me to add to George F-RVA's thorough review of our group's experience with Midgard. My wife and I had used Midgard on two previous day trips, a superjeep tour to Thorsmork and a guided tour on the Fimmvorduhals trail from Skogafoss to Thorsmork. We had an excellent experience on both. So when it came time for us to plan our guys trip I confidently used Midgard to plan our entire trip from pick up and drop off at the airport and everything in between. All the pre trip details and payment was easily handled through email. As the trip planner there can be some added pressure. This was my fifth time to Iceland and I wanted our group to experience the Iceland I have come to love. All I had to do was connect with Midgard and they made it happen! They planned the 7 day epic adventure with an extra day added on the front end. As we made slight changes to our logistics they were extremely flexible. Thorir and Addi took great care of us on our trek and once we returned to basecamp Gina was very helpful in making sure our last evening was a celebration and she also helped coordinate some last day logistics with Thorir. Midgard also recognized my birthday on the trail and once we returned to basecamp for our last night. Midgard surpassed all of our expectations! Thank you Midgard team, Rob

My wife and i did a private day tour with Midgard and it was fantastic. We started the day at the Midgard base camp location where we met our guide, Ingi. After telling him what we had done in our short time in Iceland he told us he told us that he had a great day ahead of us and if he did it right, we wouldn’t see any other tourists all day!
We started the day with a stop at a local farm where we had up close experiences with some beautiful horses and a quick tour of the dairy farm before taking a tour of a stunning private black sand beach. From there we headed to a mountain that we climbed to incredible views before breaking for a wonderful hot dog lunch.
The rest of the day was spent exploring various valleys and mountains highlighted by many stunning waterfalls. We ended the day with a hot tub beer at Midgard and a great meal before leaving.
The entire day was amazing and though we had our hesitations because it was not cheap, it was easily the highlight of our trip and completely worth it. Our guide, Ingi, was as good as it gets.

Fantastic from start to finish! Thorsmork Jeep tour. Booking was flawless, a few emails with detailed and helpful info and even auto holding a seat for me when only one was left while I was debating to go with the Jeep or on a regular hike. And that's is 2 days before the tour itself. Our guide Palme was very knowledgeable and well versed on multiple subjects. We had 3 canyon hikes, 1 summit hike, multiple river crossings. And if you can tap into the energies in this place, you will be bouncing off the walls!
