Addi and Stefan were incredibly great friendly host during these difficult Covid times. I have had pretty much free reign of their excellent facility and to some of their toys! I could not have asked for more. I would love to experience when things are normal again as I am sure it is a pretty hip and happening place when in full swing!

Our family of 4 (teens aged 14 and 16) stayed here for 4 days and did the Northern Lights Tour. Midguard has accomodations, a restaurant, and a tour agency- everything you need! Our guide Bjarni and his trusty companion Kria (sp?) took us on many wonderful adventures. The accomodations at Midguard are lovelyl- while it is technically a hostel, if you have hosteled you will know this is like the Ritz. We could have gotten a private room as they are available but felt out teens would benefit more from the hostel experience. Our beds were super comfortable and it was very quiet at night as we were there in the low season. The place is sparkling clean and the decor is fantastic, the common areas welcoming,. The restaurant is excellent as well, we had our best meals of our trip there, including a full Thanksgiving dinner. The staff was wonderful in every respect, patiently answering our many questions via email prior to the trip. Bjorg, Hildur. Stefan, Bjarni, Addi, Siggy, and the front desk staff truly welcomed us and made us feel the entire time like their highest priority was that we had a fantastic experience. From driving us out away from the city lights to pursue the Northern Lights to scheduling us an additional snowmobile ride, they took care of everything. For our family who value people and experiences as much as landmarks and destinations this was the perfect trip. We could not reccommend it more. PS Ask for Bjarni as your tour guide- he is knowledgeable, kind, humble, and patient, not to mention a classically trained singer! And his sidekick Kria the border collie may come along if you request her!

My second time visiting Midgard was somehow even better than the first time. The people, food, atmosphere, and overall feeling of comfort is wonderful here and will make anyone feel at home! Definitely will be back in the future :)

We were a group of 25 people who stayed two nights and hiked "Fimmvörðuháls" (25 km hike) organized by Midgard Base Camp. Wonderful guides. Great rooms. Great food (especially the vegan burger). Very nice breakfast buffet. Great place in general. Will definitely stay there again and go on one of their organized tours.
