What Others Have To Say.

"Best place I've stayed in Iceland"

 Reviewed 5 weeks ago.

This has been the best accommodation I’ve stayed in Iceland in the whole 5 weeks I’ve been here. Being so brand new (only 2 months old or so) everything in this place is impeccably clean and you can tell they pride themselves on keeping it that way. The rooms themselves range from private ensuite bedrooms to 6 bed dorms, which is where I spent 4 nights and it was the most comfortable and well set-up dorm I’ve seen. With the midnight sun I’ve found most hostels difficult to sleep in but Midgard provide each bunk with an individual curtain (which is very thick) and also a blind for the window so the room ends up almost pitch black (perfection)…

"Great and friendly staff in new building"

 Reviewed 5 weeks ago.

Thanks to the Midgard base camp team for hosting during a 2 night stay in July 2017. The place is completely new with nice large dormitory rooms with great features such as private curtains and large drawers that can be locked. Further the place offers a sauna and hot top that we used a lot! The location is great with close proximity to some of the great things in the area (skogar, thorsmark etc) and only 500m from the bus stop. Last all people that helped us were nice and kind and amazingly helpful.

Our Story

Midgard Base Camp opened in May 2017 but its story started way earlier! It involves a big volcanic eruption, life-changing fondue dinner party, a neglected factory building and of course a bunch of amazing and wonderful people that form the Midgard family!
