Property Description

Midgard is an ideal Icelandic “Base Camp”, a modern center with a very cozy “family feel” and a very happy, positive atmosphere.

Midgard is located in central South Iceland, in Hvolsvöllur, a small town of 900 inhabitants and it is a place for everyone. Midgard is run by family and friends so this is the place where you can meet with locals and fellow travelers.

Given the location of Midgard Base Camp in the middle of the main sights you can easily stay for several days and do day tours from here. A day spent along the south coast checking out Skógafoss, Seljalandsfoss, the black beach in Reynisfjara and the outlet glacier Sólheimajökull and even all the way to the Glacier Lagoon. The Golden Circle and the Reykjadalur geothermal hike are within a short distance and you can easily spend one day in Reykjavík and then leave the town again for the quietness of the countryside. If you are up to other things check out our travel agency´s, Midgard Adventure´s home page and let us introduce you to our favorite places and our playgrounds - the Fjallabak area with the beautiful sights like Landmannalaugar, Þórsmörk, Mælifell, the glacial river and its canyons Markarfljót and much more. Join us on tours to these areas or ask us for assistance to create your trip. Super jeep tours, snowmobiles, fat bikes or hikes.... all depending on how you want to travel. Allow us to help you to create your trip free of charge if you are staying with us. We are all locals and huge travelers and love to give advice.

Midgard Base Camp is very much a place from which to come and go, before and after exploring the spectacular natural environments that are all around. Midgard is a place to tell your stories of the day and to hear those of others. Midgard is a place to relax, to refresh and to recharge (both yourself and your camera and ‘phone batteries!). In addition, we offer several kind of accommodations from dorms to private spaces that will suit to any kind of guest and traveller.

As we decided to open up a restaurant and a bar together with the accommodation, Midgard Basecamp does not provide a self-catering kitchen. We offer coffee and tea free of charge.

    Superb

    Don't hesitate. This is the perfect stop after doing the golden circle, and assuming you're going down the ring-road. I'm guessing you didn't travel to Iceland to be in a city - don't stay in Reykjavik! It's a little pricier than other hostels, but you get what you pay for and more.

    The place was very clean, with all amenities except a kitchen. Has shoe dries and towel warmers -- never seen these in a hostel before. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Hostel itself was really great but it was really quiet and kinda middle of nowhere. This shouldnt be a surprise though. Like the name says, it works best for a stopover when driving the south coast. Most comfortable beds in ages and they even have a sauna and hot tub. I would definately recommend for a night or two.

    Overall very modern looking hostel. Only downside was the lack of a kitchen. Would food already being expensive in Iceland, the only option at the hostel was ordering at their restaurant and that was not within our budget.
