Midgard is your base for adventure travel in South Iceland. We are a local family business offering a unique combo: with Midgard Base Camp as hostel/hotel and restaurant and Midgard Adventure as a tour operator and travel agency.

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

We are really proud of our location. The main tourist sights, such as Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, the black Sand Beach, the Golden Circle (with Geysir, Gullfoss and Þingvellir) are all easily reachable. Those or the main tourist sights of South Iceland. What we are more proud of is though our backyard, where you find Iceland off the beaten path, the real Iceland. Our small town builds the gate to the natural beauties of Fjallabak, Landmannalaugar and Thórsmörk.
With Midgard Adventure, our own travel agency and tour operator, we are offering tours into these areas. Please check out our for more infos on tours, activities and things to do in the area.

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. A big plus that is much appreciated by our guests is our rooftop hottub and sauna with views on grazing horses and world-famous volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

    Midgard is definitely one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed in. The vibe is super chill and the interior design is fun and modern. The rooftop hot tub is amazing and the bunks are super comfy. Nice big storage lockers as well were a plus. The restaurant and bar were also great. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. 10/10 recommend.

    We were travel weary and needed reprieve from our day. Midgard was our savior. Amazingly friendly staff. Exceptionally delicious food and drink. Clean, warm and secure lodgings. Family owned and run with their pride running through every single detail (they even have boot driers!). Truly a wonderful place to relax before your next adventures in Iceland. Exceptional!!

    As a first time solo traveller, I was a little nervous how it would go in a hostel. Midgard was so wonderful and restful to stay at. I love that this is a family business and even though I didn’t partake in the adventure trips, they looked incredible and sounded like returning guests had a great time. loved the quietness of Midgard and it was so clean. I felt very safe, especially with the thoughtful tough of individual curtains on beds. The location is perfect for exploring south Iceland.

    love love loved my 2 nights here!! The staff is welcoming, the food is great, and the hot tub and sauna are incredible. It was great to spend my nights in the hot tub overlooking the neighboring farms. However, I wish the facilities were open longer. The guest kitchen has specified hours (makes it hard for those of us that want to cook multiple times), and the hot tub/sauna didn't open until evening time. If I find myself back in Hvolsvöllur, I'll 100% be back to Midgard!

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in. Good location after doing some golden circle sights on your way east. Restaurant and bar downstairs, live music when I was there, hot tub, sauna, staff was super nice. One of the most fun nights of my trip.
