Midgard Adventure is located in the small town of Hvolsvöllur, central South Iceland. This is in the heart of Katla Geopark and is thus in the heart of many magnificent and varied sceneries.
The company was founded in the spring of 2010 and is both a travel agency and a tour operator and thus able of organising and planning all aspects of your itinerary including booking of hotels and activities.
For individuals, travellers and groups (of friends or family), we offer a very wide range of Icelandic adventures. This includes super jeep tours, hiking, climbing, horse riding, snowmobiling, ice climbing, northern light seeking (the aurora borealis) and much more.
We aim at all times to offer professional guiding services in the often by-passed rural and wilderness areas surrounding Hvolsvöllur and in Southern Iceland. Such locations contain scenic gems that offer superb experiences. In the company of our friendly, highly knowledgeable and empathetic guides, we hope to enhance your “feeling of discovery” to the maximum..
Midgard Adventure is a member of Vakinn, the official quality system within Icelandic tourism.
Featured trips & expertise
Perfect for the more active adventurer, this high-octane itinerary takes you through beautiful southern Iceland. Explore some of Iceland's most stunning sites on a partially self-guided hiking and biking tour from the Thórsmörk Valley to the black sands of Reynisfjara to the must-see Skógafoss waterfall. Discover impressive coastlines, thunderous waterfalls, towering ice-caps, and glistening glaciers.
Starting in Reykjavik, this 6-day Icelandic road trip lets you visit classic highlights along the country's south coast including waterfalls, black sand beaches, basalt columns, massive glaciers, and icebergs at your own pace. You'll then join the popular Golden Circle route where you can see Gullfoss waterfall, the geothermal area of Geysir (watch Strokkur erupt like clockwork), and Thingvellir National Park where tectonic plates meet. Finish the adventure with a soak in the Blue Lagoon before your return flight home.
With 10 days on the road, you can discover a variety of regions and landscapes as you loop around Iceland's famous Route 1 (Ring Road). This moderately paced self-drive itinerary will take you to the best spots along the 828-mile (1,332 km) route with stops in its two biggest cities, as well as volcanoes, waterfalls, lava fields, black sand beaches, small fishing towns, and massive glaciers, as well as major attractions in the Golden Circle. This is going to be one gorgeous ride!
On this scenic road trip, you'll skip Iceland's busier south coast in order to explore the lesser-known Snaefellsnes Peninsula and northern beauties of Akureyri, Husavik, and Lake Myvatn. This all-season itinerary is especially ideal for anyone interested in the unique geological features of Iceland, with lava fields, volcano hikes, massive waterfalls, and geothermal pools—all there for the taking.
Drive through rivers, canyons, and highlands to explore one of Iceland's most iconic natural destinations. From imposing glaciers to lush hills, Thorsmork's varied landscape is a sight to behold, and this day-long tour will give you the full experience.
From striking glacial formations to richly green valleys, Thorsmork offers some of the best views in all of Iceland. On this convenient day trip, you'll get the chance to hike in some of the region's most-visited — and most beautiful — nature reserves.

Midgard Basecamp was a great place to stay. Friendly staff, and great food and drinks! Our guide Bjarni Guðmundsson was awesome! We spent a few days with Bjarni exploring the wilderness and he knew lots of great spots to show us. I would definitely recommend Midgard Adventure!
Guys adventure weekend · Iceland - Feb 21 - Feb 25, 2019
I have just returned from a phenomenal trip to Iceland. Kimkim.com helped us establish a trip which included all the elements of adventure we were looking for. They utilized Midgard Adventures and Midgard Base Camp. Midgard added some completely unique dimensions such a hornet meal in a cave! They also quickly adapted when our snowmobiling trip was cancelled due to weather, the revised day was even better than we had planned. Iceland with Kimkim/Midgard is an absolute must !

Goody and Ziggy showed our group parts of Iceland that few tourists get to experience. We climbed to the bottom of a large crevasse on Mýrdalshreppur Glacier and had the whole location to ourselves. Ziggy gave us a personal tour of Midgard Base Camp and Goody introduced us to the owner of Hotel Ranga whose entertaining stories were “mostly true”. These personal touches made for an amazing trip.

We absolutely loved our private Super Jeep tour through eyjafjallajökull and thorsmork valley! Addi was super knowledgeable of the geography and fun to hang out with. He took us through some hidden canypns that only localers would know about!

Midgard Adventure gave us the best vacation of our lives. All the members of the company are wonderful and went out of their way to make us feel at home, and indeed part of the Midgard family. They were extremely responsive to questions in the lead up to the trip and really cared about which activities were ok with a broken, and suggesting we spend time at the The Blue Lagoon rather than in the airport prior to pick up. The scenery is breathtaking, but Stefnir’s local knowledge and personal... read more

I communicated with Tanya using KimKim. My questions were answered within 24 hours (except on weekends or her days off). The responses I received were direct, professional, respectful, and thorough. I had concerns about communicating via email, as it took more time than if I communicated by phone, but the result was as complete and satisfying as it might have been by phone.
The staff at Midgard, with no exceptions, were helpful, polite, welcoming, and responsive. Tanya actually loaned me her... read more
Fimmvörðuháls Hike - The Ultimate Guide to one of Iceland's Best Day Hikes · Iceland - Aug 12 - Aug 19, 2018
The hike was beyond beautiful and our KimKim guide was terrific. My family of five had a fabulous day of it. It took us about 10.5 hours which is a little longer than they anticipate because the guide had to help me through the couple of high narrow spots — which he did patiently and calmly; I couldn’t have asked for better support for my fear of heights.... that is a good reason to use a guid , beyond the fact that it took all stars out of finding our way or making that final bus back.... read more
One day hike · Iceland - Aug 15 - Aug 15, 2018
A fantastic day with a local guide - great hiking with some cool, secret canyons and waterfalls. Lunch was amazing. Best of all were Jon’s Saga stores and personal love for the region. More than we expected!
Northern lights and nature · Iceland - Mar 11 - Mar 18, 2018
We had an awesome experience in Iceland and really thank both KimKim and Midgard. I would definitely use KimKim again the next time we go on international travel for a bit of adventure. They contacted me immediately and set me up with a local Iceland representative, Anna from Midgard. Anna did a great job, especially considering I was booking things at the last minute and my wife decided to join the trip after most of our plans were already set up. Anna was flexible and stayed at the... read more

Iceland Trip · Iceland - May 28 - May 30, 2017
Everything was good and we had a wonderful time on our trip. I do feel like a few things could be improved. Kimkim was not proactive in providing itineraries or details. Everything was booked but I didn't receive confirmation number or vouchers with the tour agency. When I asked about this I was assured that everything was all set and I didn't need any confirmation number or voucher.
While everything turned out to be fine I would have felt more comfortable with some sort of voucher. Also,... read more

5 day South Coast Adventure in March · Iceland - Feb 27 - Mar 3, 2017
Our trip to Iceland couldn't have been more perfect. To start with, it is a beautiful country and we were very fortunate to have had perfectly clear weather the entire 5 days we were there in February/March, after what we had been told was a very rainy winter. 18 inches of snow fell just before we arrived, and the Northern lights were out every night, making it a winter wonderland. That part was sheer luck, but on top of that, the trip was as smooth as we could have hoped. Our driver was... read more
