DAY 1 - Welcome to Iceland!

Morning/early afternoon

  • Arrive at Keflavík International Airport (KEF) before 11:00AM. Your guide will be there to welcome you.
  • On our way to the south we will explore the Reykjavík peninsula.
  • On our way we will stop for lunch and also do some sightseeing to give you a feel for what Iceland is all about, the landscape and the geothermal power underneath.

Late afternoon/ evening:

  • If you arrive early to Base Camp (depending on your flight) we recommend you start by visiting the amazing Lava Centre (a few minutes walk from Base Camp)
  • Enjoy an Icelandic dinner at Midgard Base Camp and get to know the rest of the group
  • If there is a clear sky and the Northern Lights forecast is promising we will pack our bags and head on searching for the Lights. This applies for all the nights if the prognosis is good. 
  • For those not willing to take on more travel during the nights you can put on your bathing suits, place yourself in the hot tub on the rooftop at Midgard Base Camp and wait for the lights to arrive. 
  • Accommodation at Midgard Base Camp

DAY 2 - South Coast and glacier adventure

Morning:

  • Enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet at Midgard Base Camp
  • Today we will explore the beautiful south coast. Possible stops include: Skógafoss waterfall, Seljalandsfoss waterfall (you can walk behind it!), black sand beach, Vík, Reynisfjara and Dyrhólaey.

Afternoon:

  • Visit the Sólheimajökull outlet glacier to witness the ongoing changes on the glaciers. To give you an even better introduction of the glacier world we fasten our crampons and take on a short hike on the glacier.
  • If time allows and if road conditions are good we might head all the way to Vik but we will adjust to daylight and weather.
  • When back at Midgard Base Camp in the afternoon we recommend visiting the local swimming pool. Sitting in the pool after an active day is very rewarding. The pool area consists of an outdoor pool filled with warm water, hot tubs and a sauna.

Evening:

  • Dinner at Midgard Base Camp Restaurant
  • Activities during the evening depend on the group. Usually people are tired after the day and want to enjoy the evening having a drink at the bar and sharing stories. However if you still have energy we will gladly arrange an outdoor activity. 
  • If the northern lights forecast is promising we will head out in search for them. We might not even have to step out of Base Camp to see them – you can possibly enjoy the view from the roof top hot tub.
  • Accommodation at Midgard Base Camp

DAY 3 - Þórsmörk or Eyjafjallajökull super jeep adventure

Morning:

  • After a nice breakfast at Midgard Base Camp we tie our shoelace and head on to Þórsmörk, the valley of the Thunder God Thor. Þórsmörk was made in eruptions underneath the glaciers that makes its wonderful landscape. 

Afternoon:

  • On our way inside the valley we will explore the surroundings of the volcano Eyjafjallajökull, the one that erupted in 2010. We stop by the outlet glacier Gígjökull where the eruption first presented itself.
  • When in Þórsmörk we take on hikes depending on the group’s energy and will.

Evening:

  • Enjoy a delicious dinner at Midgard Base Camp Restaurant
  • This night there is still a possibility to visit the swimming pool or the Lava Centre. Another possibility is to go on a bike tour around the Hvolsvöllur area. 
  • As with the two previous nights we will search for the northern lights if the forecast is promising
  • Accommodation at Midgard Base Camp

DAY 4 - Surprise day / Departure

Morning:

  • After a filling breakfast at Midgard Base Camp, get ready for your final adventure
  • On this day there are a few possibilities. We will most likely take you on a hike to Reykjadalur, the geothermal area and for a warm bath but if weather does not allow we will just do something else which might include the Golden Circle, the Þjórsárdalur walley or more. The weather will decide on this. Whatever will be the choice we promise a nice day.

Afternoon:

  • At the end of the day we take you to Keflavík International Airport (KEF) or Reykjavík. If you are flying home on this day your flight should depart 7:00PM or later.
  • If you decide to extend your stay we are of course more than willing to help you book your accommodation in Reykjavík or help you extend your trip elsewhere.

Review by Sigurdur S. From Iceland || 2018-04-01 12:44:49
This package is a great introduction to Iceland. It´s easy to book and has all inclusive. Iceland is quite hard to plan, specially in the winter and the idea of just booking, showing up and being taken care is amazing. Then the quality of the service is outstanding, sights with no crowds and the Midgard Basecamp was super comfy. Highly recommend this tour
Review by Elisia F. From United States of America || 2018-03-17 12:48:06
JUST DO IT! We were with Midgard for 4-days on the Northern Lights package tour. I cannot express how amazing the entire experience was. I am normally a DIY person for trips, but since we were visiting Iceland in the February - I wanted to book with a company so we wouldn't have to worry about the winter conditions (and thank goodness - we saw cars stuck in snow every day). I am so glad we decided to go with Midgard - the places they took us were unbelievable. Yes we saw all the main attractions Iceland is known for, but we also got to see things that only locals know about - and honestly those were our favorites. Not just because of how gorgeous the site was, but also because we were the only people there, like being on the top of the world. I have been trying to find a way to express how amazing the staff at Midgard is - what I can say is that they all have a tremendous love for Iceland and for what they do - it oozes out of them and is why they are the best folks to travel through Iceland with. We are so glad we signed up for the tour - considering the cost of traveling in Iceland, it actually is also one of the best deals out there. Could not recommend them more highly - if you are considering touring with them, just do it, you won't regret it.
