Title: Midgard wilderness adventure

Length : 3 days / 2 nights
From 1300 Euros per person

Midgard - A timeless place of wonder. Situated in the heart of the Icelandic highlands, Midgard epitomises being in the middle of nowhere and is accessible only with a modified super jeep. To get there we will traverse the vastness of the Sprengisandur desert and make our way across the other-worldly Icelandic highlands which is an adventure in itself and makes arriving at Midgard so rewarding. The vividness of the Northern lights and the clarity of the shooting stars in this haven of isolated solitude is a once in a lifetime experience that will never be forgotten. At Midgard boredom ceases to exist! The days are filled using the grown ups toys you have always dreamed of; super jeeps, snow kites, snowmobiles, snow shoes and skis and even fishing poles for ice fishing as well as having the opportunity to learn basic outdoor survival skills. The evenings at Midgard are spent relaxing, playing cards, sharing adventure stories or if you prefer, just enjoying the ambience in front of the fire while Icelandic delicacies are prepared on the BBQ. If you love adventure and the outdoors and wish to experience something unique far away from city lights and the “daily grind” - this is your ultimate sanctuary.
Private departures are also available.
