The story of the Midgard family goes back to 2010 when Midgard Adventure was founded. A few years in the tour operating business the idea of a Base Camp was born. The Midgard family wanted to create a friendly place with a family feel - an extension to our homes. A place to unwind, relax, eat good food, mingle and make new friends. We wanted to spend more time with the guests after the tours and that’s how the idea of Base Camp was born. EventsThere is always something going on at Midgard Base Camp.
