Jökulheimar, or home of glaciers, is in the lower part of the Tungná River on the edge of the Tungná Glacier. The road there goes from Veiðivötn to Vatnaaldar east of Mt. Ljósa up to the Glacier Research Society lodge. The area around Jökulheimar is a barren wasteland. It is possible to ford the Tungná in a large four-wheel drive vehicle going to or from the Tungnár mountains (Breidbak) to Langasjó and then down to the Landmannalaugar road.
