In the middle of nowhere. A black sand desert in the highlands, this is a good place to “get away from it all” – the silence is total, unbroken even by bird calls. During the winter months Jökulheimar are only accessible by Super Jeeps with plenty of them seen in this photo.
The area of Jökulheimar is quite barren and scarce growth can be found there but it is quite impressive as well, as the gravelly and tracts are surrounded by various craters, pillow lava and glacier-carved tuff cliffs.
From the Tungnárjökull glacier falls the river Tungnaá, which is one of Icelands most voluminous glacier rivers.
