Heima (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈheiːma]; at home) is a documentary film and double DVD set about the tour around Iceland in the summer of 2006 of the band Sigur Rós. During the tour the band played two big open-air concerts at Miklatún - Reykjavík (30 July) and Ásbyrgi (4 August), as well as small scale concerts at Ólafsvík (24 July), Ísafjörður (26 July), Djúpavík (27 July), Háls, Öxnadalur (28 July) and Seyðisfjörður (3 August). In addition, a protest concert against the Kárahnjúkar dam was performed at Snæfellsskála (3 August). The documentary also includes footage of an acoustic concert played for family and friends at Gamla Borg, a coffee shop in the small town Borg, on 22 April 2007.

The documentary premiered in Iceland at the Reykjavík International Film Festival opening day, 27 September 2007. Heima was released 5 November 2007 (4 December in North America) in two editions, one including atmospheric photos in a photobook documenting the tour. It has since then become a cult film.[1] In December 2007, American webzine Somewhere Cold voted Heima DVD of the Year on their 2007 Somewhere Cold Awards Hall of Fame.[2]

The DVD has sold 5,000 copies in Canada earning it a Gold Award under the Video Certifications.[3] And it was certified Platinum for 100,000 copies in America.[4]

On May 27, 2011 the band released an official HD-quality version of Heima on their website, available as digital download in QuickTime format.
