Heima (; 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.

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.

The DVD has sold 5,000 copies in Canada earning it a Gold Award under the Video Certifications.
