On September 22nd 2007 we hiked from the Jökulheimar cabin to the rock formation Dór. Although Dór is interesting enough, I'm not sure I'd recommend a hike this long to view it - there's a perfectly good 4x4 track that runs most of the way! We had to do it this way only because the Book (Icelandic Mountains) prescribes this route ....

    The hut belongs to the Icelandic Glaciological Society - if you Google "jökulheimar glaciological hut" then you'll find a wealth of information.

    No public transport as far as I know - and your time-frame may in fact coincide with the season that might best be described as "mud" - during which vehicle travel in the highlands is BANNED (as opposed to being "at own risk"). I am not quite sure of this - check with the road administration (vegagerdin.is)
