The Faxi (or Vatnsleysufoss) waterfall is located on the Golden Circle, a popular tourist trail east of Reykjavik. The waterfall is located on the Tungufljót river. Faxi can be found around twelve kilometres from Geysir and Gullfoss, and eight kilometres from Skalholt, away from the main road on a gravel track which includes a picnic area and a small car park. I'm also told that the salmon fishing is excellent around these parts.
Faxi was one of our bonus stops when I took a Bus Tour of the Golden Circle. This Waterfall is not as awesome as Dettifoss or Gullfoss, but it was fun to walk around, climb up the fish ladder, and take photos from various points of view.
