Photographer's Note


The Faxi waterfall is not among the most famous in Iceland, but it is certainly interesting watching its very large form and also the surrounding scenery is delightful. As always I put a human presence in the composition to make you better understand the size. A panoramic view is available in WS.
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.
The waterfall is full of salmon and is a great spot for fishing, and very close to the waterfall is a marvelous restaurant called Vid Faxa.
Kayaking in the waterfall is forbidden.


La cascata di Faxi non è tra le più famose dell'Islanda, ma è sicuramente interessante osservando la sua forma molto larga ed anche il paesaggio circostante è delizioso. Come sempre io ho inserito una presenza umana nella composizione per farvi comprendere meglio le dimensioni. Una vista panoramica è disponibile nel WS.
