another beautiful waterfall Feb 04, 2017
Faxi waterfall is 8 kms from Skalholt and is well worth making a detour. We visited the falls as part of the Golden Circle Tour and spent 30 minutes there. Tunguflj├│t river just drops a few meters then veers off at a left angle and continues towards the sea. At the side of the falls there is a ladder for the salmon to jump up so they can continue upstream to their breeding grounds. You can climb up the side of the ladder and reach the top of the falls to take photographs. Another good place for photography would be right at the side of the falls down from the car park (careful not to fall in)or the hill to the right of the falls. This is also a good area for kayakers to try their skills as the water after the falls is ideal for beginners.
