Faxi is a wide, serene waterfall in South Iceland, approximately twelve kilometres away from Gullfoss and Geysir, two incredibly popular attractions on the Golden Circle. It can be found in the Tungufljót River.

Hiking and salmon fishing are the two most popular activities in the area. Although it is not particularly rapid, kayaking and rafting are banned here; those eager to participate in one of these excursions should head to the nearby Hvíta River.
