The Golden Circle region of Iceland is a famous tourist route from Reykjavik into central Iceland that includes natural wonders such as waterfalls and geysers along with historic sites within the Þingvellir National Park. This whole area is bountiful with great scenery and during my visit it was a snow-covered winter wonderland.
Known as the “small falls” Faxi waterfall or Vatnsleysufoss on the Tungufljót River is an essential stop within the Golden Circle. The falls are not that high but are very wide and with a bit of winter sunshine make for a picturesque and peaceful stop.
These falls are just one of the many scenic wonders of the Golden Circle. Over the next few weeks I will post more on the landscape and attractions of this region. I think you will soon agree that Iceland is indeed a beautiful country.
