    Departed from Reykjavik at about 9 AM.
    If you take this tour, a transport (it could be a van...) will pick you up from your hotel or wherever you stay around Reykjavik...
    First, we would drive along The Ring Road & seeing the Icelandic sceneries which are just so amazing !
    The tour guide would also start to crack her first joke !

    The lake inside the crater is supposed to be green in colour but when I was there, it was blue...Nice nonetheless.
    I wish I could down to the lake below but we only stopped for like 20 minutes only...

    Took another photo inside the green house which there's a cafe...The prices here are expensive ! Maybe not so expensive...Looking at the 'carpets' on display in the photo, placed in a Viking ship...thought they're kinda amusing...

    Another great Waterfall .. Faxi

    by frank_delargy Updated Mar 3, 2010

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I actually liked this waterfall better than Gullfoss. Maybe because we were the only people there! Imagine having this to yourself.

    Faxi Falls Faxi falls to ourselves! Awesome!

    The Upper Falls

    by travelfrosch Updated Jul 6, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you come to the end of the path, you can get an excellent view of both falls. In this case, we concentrated on the upper half of the falls. The views are, as Sara would say, not too hard to take.

    The Upper Falls Sara enjoys the view
