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 river is full of salmon and is a popular spot for fishing, and very close to the waterfall is a restaurant called Vid Faxa.
