Faxi waterfall with salmon leap

Faxi waterfall in South Iceland. 14.03.2018

The new tour started today around the Golden Circle. We took a short stop at Faxi waterfall beside road 35. It’s a small waterfall but the place looks really nice even there isn’t hardly any snow the moment. The light offered a nice view to the manmade salmon leap. No salmons are jumping up there as yet but in June they will start to swim up to the place where they were born. Continue Reading →

They spent the first night in Reykjavik, the next day we arrived at Hunavatns Sysla where we found a little snow. But driving around the peninsulas of Vatnsnes and Tröllaskagi more and more winter feelings were coming up. Continue Reading →

Recently Best Travel got a nice feedback of Noela and Bob from Australia travelling around Iceland before flying to Switzerland:

Hi Eggert,
We are now home after spending some time in Switzerland. Wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful tour you conducted for Noela and me. We enjoyed everything and were very pleased to meet you. I am attaching the photo I took of you and Noela at the lava waterfall. Not very good I am afraid. Hope all is well with you. With best wishes, Bob.
