On the way to Svartifoss waterfall in Skaftafell you will walk by two much smaller waterfalls, the first one is Hundafoss (Dogs´fall) and the second one Þjófafoss (Thieves' fall). They are not so visible on the east-side of the river leading to Svartifoss, but if you return on the west-side of the river there you will see them clearly.
Hundafoss is the larger one of the two and is marked, so that you cannot miss it. It got its name "Dogs' fall" from the fact that during the swelling of the river dogs from the farms there sometimes floated off the waterfall.
Þjófafoss is a smaller waterfall below Hundafoss.
On the west-side of the river there is a trail from which you can walk both down to the waterfalls and many beauty spots where you can clearly see the waterfalls.
Address: Skaftafell National Park, South Iceland
Directions: You can even drive to these waterfalls. Instead of stopping at the Visitor Centre in Skaftafell then you drive on a road leading to the west and leads to these watefalls. But I walked down from Svartifoss.
