Pikefossen falls is the only waterfall (8 metres) on the Kautokeino/Alta River.
The name is derived from a Sami legend of a girl herding reindeer while her master was travelling. The whole herd of reindeer drowned. When her master returned and saw what had happened, he threw the servant girl into the waterfall, hence the name. Picnic area with toilets.
