Imatra Waterfall, Imatra

#1 of 106 in Nature in Finland
View the power of water at Imatra Waterfall, used for hydroelectricity since 1929. These rapids once were turned on year-round, but now they operate seasonally to harness the water's force. Though war and industrialization have worn away at the city and its attractions, the falls are still an impressive sight. Put Imatra Waterfall and other Imatra attractions into our Imatra trip itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • An amazing place where nature in full harmony with the human will works, if not miracles, then something close to them. The power of falling water (just had a dry stream - and here is a mighty foaming stream fills the whole space!), and the beauty around (forest park, a little further away - a lake of impossible charm, Vuokswitha with picturesque shores). The action itself lasts 20 minutes, but for a walk in the neighborhood you can allocate an hour, and two, and how much effort and time!

  • Very beautiful and large-scale. Even though we got to the moment when the dam was closed, we got a lot of impressions!
