Imatrankoski (The Imatra Rapids) are rapids on the Vuoksi in Imatra, Finland. It has been a famous tourist attraction since the late 1700s. Imatrankoski is also one of the National landscapes of Finland. Since 1929, the rapids has been blocked by a dam as the Imatra hydroelectric plant began operation. Today, the dam is opened daily between June and August (Wednesday to Sunday, at 18:00) as well as on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.

  • Very beautiful landscape. Unfortunately the water flow was closed for construction back in August 2019. Overall, the nature and the view is very nice. Definitely recommend.
  • All year round - a good starting point for short trails along both sides of the river. Take the stairs down from the bridge and walk along the bench of the river. There is a map also detailing one of the trails. In summer there is the show (at 18:00 in 2019, Wed-Sun) if the waterfall. Very nice.
