Imatra Waterfall, Imatra

(300+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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. Plan your visit to Imatra Waterfall and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Imatra trip builder.

  • Imatra Rapids was our main reason to visit Imatra. There are construction works and water flow is closed except Saturdays. As we were on a weekday we missed rapids.  more »
  • we saw the very last "running of water" in Imatra rapids in August 2016. The dam is being reconstructed for 2 years, so no water in the river for 2 years.  more »
  • Unfortunately we did not experience the waterfall in action this time. The place is still worth visiting.  more »
