Miekankoski

In Miekankoski you will find the Miekankoski Museum of Log Floating, a handicrafts shop, a blacksmith's workshop, a memorial to the Treaty of Turku, a café and a restaurant. It is also a popular recreational area and rapids fishing destination.

The Miekankoski Museum of Log Floating is situated in an original log-floating area at the Miekankoski rapids, approximately 10 kilometres from the centre of Mäntyharju. Although the tradition of log floating came to an end at Miekankoski in 1975, visitors can learn how trees were traditionally transported from the forests to the mills at the museum. The buildings on the island are all from the log-floating era, creating an authentic atmosphere. The museum is owned by the Municipality of Mäntyharju and operated by the Miekankoski Café. Admission is free of charge.

Useful information

Native fish species at the Miekankoski rapids include whitefish, trout and ide. Trout and grayling have also been planted. Casting and fly fishing are permitted at the rapids. The facilities include a campfire site and café, where you can also purchase local fishing permits.

Canoes, kayaks, rowing boats and bicycles can also be rented at the site. The café also offers accommodation in rooms and cottages, and a loggers' sauna can be rented. The Mäntyharju-Repovesi paddling route passes through Miekankoski on the way to the national park. Miekankoski is also a "mailbox cycling" destination.
