Vääksy Canal is a popular tourist attraction. It is one of the busiest recreational inland waterways in Europe. Vääksy canal connects Lake Vesijärvi with Lake Päijänne, and was built between 1868-1871.
The canal is about 1.3 kilometres in length with a lock gate in the middle. The difference in water level between the two ends of the canal is about 3 metres. Yachts and boats also pass under a lifting bridge.
There are museums, cafes, kiosks and restaurants located close to the canal, as well as footpaths along the banks.
