Mäkiautio gorge

Tahko’s latest natural attraction is open.

Mäkiautio gorge

One of Tahko’s secret gems has been opened for everyone

The magnificent rocky gorge of Mäkiautio is a beautiful geological deposit. It is located 300m north from Panorama Bar & Café, near the top of the slopes of Tahko. The place has been challenging to and almost a hidden destination, but it has now been refurbished for everyone to experience.

About 150 meters of stairs and duckboards have been built in to the gorge and it is easy to deviate from the Tahkomäki tour/ El Grande. A new shed is under construction at the bottom of the gorge and is expected to be completed during July-August.

The renovation of the gorge is a part of an ongoing route project and the route throught Mäkiautio gorge will also be continued later in the summer 2020.

When is the gorge ready?

Please be careful as the construction of Mäkiautio gorge is still in progress.

Review July 14th, 2020:

  • There are no signs yet, but the upper part of the stairs leading to the gorge is clearly visible to the Tahko mountain route.
  • Stairs and duckboards are ready and safe to pass through the gorge
  • Most of the railings are in place.
  • Construction of the shed and its surroundings is in progress and there is no fireplace yet.
