Get to spend two days in the exclusion zone

During the spring tour in Chernobyl, the region slowly turns green again after the long, cold winter. During the tour you will visit all the highlights of the Exclusion Zone: from the village of Pripyat to the nuclear power plant itself. The starting and finishing point of the tour is Kiev. This tour can be combined with our Transnistria Spring Tour. After Kiev you will continue to Odessa, Tiraspol (Transnistria), Chisinau (Moldova) and end in Bucharest (Romania).

NOTE: This tour has been cancelled due to the war in Ukraine.
