perspective of Chernobyl Power Plant

The Real Chernobyl Epicenter

This is the place that changed the history of mankind, financially ruined Soviet Union and made the whole world question nuclear energy. Now you are about to witness it on your own from a totally different perspective from what you’ve seen in movies or documentaries. A perspective that will shake your values and worldview. A perspective that will take you back in time to the Soviet Union, to the 1980s, deep into the Cold War. You will walk in the footsteps of comrade Anatoly Dyatlov who commanded his colleagues and led the situation to the world's most (in)famous nuclear blast.

 

Chernobyl LIVE tour will take you online around the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant from the very decision to build the largest nuclear power plant, through secret KGB documents stating what defects the fast construction caused, all the way to the destined night of the disaster. With your guide you will peek into the premises of Chernobyl Power Plant, even reactors 5 and 6 that were left unfinished, you will walk over the memorial alley dedicated to the direct victims of the accident, you will see how the power plant operates today, including a train station that brings workers every day to work. As an insider, you’ll visit the canteen where workers measure their radiation before they’re served, you will stand at the same spot from where one of our guides eye-witnessed the explosion in 1986, you will see the fire station from which the firefighters were the first to liquidate the aftermath, you will even see the ruins of the notorious helicopter crash. With a Geiger counter in front of the camera, do not forget to take screen shots when we round the Red Forest, ghost town Pripyat city sign where we will safely step into the danger zone and measure hotspot radiation levels with you by our side. Last but not least, you will see and learn about the largest moveable object on planet Earth – the newest safe confinement (sarcophagus). Yes, you will even get a selfie with it so all your friends can see where you can teleport!

 

All this with a background of over 11 years spent in the Chernobyl Zone, including great professional guides and her best friend – the dosimeter. Curious, thrilled, excited. This is how most of you come to the tour, but ALL will leave reaching a new level of adventure. Who said online is less than real? See, feel, experience…we do the touch for you. For real. Including places where tourist groups dare not go. Not enough? Aha, are you coming to make a difference? Great! By taking the tour, you’re directly helping the Chernobyl Zone to preserve the most precious value – its people. 1% of the tour prices go directly to help the Chernobyl Babushkas.

 

Since establishing our tours in 2008 with the promise of making visits to Chernobyl finally safe and accessible for international travelers, now we can make it accessible for online travelers as well. Thank you for coming online and taking the Chernobyl legacy one step further. 

The program and places visited are subject to change due to actual constrains in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. Entering buildings in Pripyat is, unfortunately, prohibited since 2012.

IS IT SAFE?

Super safe: Well, you‘re at home...but we do have a Dosimeter for you!

Our trained guides will guide you ONLY on health-non-hazardous places and trails. The dose of radiation received during 1 day spent in the Chernobyl zone will not exceed 3-4 microsieverts (3-4% of nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to around 4 hours on an intercontinental flight. Moreover, we will provide the most intense, most photogenic, and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed
