TASTE THE UNTOUCHED. FEEL THE UNKNOWN. SEE THE WILD.

The most exciting exploring you will ever encounter. By dedicating two days instead of just one for your Chernobyl travel, you will be rewarded with seeing at least 3 times  more than during any one day Chernobyl tour. Is it worth it, you might ask? The reviews of photographers, gamers and fellow adventurers might help you, but they still might not be as complete as some of what you will see is not to be spread online. Uncovering mysteries of iconic places, entering areas off the beaten track with sceneries that you have not yet seen in any Instagram feed, and going deep into the stories of Chernobyl heroes are just a fraction of the tour itinerary. Spending a night in the clean town of Chernobyl or in the city built for evacuees – Slavutych will give you a whole new perspective about not just the past, but also the future of the Chernobyl zone.

The tour starts in Kyiv, continuing with 2-hour drive to the Zone  - feel free to read a newspaper from 1986, watch a documentary about the Chernobyl disaster, or just prepare questions for your guide while using Wi-Fi. On the 2 day tour, together you’ll explore the still operating city of Chernobyl, the panorama of the (in)famous power plant and then head to the ghost town, Pripyat, to see the main square and abandoned playground with the still standing Ferris wheel. Instead of offering you a ride, we will ruin one of the myths right on the spot and show you what is a radioactive hotspot (concentrated radiation) – all from a safe distance. Wandering around the abandoned city infrastructure will make you feel like a real Soviet citizen. In the evening you’ll enjoy a traditional Ukrainian dinner and later you can chat with your guide, local workers & the rest of the group. Alternatively, you can process your new memories and photos, and maybe buy some local groceries or products. Maybe you will feel a bit tired but a skyline view of Pripyat or having the time to self-explore some places will promise moments of excitement that you might never experience again. Full program of the tour can be downloaded below.

The emotional highlight of the tour – most of the time – is a short visit to the self-settlers also known as the Chernobyl Babushkas, who will not just share their personal stories with you, but also gladly show you their living conditions (which still looks like it’s from the Soviet era) and maybe even offer you some home-made goodies. Before leaving the Zone late afternoon, we’ll pass the last of the 7 dosimetric controls just to be sure, that you’re taking back home only good memories. 

Since Establishing our tours in 2008 with the promise of making visits to Chernobyl finally safe and accessible for international travellers, we keep on improving our safety procedures not just by giving you free of charge dosimeters (Geiger-Muller Counters), respirators, and taking you through the verified and cleaned paths, but will also provide you with at least 7 dosimetric controls so you will feel comfortable on your journey back home. Also, we help you leave your Chernobyl legacy with free postcards, a free t-shirt and a free ticket to the Chernobyl museum in Kyiv.  The Chernobyl 2 Day Tour with CHERNOBYLwel.come will become your life changing tour, where you do not need to take care of anything else other than the storyline and charged batteries in your camera. Thank you for not compromising on quality when travelling to Chernobyl.

Due to actual constraints or weather conditions in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, CHERNOBYLwel.come keeps the right to change the program of the itinerary. But thanks to the experience of our guides, prepare to be amazed and mesmerized on a trip of your lifetime!

IS IT SAFE?

Our trained guides, Geiger-Muller counters (dosimeters) and Dosimetric control at least twice a day will ensure you stay safe throughout your whole stay in Chernobyl. The radiation level in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is on average slightly higher than the natural background radiation, however the dose of radiation received in 2 days spent in Chernobyl and Pripyat won’t exceed 8 microsieverts (4% the daily nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to around 7 hours on an intercontinental flight. Besides maximum safety, CHERNOBYLwel.come will take care of all documents, permits, transportation, insurance, dining, qualified guides and a surprise. Moreover, we will provide the most intense, most photogenic and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed.
