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

This is THE tour, the flagship among all Chernobyl tours, the ultimate experience.

Included is the ‘mandatory’ exploration of the secrets and history of the ghost city of Pripyat, the mysterious secret military radar Duga as well as a visit close to the ‘well-known’ Chernobyl nuclear power plant. On top of the ‘must haves’ you might also meet some of the Chernobyl babushkas (it's not 100% guaranteed, but highly probable - depending on the situation) who returned to live in the Chernobyl exclusion zone after the evacuation. You will have a chance to peek into the hidden parts of the ghost town Pripyat, even into it’s still operational parts or departments. Unfinished cooling towers, abandoned fish laboratory, farm, mysterious Jupiter factory, bus station, police and fire departments… there are unlimited places to discover and this tour adjusts to your preference.

USEFUL INFORMATION
The tour starts and ends in Kiev. The price of the trip includes transfer from Kiev to Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and back with comfortable van (Mercedes-Benz Sprinter) with Wi-Fi and A/C, official permit for entering the zone, overnight accommodation, full pension & non-stop services of our professional guide. Flight ticket to/from Kiev is not included in the price.

TIP: Usually, when you buy a flight ticket in advance, the price is in tens of euros. Check our FAQ for more info how to get to Kiev, Ukraine from your country.

You can arrive to Boryspil Airport (approx. 30 km from Kyiv) or Kiev International Airport - Zhuliany (directly in the city) and take a Skybus or Uber (just dial toll-free # 9988*) to your accommodation. It is possible to secure a transfer from/to airport for you by CHERNOBYLwel.come, in case of interest please contact our Customer Care

For a trip to Ukraine, most of the tourists don't need visas, just valid passport. Before booking the tour, please check if your passport is still valid. Don't forget to take your passport with you when traveling to Ukraine and also to Chernobyl. 

SAFETY
Traveling to Ukraine is completely safe these days. National departments of foreign affairs warn about these three areas - Donetsk, Luhansk and Crimea. All other parts of Ukraine are safe, just as your country where you come from. Our trip starts in Kiev and continues to the north, towards borders with Belarus. Bear in mind these areas are as far as 1,000 km from the Donetsk and Luhansk & even further from Crimea. In addition to that, you will find Ukrainians very nice and hospitable by nature.

Please mind the fact that in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, for your own safety, you need to always wear sturdy shoes & clothes that cover your whole body (also in the hot days in summer). A Geiger-Muller counter, respirators and a multiple dosimetric controls during the tour are provided by CHERNOBYLwel.come and are all included in price. For children under 18 years of age, entry to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is forbidden. Also, entering buildings in Pripyat has unfortunately been prohibited since 2012. Read more about safety here

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.
