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, Jupiter factory, bus station, police and fire departments… there are unlimited places to discover and this tour adjusts to your preference.

Not only during the expedition itself, but also while relaxing in the Chernobyl hotel, you will learn new facts about the whole project of the V.I. Lenin Nuclear Power Plant, as well as about the accident that followed. Thanks to experts, for example, some of our tours are accompanied by the former Head of Police dept. in Pripyat: Aleksei Moskalenko, the Deputy Mayor: Aleksandr Esaulov as well as the CHERNOBYLwel.come guide who is equipped with past photos of Pripyat and Chernobyl, you will be travelling in time, back to 1986. You will feel yourself drawn into the communist propaganda and it’s artifacts – buildings, signs, slogans and military machinery, which will be imprinted in your memory FOREVER. 

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


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.

This girl got inspired by the abandoned places of Pripyat and the nature in the exclusion zone. Having visited these places for the first time with CHERNOBYLwel.come, she was looking for the opportunity to spend more time in the zone to reveal all it‘s secrets. The best way to do it was to become a Chernobyl tour guide.
