SILENCE, HOPE AND A COMMUNIST ATMOSPHERE

A tour for the 1% of the brave ones who have never enough. It redefines what you consider a full-package tour to Chernobyl. Become one of the very few visitors of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone who set foot directly onto the place which changed the modern history of mankind. Now supersafe and only with CHERNOBYLwel.come. 

This ultimate Chernobyl experience, with a start in Kyiv, consists of 2 days spent in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with a (up to) 4-hour safe visit of the (in)famous Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant itself, standing next to the ghost town, Pripyat. Get all dressed up in the white overalls used back in the Soviet Union by the power plant workers to wander around the golden corridors connecting all units,  to see the memorial of Valeriy Khodymchuk – engineer who was never found, to enter the underground safety room, Unit 3 Main Circulation Pump room, Central Control Room and most of all, the Unit Control Room with a chance to press the legendary AZ-5 button, which was pressed too late on that very night of April 26, 1986. Now you are becoming an insider of Chernobyl. One of just 0.1% of tourists who visit the Chernobyl exclusion zone annually enter the Chernobyl power plant itself.

Before leaving the Zone late afternoon, we’ll pass the last of the 7 dosimetric controls (making it the safest tour), just to be sure, that you’re taking back home only good memories. The total dose of radiation received will not exceed 7 micro Sieverts/per day (equal to 7 hours of intercontinental flight), which is only 7 % of the safety level in most Nuclear power plants. Full program of the tour can be downloaded here or below, in the Downloads section.

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, a free ticket to the Chernobyl museum in Kyiv and 1% of your tour price is helping to buy Chernobyl babushkas medicaments.  The Chernobyl Power Plant And Pripyat 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 asking good questions. 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 that you stay safe during your whole stay in Chernobyl. The radiation level in Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is on average only slightly higher than natural background radiation. The radiation level at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant is higher than in the rest of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, and includes a very limited amount of beta radiation. During the 3 hour excursion you will receive less than 1 microsievert of radiation. The total dose of radiation received over 2 days spent in Chernobyl, Slavutych and Pripyat will not exceed 8 microsieverts (4% per day of daily nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to around 7 hours on an intercontinental flight.

Besides our maximum safety measures, CHERNOBYLwel.come will take care of all documents, permits, transport, insurance, dining, qualified guides and some surprises. Furthermore, we will provide the most in-depth, most photogenic, and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed.
