A truly unique tour in Ukraine, built on smaller groups to give a more intimate and detailed Chernobyl exploration as well as plenty of opportunities for photography.

The tour visits the exclusion zone, including Chernobyl (industrial area), Pripyat (the main residential town), and other villages. The guide takes you to check out one of the biggest radars from the cold war: Duga 3, “The Russian Woodpecker”. You then take a walk in Pripyat, visiting an amusement park that was never officially opened,  a local school, kindergarten, apartment blocks that were quickly evacuated, sports complex (swimming pool), and the reactor No.4 sarcophagus.

Like our 1 day tour, you will go around Pripyat like a local visiting all available services, like the Music School, the Cinema, Ecological Laboratory, Hospital, Cafe, Super-Market, Post Office, Police Station, villages next to Duga and the Reactor No.5 & 6 Cooling Tower. (Some of the places might not be available, but there is always a different one to check).

No other company offers this type of tour for such a low price. You will have 1 night accommodation at one of the hotels of the exclusion zone, sharing a room with a friend or another member of the group, and starting the next day’s sightseeing as early as possible, usually at 09:00AM.
