Meet your guide at your Kiev hotel or railway station and travel by private air-conditioned minivan to Chernobyl.

En route, hear about the April 26, 1986, Chernobyl accident, which devastated the area.

In the 18.6-mile (30-kilometer) zone, pass the derelict villages of Zalissja and Kopachi (deliberately buried to reduce contamination). Stop at the decontaminated Red Forest and Pripyat to see its decaying buildings and amusement park.

View reactor 4, encased in a concrete sarcophagus, and check out the Soviet-era Duga-1 over-the-horizon radar system.

In Chernobyl town, see the monument to Chernobyl’s firefighters. View the fire station and abandoned decontamination vehicles.
Your tour ends at the original departure point.

Note: Please contact us if you don’t receive a letter containing your tour details, including passport requirements, meeting time, departure point, and clothing in advance of your tour. This letter provides official confirmation that your tour is booked.
