Tours to Chernobyl Zone

 

CHERNOBYL ADVENTURE team members worked as the official Exclusion Zone guides for more than 5 years. And they got despair. Ordinary tours that follow linear scenario and consist mostly of the official information, are way too far from the interests of nowadays visitors. That’s why we have created different tours, good both for the beginners and the experiences visitors. 
 

By traveling with CHERNOBYL ADVENTURE you will not only see one of the most closed places on the planet but will also learn a lot of interesting facts about the life of Soviet people, nuclear disaster, and the wild nature of Polesye region.
