Unique to Regent Holidays - this tour stays overnight in the town of Chernobyl, giving an unparalleled insight into one of the most devestating environmental disasters in human history. This small group tour is a fascinating introduction to Kiev, the pleasant Ukrainian capital, but its main focus is an in-depth tour of Chernobyl, a place ever synonymous with the massive nuclear disaster that rocked the Soviet Union and the world in 1986. To this day, a 30km exclusion zone set in place by Ukraine’s “Ministry of Emergencies” circles the area, and the disaster is still vey real for the great number of people who have been, and are still being affected by its after effects.
Spending two days touring inside the “Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Exclusion Zone,” including one night in Chernobyl itself (in a small hotel built for scientific advisors) we will gain an insight into the complete picture of the Chernobyl story, from the past to the present. This tour also includes a full free day in Kiev for one to explore at leisure.
This tour to Chernobyl and Kiev is limited to just 14 participants.
