Cultural Landscapes of Western Ukraine

8 Day Tour, from £1295 per person
This itinerary provides the perfect introduction to lesser-visited Western Ukraine, delving further into the country than a visit just to the capital. Starting in the former Hapsburg city of Lviv, journey through the Carpathian mountains on an 8-day private tour to visit bustling cities and small local villages for a taste of daily life in the rural Ukraine. 
 
Learn more about Ukrainian history and culture on a trip that routes through forested mountainous landscapes following the Dnister and Prut Rivers, see ancient castles and picturesque wooden churches, spend time in Yaremche, Chernivtsi  and Ternopil, as well as the impressive Pochaiv Monastery.
