The Ultimate 2-Day Chernobyl Tour from Kiev
From $323.21
There’s so much to see in and around Chernobyl that it easily warrants a 2-day tour instead of a day trip from Kiev. This small-group excursion includes two days’ touring, hotel accommodations, meals, and more. Tour the Exclusion Zone by air-conditioned minivan: explore abandoned Chernobyl and Pripyat in-depth, see reactor number 4, learn about V.I. Lenin Nuclear Power Plant, and meet locals who have returned here. All possible safety procedures are observed throughout for your well-being and comfort.
What to Expect
Day 1: Kiev–Chernobyl (L, D)
From Kiev, journey to Chernobyl by climate-controlled minivan. Receive handouts, maps, and a respirator, and watch a documentary on the 1986 accident and its aftermath.
Enter the Exclusion Zone via Dytyatky checkpoint and tour Chernobyl before check-in at your basic-but-clean 2-star hotel. After lunch, view Pripyat’s must-sees, such as the Red Forest, school, swimming pool, and amusement park.
Shop for souvenirs and refreshments (own expense) at a Chernobyl store, and finish with a hotel dinner and optional bar meetup.
Day 2: Chernobyl–Kiev (B, L)
After breakfast and checkout on the second day, see the Soviet-era military Duga radar system, and explore more of Pripyat, including its derelict fire station.
View reactor 4 from a distance, feed giant catfish in the cooling pond, and visit nearby Parishev. Meet some villagers who have returned to live in this haunted place. After lunch and viewing more Chernobyl relics, return to Kiev.
Your tour ends at the original starting point.
Please note: Designed for maximum safety, your tour avoids contaminated areas throughout. During your trip, you’ll absorb around 0.40–0.60 rem (4–6 millisieverts) of gamma radiation (about the same as on a 5- to 8-hour flight). Use a Geiger–Muller counter to measure radiation levels, if you wish.

Incredible place, amazing tour and wonderful guide

We (my brother, dad and I) took the 2-day tour, with visit to the actual powerplant. I won't say much about the Exclusion Zone and everything in it, as that was all we could ever have hoped it would be, and much more. However, what...More

Unforgettable and hard-to-get-rid-of experience

They are knowing, friendly, humorous and observant. They contributed invaluably to this visit to a place on earth...More

Interesting place to visit

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The site is fascinating. The only let downs for us - hotel overnight - the noise from the staff and the drivers drinking and smoking outside our room when we were trying to sleep. I had to...More

Excelled our expectations by far

We booked the 2-day tour in order to get a feeling of the accident and the impact it had on peoples lifes but we got much more than that. The exclusion zone is stuck in the year 1986, therefore in Communisms of the Sowjet Union...More
