Chernobyl Tours

Chernobyl does not need too much introduction, but it was here in 1986 that the biggest nuclear accident in history occurred, forcing the people of Pripyat to flee and causing death and destruction in its wake. Modern Chernobyl and Pripyat is now the poster child for what is often termed “dark tourism”.

We have been safely taking people into the Zone for 5 years. We tailor make all of our trips, and our contacts in the area means we are often allowed to visit lesser seen parts of one of the most interesting and eerie places on the planet. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and surrounding areas are safe to visit. The levels of radiation on guided tours are relatively small; radiation levels in most places are less than those of being in an aircraft flying at 30,000 ft.

You can join us on a group tour, or travel independently with your own tailor-made itinerary and dates. Get in touch to learn more!
