We have just received some exciting news from our partners in Ukraine that it is now once again possible to embark on overnight tours of the Chernobyl exclusion zone. This new development, coupled with recently relaxed entry requirements into Ukraine and the removal of the hordes of tourists that stormed the zone in 2019 after the incredibly successful HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” means there has never been a better time to explore this fascinating area of our planet.
Overnight Tours in Chernobyl
Just a couple of hours drive from the vibrant capital of Kyiv sits the apocalyptic site of the world’s worst nuclear accident. This is a land that is stuck in time where a thought-provoking journey into a Soviet time capsule awaits you.
Our overnight tours into the Chernobyl exclusion zone promise an adventure like no other as you explore shipwrecks, abandoned military bases, gigantic radar systems which once acted as a safeguard against nuclear warfare during the cold war and take in the unique atmosphere of a place where nature has started to reclaim what humanity built and abandoned.
Starting from today these tours can be arranged at any time and tailored exactly to fit your group size, dates and budget. In addition to tours of Chernobyl, we can also arrange for guided tours across all of Ukraine taking in activities such as shooting trips out of Kyiv to firing high-powered weaponry, taking a tank out for a joyride in the stunning Ukraine countryside and visiting a recently declassified Soviet ICBM underground launch base.

Ukraine Relaxes Entry Requirements
From March 2021 Ukraine has relaxed entry requirements to actively encourage tourists to once again visit the country:
- You must have an insurance policy issued by a Ukrainian insurance company or a foreign insurance company that has a representative office in Ukraine that covers health costs related to COVID-19 infection (We can assist you with this)
- Negative PCR test result which was done no more than 72 hours before entry to Ukraine.
These entry requirements apply to everyone regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status for the time being.
Ukraine also has an incredibly easy visa policy with nationals from Canada, the USA and the UK just to name a few all being visa-free. You can check full visa requirements for Ukraine by clicking here.
