Chernobyl Overnight Tour
This is your chance to see all of what Chernobyl has to offer. We’ll have 2 full days in and around Pripyat as well as one night in the exclusion zone!
The tour kicks off in Kiev with a first night bar crawl before heading into the zone. Our contacts in Pripyat mean, we can usually sneak in some secret sites that we are not allowed to blog about! This is an exclusive private tour to ensure we see all.
