Full description
Meet your guide in Kiev, then relax on the 2-hour drive to Dytyatki Checkpoint, the main entry point to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. During the journey a documentary about the Chernobyl disaster will be shown, and you’ll make a short stop so that you can use the bathroom, and purchase coffee and snacks. 

Once you pass the police checkpoint and enter the exclusion zone, visit Chernobyl town to see the evacuation memorial, the Lenin monument, the museum of robots, and more. Continue to the Chernobyl Power Plant. Explore the reactor blocks, cooling towers, the new sarcophagus over Reactor 4, and the Prometheus monument. 

Head to the Red Forest viewpoint, then visit the ghost town of Prypiat. See the abandoned amusement park, and wander past the empty school, hospital, and river port. After lunch at the Chernobyl Power Plant workers’ canteen, discover the abandoned military base with Duga Radar Station, before passing through radiation control and returning to Kiev.
