The trip to Chernobyl is a life-changing experience for most tourists. However, you have to understand that for lengthy periods of time you will be in a zone that was affected by a serious nuclear accident and therefore, it is necessary for you to adhere to some special rules and guidelines. You may only visit the Chernobyl zone if you have been granted special permission by the official Chernobyl zone administrators. You cannot visit Chernobyl without this permission and to obtain this you do need our professional services in organising your visit either in a group tour or a private tour (just you/your party).

Our tour itinerary is professionally tailored for each group. Tours do not always stick to the same routes as everything depends on the group members; their pace and preferences.

Please note, some travel agencies give you unrealistic expectations that they are unable to meet because of the time available, however, they will sell it to you. At Chernobyl Trips we always adhere to the itinerary unless there is an unexpected change, made without notice by the Chernobyl zone administrators.

The exact itinerary of each tour can be found by clicking on the tour details.
