Introduction

“Top of anyone’s list who is interested in Soviet history, urban exploration or dark tourism, is the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. So for me, the day I went on a Ukrainian winter adventure was the most exciting I can remember. I’ve seen photos and read about the history of Chernobyl, but it took my breath away. The truth of the accident is more harrowing, the site much bigger, and the buildings left behind more incredible than I’d imagined.

 

I setup the first Explore trip to Chernobyl in 2017 and the original departures sold out within just three days! Since then many Explore staff and hundreds of customers travelled here to see the Reactor Number 4 container, Pripyat city, and the massive Cold War radar and to have the experience of meeting someone living inside the zone. 

 

If you want to discover a place like no other, then Chernobyl is for you.”
