The most fascinating place on Earth. Framed by you.

4-DAY photo tour

Four days in Chernobyl? That equals one shift of an office worker in the Chernobyl zone (4 working days and 3 days off). This extra time spent in Chernobyl is a maximally detailed way for photographers to cherish the Chernobyl exclusion zone and Pripyat – their famous and hidden places as well. It will give you enough comfort and time to evaluate every angle and light of a moment captured in time with your camera.

SAFETY

Just a few hundred people every year are able to visit Chernobyl and Pripyat for more days and really cherish the atmosphere which cannot be described in words. The route of this photographic four- day tour is designed to avoid almost all of the places with a higher radiation level, or visit places with a higher radiation (still not harmful to one’s health) that is shrunk to a minimum. This tour is safe; the amount of radiation during the four days spent in the Chernobyl zone will not exceed 25 microsieverts – non harmful dose of radiation.
