Helicopter tour with ChernobylPhoto.com is the “crème de la crème” of all Chernobyl experiences. Approximately one hour flight in a comfortable and safe helicopter will give you a totally different perspective of the Chernobyl Zone, its nature and abandoned places, as well as the power plant and new sarcophagus. The delightful bird’s eye view is just the beginning of what will surprise you. This “air-taxi” will take you to forbidden places such as the Buryakovka or Roscoha machinery “graveyards” where you will be able to see the “kilometer long lines” of abandoned machinery which was so helpful in the first weeks and months after the Chernobyl accident. A low –altitude flight around the Chernobyl-2 radar will give you a chance to capture this last huge Soviet radar standing on Earth in its full beauty and “mightiness”.

Very few people every year are able to see Chernobyl and Pripyat from a bird’s eye perspective. This unique experience will bring you the atmosphere which cannot be described in words. The route of this photographic helicopter tour is totally safe of radiation since you will see the radioactive places from the air; you will not step on the soil, nor be close to radioactive objects. The amount of radiation during the time spent in the helicopter and the rest of the day in Chernobyl zone will not exceed 7 microsieverts – non harmful dose of radiation.
