Ukraine & Belarus Chernobyl Double Combo Tour

Ukraine & Belarus

”A fabulous train journey from Minsk to Kyiv including not one but two Chernobyl visits in one tour “

After being the first non-local tour operator to take you to the PSRER – Polesie State Radioecological Reserserve, we, at brutal Tours together with Iron Curtain Tours (a Brutal Iron cooperation), are losing our minds and giving you not one but two Chernobyl visits in one tour: Prypiat and PSRER. And just because we thought you’d like it, we’re adding a little extra, a tour to the ChNPP – Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant worker’s city: Slavutych.
The Brutal Iron cooperation will also promote this tour by railway, a fabulous train journey from Kyiv to Minsk including, we can just not hold ourselves with spoiling our clients, access to ChNPP using the Nuclear Train and crossing the border into Belarus via what is most likely the least used rail border between Ukraine and this country.
