  • Why we love Ukraine

    • Scratch the Ukraine‚Äôs hard and often gritty exterior to find a place of unrivalled warmth and hospitality. For example, you'll stay at an eco-tourism farmhouse in Petrushivka village run by Mikola Cherep, a former member of the Soviet army. He can teach you to fight with a saber, ride a horse and understand the basics of Ukrainian martial arts.
    • Spend your days swimming, fishing, cooking and unwinding in the banya (sauna) before being entertained by Mikola and his Cossack-heritage friends performing acrobatics on horseback after a traditional Ukrainian dinner.
    • You'll get free time to explore Kyiv, capital of Ukraine. Pay homage to the Motherland Monument and St Sofia Cathedral. Visit the Chernobyl Museum and take in an opera or ballet performance.

    Safety information

    We continue to monitor travel advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs and our local partners on the political situation in Ukraine. While travel to some parts of the country (ie. Crimea) not advised, the majority of the country is currently safe and open for travellers and we intend for our itineraries to run as normal.

     

    The situation in Kyiv and western cities has calmed considerably following months of violent protest during which nearly 100 people were killed, though occasional non-violent public demonstrations continue in and around Independence Square, St Michael’s Square and outside the Verkhovna Rada (parliament building). Elsewhere in Kyiv, life has largely returned to normal. You should avoid demonstrations and public gatherings, as even peaceful protests may turn violent.

     

    Be alert to the possibility of street crime and petty theft. Foreigners may appear to be lucrative targets. Don’t lose sight of your credit cards during transactions. If you take the overnight train, make sure your belongings are secure. Where possible, avoid walking alone late at night in dark or poorly lit streets. Keep valuables and cash safe and out of sight, especially in crowded areas, tourist spots, and public transport, where pickpockets and bag snatchers operate. A common scam is to drop a wallet or bundle of money in front of a tourist. The criminal then “finds” the money and asks if it is the tourist’s or offers to share the money with them. If you are approached in this way, you should walk away without engaging in conversation.
