Welcome to Contamination Zone


We are more than just a company, we are a non-profit set up to raise money for good causes in Chernobyl. Our team has many years of experience and will ensure that your experience here is the best it can possibly be

Contamination Zone – group tours, private tours, and specialist trips to Chernobyl & Pripyat

Contamination Zone

Group, private, package and specialist trips to Chernobyl, Pripyat and Ukraine.

Contamination Zone is a group of people who are united by our love for the Chernobyl Zone – we spend large parts of our life talking and teaching about the zone because it is so much more than “just a place” or “just a job” to us.

We are a small team with many years of experience in Ukraine, Pripyat and Chernobyl. Some of us have experience in tourism, some of us have experience in transport and logistics, others have experience in planning and office based tasks.

Together, we form a great team that is a pleasure to work with. We are all here because of our love of the Chernobyl zone, we raise thousands of euros every year for good causes in Chernobyl, such as firefighting equipment, monument restoration, dog feeding and more.

One of the main things that makes us different from other companies is that we don’t make a profit to return to directors – the money earned from the trips we run is reinvested in the zone, going to causes such as animal welfare programs, fire fighting equipment and memorial maintenance.

All of our team have many years experience in the exclusion zone so will be able to know exactly the best places to go for your personal interests.

Chernobyl is an amazing place to visit – an unforgettable experience. Let us make sure that your trip is the best quality you could possibly book.

5 star rating3 days tour : one of the best experiences of my life ! We had a 3-days trip in the Chernobyl zone and it was absolutely amazing. Sacha is a very kind, professional and competent guide and Jim has also been present to check if all went well. We were able to see an incredible amount of places - more than I espected - and even the transport was good in a comfortable van. We had a very good time all together. If I come back to the Zone, I would never choose another company than Contamination Zone !
