Contamination Zone – Specialists in tours to Chernobyl & Pripyat


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 ratingA great tour of Chernobyl you won't get any better! Brilliant trip, we had four days in the zone with sasha our guide. We got to see everything we wanted with Sasha giving us all the rich history of the zone. I would recommend Contamination Zone 100% if you want to learn about the history of Chernobyl and the surrounding areas, a great laugh and took some amazing photos.
