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.
Specialising in private trips for photographers, film crews, and people who want an extra special experience, our trips are totally customisable. We regularly have long discussions about your wishes before your trip so we can make sure the day is exactly as you would like it to be. If you have any wish simply let us know and we will do our best to make it happen.
One of the main things that makes us different from other companies is that we don’t make a profit – 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 guides 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 it is the best quality you could possibly book.
Day trip to Pripyat This trip was amazing! We saw lots of fantastic places, we were so lucky with weather, cause we made nice pictures of Pripyat covered with snow. Our guide told us a lot about the history of the Zone itself, how life is going now here. Highly recommend to visit it with Contamination Zone! This company did something I thought was nice, they took food for the stray dogs. I did not see any other company doing that.
Private trip These guys really know the zone! I had been visiting before with another provider, but Sasha was simply amazing and showed me places I had never seen before even in internet photos! I will for sure be using these guys again!
Best day of my life.
I was very afraid to go, but it was definitely worth it.
I was given a good briefing and safety rules were followed very well so I relaxed and enjoyed the excursion. I have never met such an interesting guide ready to answer all questions. Thank you very much, Maria. It was exciting and very informative.
I will 100% recommend this tour operator to everyone I know.
