Contamination Zone – group tours, private tours, and specialist trips 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.

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.

Reviews

Had my second trip to the Zone with these guys and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a unique experience. Very knowledgeable about the area, and willing to tailor the trip to suit us, show us what we wanted to see while offering their own guidance from their wealth of experience. 10 out of 3.6 🙂

5 star ratingExcellent experience in every way I went on a three day tour with Charlie and a two day tour with Sasha and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the experience. The guides are highly knowledgeable about all things Chernobyl and I can't recommend them enough. If you're looking for a private tour of the Zone, Contamination Zone are the guys for you.
