Copy of Train in Ukraine

CNUF is 55!

In honour of Canadian National Ukrainian Festival's 55th Anniversary, we have teamed up with Cobblestone Freeway to bring you this epic tour to Ukraine!
Big, diverse and largely undiscovered, Ukraine is a hidden gem - a nation rich in colourful traditions, warm-hearted people and off-the-map experiences.
Here, you can find everything; from bustling cities, to historic age-old towns; from sweeping golden beaches to the vast green steppe; from its awe-inspiring golden domes to its quaint cobblestone streets and secret mountain villages. Discover Ukraine with us on this hand-crafted tour, and see the old world in a new way with Cobblestone Freeway.

A portion of the proceeds of this tour will go to support the CNUF in continuing their legacy.

*This is a Specialty Tour. See Detailed Itinerary for full information on all inclusions.
