Itinerary

Day

Your journey begins with your arrival to Kyiv- one of the most ancient cities of Europe​. The capital of Ukraine, and the former capital of the Kyivan Rus, this beautiful and historic city has played a key​ ​role in shaping​ the past, present and future of this country.

Welcome to​ Odesa: ​the Pearl of the Black Sea. ​This blossoming, cosmopolitan city is a historic Black Sea port, that attracted immigrants from all over Europe as a promising place to find their fortune. These beginnings made​ Odesa into one of the most multicultural cities in Ukraine –you will feel its unique vibe as you wander its eclectic streets, stunning buildings, hear the ​legends​ of neighborhood​ criminals, and indulge in ​the local seafood and Shabo wine. ​We will show you every side of Odessa, from its most iconic places, to its secret hidden treasures.
Day

Chernivtsi is the capital and heart of the Bukovyna region. This multicultural city is an eccentric mix of traditional dance rhythms, rich food, and considered one of Ukraine’s most important educational and architectural sites. Some of the largest waves of Ukrainians emigrated to Canada in the late 19th-20th centuries from Bukovyna and Chernivtsi that some. Its stunning university is an ancient, magical collection of buildings, which has been marked a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has the power to take you back in time as you step through its doors.

Visit a traditional village deep in the Carpathian Mountains, and experience a lifestyle that has remained ​unchanged​ for centuries. Home to sweeping green forests, flowing rivers and ​breathtaking​ waterfalls –it’s hard not to feel at one with nature when ​you breathe the fresh mountain air. This is the land of the Hutsuls, Boykos, and Lemkos – meet the local villagers, dance the Arkan ​(traditional Hutsul dance)​ and ​​share​ traditional food ​​seated ​around one table. Enjoy the warm hospitality of these mountain people, and experience their simple way of life.
Day

Explore the ancient city of Lviv. Also known as the ‘Paris of Ukraine,’ many have fallen deeply in love with Lviv’s quaint charm, cobblestone streets and classic architecture - you will be charmed by this city of love. Take a walk on the cobblestone streets to find the best coffee and beer Ukraine has to offer. Hide away in small authentic cafés and visit the world’s only coffee mine.
