Itinerary

Day
1-3
Start your journey in one of the most ancient cities of Eastern Europe - Kyiv. Ukraine’s capital, and the former capital of Kyivan Rus is a beautiful and historic city that has played a key part in the nation’s defining moments. Explore its golden-domed streets, visit open air museums, meet locals, and get to know this unique, cosmopolitan city at the heart of Ukraine.
Day
4-6
Discover the multicultural Chernivtsi, full of charm and exciting Bukovinian-style arts. Explore the unique blend of cultures through this city’s cuisine and dance. Step into the spectacular university, and see how rulers lived at the medieval island fortress of Kamianets Podilsky. In the evening, enjoy a performance by the local folk song and dance ensemble, Gerdan! Their raw talent, authentic costumes and Bukovinian style will amaze you.
Day
7-10
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 breath-taking waterfalls, it’s hard not to feel at-one with nature when you inhale the fresh mountain air. This is the land of the Hutsuls, Boykos and Lemkos. We will meet the local villagers, dance the Arkan (traditional Hutsul dance), and eat traditional food seated around one table. Enjoy the open hospitality of these mountain-dwelling people, and experience their simple way of life.
Day
11-14
Explore the ancient city of Lviv. It has many names – Lemberg, the city of Lion, Lvov, – but under any name, Lviv has always been a city of love. Wander the historic city centre, which is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List,taste the best coffee and beer Ukraine has to offer, hide in small authentic cafes and visit the World’s Only Coffee Mine. Lviv truly is a city of a laid-back, café culture where you can pick a spot, relax, and watch the world go by.
