A helicopter tour with is the ‘crème de la crème’ of all Chernobyl experiences. A flight lasting 2 hours approximately, in a comfortable and safe helicopter will give you a totally different perspective of the Chernobyl Zone, it’s nature and abandoned places, as well as the power plant and new sarcophagus. The delightful bird’s eye view is just the beginning of what will surprise you. This ‘air-taxi’ will take you to forbidden places such as the Buryakovka or Roscoha machinery ‘graveyards’ where you will be able to see the kilometer-long rows of abandoned machinery which, were so helpful in the first weeks and months after the Chernobyl accident. A low–altitude flight around the Chernobyl-2 radar will give you a chance to capture this last huge Soviet radar standing on Earth in its full beauty, glory, and ‘mightiness’.As a bonus, we will fly also to check the Mezhgorie and Kyiv city! And of course, you will have time to explore it on the ground for 1/2 days in Chernobyl.
