Western Ukraine: Discover the Hidden Countryside and Culture

Tour Description: Guided

A popular Polish drinking song laments, "The lush green Ukraine I dream of and long for day and night lies far away." But now Ukraine isn't all that far away. Our Ukraine tour fills a gap in the world of cycling tours; no other cycle tour operator offers this destination.  Now tourists on two wheels can also discover the Ukrainian countryside for themselves! 

Why cycle through Western Ukraine?

  • Because it is the only country in central Europe that has not yet been discovered by cyclists despite its numerous historical monuments and splendid landscapes.
  • Because there is already a tourist infrastructure in place. Not only the big cities but also smaller areas have decent new or renovated hotels of good standard.
  • Because cycling in Ukraine is simple and relaxed. Even the main roads have little traffic and the side roads and paths are practically free of cars.
  • Because the visa formalities are uncomplicated and EU-citizens, as well as US-Americans and Canadians do not require a visa.

So, come join us! We have an ideal 10-day program from/to Krakow covering highlights of Western Ukraine such as the Carpathian mountains and the Dniester River Valley as well as places of cultural interest such as Lviv, Chernivtsi and Kamianets-Podilskyi. We follow the course of the Dniester from the Carpathians to Podolien. And where distances permit we will be cycling between the historical cities. Apart from the first and last days, only one bus transfer will be necessary during the cycling legs of the tour. 

Please note: Western Ukraine shares it's border with Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary. This tour takes you through parts of Ukraine that are stable and safe, far away from the current areas of unrest on the eastern border.
