Winter tours FAQs
Is Ukraine a good place to visit in winter?
Ukraine is sure worth visiting any time of the year. If you are interested in winter activities, there is plenty of opportunities for all kinds of skiing in the Carpathian mountains. Winter Christmas holidays are also a perfect time to experience Ukrainian culture and traditions.

Any season is good for such trips. Christmas time is one of the best periods to experience Ukrainian culture and traditions in the countryside, especially in the Carpathians.
Would it be possible to go Helicopter Skiing in the Carpathians?
Ukrainian Carpathians are around 2000 m at highest, thus extreme skiers may be delivered on top of a mountain by a snow truck.

Dan Ryan, USA, Family tour
“I had just the most fantastic time! The trip was everything I hoped- informative, interactive, fun and educational. It was an honour to be hosted in Ukraine by such friendly, generous and passionate people. I felt at home and really learned a lot- from customs, and how to throw a pot, to history and cooking and current politics. It was a rounded, awesome adventure!”
