One-day tour to the Belarusian exclusion zone. We will visit Polesie State Radioecological Reserve. Here you will learn about the real consequences of the catastrophe at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Moreover, we will be amazed by nature diversity caused by the absence of human intervention, examine the radiation background with an accompanying guide.
The main objective of our trip is to get acquainted with the activities of the Polesie State Radioecological Reserve. And, of course, to learn about radiation contamination issues with the scientific staff of the reserve. In addition, to monitor the flora and fauna of the territories where human activity was almost completely terminated. You will be surprised how quickly nature has recovered. For instance, for 30 years of human absence, the reserve’s territory was inhabited by the Przhevalsky horse. The number of bison here is one of the highest in Belarus. In addition, thanks to the ban on hunting in the exclusion zone, the number of wolves and ungulates has also recovered.
Our route is built due to the lowest dosimeter indicators, which makes our stay at this territory safe. After that, we will visit the resettled villages and the Pripyat river, to whose shores abandoned boats are still moored.
The reserve is a territory with a particularly high status of protection. It has a checkpoint system, so you can only visit the exclusion zone as part of an organized group.
