Description of Tour

Day 1 (SA) Arrival LvivArrive on your own by flight/train and transfer to hotel, check-in. Lviv (German also Lemberg) is a cultural metropolis in Western Ukraine with multinational traditions. You will have a good opportunity to explore the city by yourself on the first evening. Dinner, overnight. Board: A

Day 2. (SO) Lviv - Tatariw In the morning, treat yourself to a leisurely morning of coffee and pastries in the city. After lunch, you are already heading towards the Ukrainian Carpathians. You will drive along a picturesque route surrounded by primeval forests and mountains, immersing yourself for the first time in the beauty of this undiscovered region. Towards evening you will reach Tatariw - a climatic health resort, which was a popular holiday resort for wealthy people from Poland and Austria-Hungary. Dinner and overnight stay. Board: FA

Day 3. (MO) Mountain Hike - Chomjak and SynjakToday you're off to the mountains! The Carpathians are an ideal place for mountain hiking: beautiful landscapes, untouched nature, rare animal and plant species. The Carpathians are a paradise for those who like backpacking over longer distances: there are hiking routes for every taste. And of course, don't forget your cameras, because there's plenty to see along the way! The travel provisions will be constantly supplied.Our hiking route for today will take about 5 hours and will take you to 2 mountains: Chomjak (1542 m) and Synjak (1666 m). We start with a walk to the foot of the mountain. From there we start our hike uphill (about 1,5 hours). The summit and the rather steep southern slope of this mountain are covered with huge pieces of rock, covered with yellow and grey moss lichens. On the top of the mountain there is the white statue of Our Lady, and from there there is a beautiful panorama. In good weather you can see Tatariw, Mykulychyn, Svydovets and the mountain ridge Chornohora. After a short break we start descending again, after which we reach the beautiful alpine pasture Baranja. At the edge of this mountain pasture we find a path that leads us over the ridge to the top of the mountain Synjak. This mountain - similar to Chomjak - is covered with numerous stones and partly with bushes. From the top of the mountain you can see the ski resort Bukovel. Having already left 2 mountain tops behind, we start our way back home. On the way we enjoy more picturesque landscapes and at the end of the route there is the waterfall Huk. The final stop of our hike is the village of Schenci. The bus will pick us up there.For a good end of the day, it offers a sauna with local herbal tea. Dinner and overnight stay.

Day 4. (DI) Hike to the mountain pasture Today prepares a fascinating adventure for you. You are in for a trip to Polonyna (mountain pasture) - one of the most beautiful corners of the Ukrainian Carpathians, where you can admire wild nature, rare species of plant and animal life. You will also have lunch in the mountain pasture - hrybna yushka (mushroom soup), shashlyk (meat grilled on the campfire), usvar (juice from dried fruits and berries). All this is prepared for you by a real huzule and at the same time a star chef long recognized by the locals. In the alpine pasture you will meet shepherds with their sheep and you could watch them milking these animals by hand and producing various dairy products directly in the alpine pasture hut. If you wish, there is an opportunity to taste these fresh and delicious organic dairy products on the spot.In the evening, you will descend the mountain pasture and you will have a good opportunity to enjoy a quiet evening in the mountains. At night, when all is quiet, you can hear an enchanting murmur of water.
Meals: FMA

Day 5. (MI) Mountain hike - HowerlaToday we are facing the ascent to the highest point of Ukrainian Carpathians, namely Chornohora mountain ridge. Howerla (2061 m), as the highest mountain in Ukraine, represents a national symbol today and, accordingly, is a very popular destination for excursions. After breakfast we will drive by bus about 30 km towards Vorochta. The starting point for the hike is the Saroslyak sports ground in the middle of a nature reserve, located about 15 km from Vorochta. Walking time - 2 hours. The path is marked and leads uphill through the forest. The route leads through all vegetation zones of the Carpathians: starting with coniferous forest, ending with alpine pasture. Here rises the river Pruth, which far away becomes the borderline between Moldova and Romania and is one of the largest tributaries of the Danube.The breathtakingly beautiful panorama of the Eastern Carpathians will reward you for all your hardships. The duration of this hike is about 6-7 hours. Travel provisions will be constantly supplied.
