Where to go for the weekend: the best tours in Ukraine for a vacation with family and friends
Don't know where to spend a weekend with your closest people? Not a problem! Visit Ukraine team has taken care of it. We tell you which places you should definitely visit this weekend
Weekends are always associated with relaxation and spending time with loved ones. However, we often face the question: "Where to go for a walk?". Visit Ukraine has made a top selection of places where you can definitely spend an unforgettable weekend.
And yes, first of all, a vacation with your loved ones should be active and interesting, which means that you definitely need to dilute the situation and travel outside your locality. One of the best solutions is a trip to Ivano-Frankivsk.
The tour "Ivano-Frankivsk - the city that is always with you" will give you a fascinating walking tour of the historic part of the city. The tour will start from the largest monument to Ivan Franko, which is located near the Nadiya Hotel. During the tour, you will also be able to see the Franko Drama Theater, the central Rynok Square, the highest point of the city, and other interesting places.
For tourists who want to spend the night in Ivano-Frankivsk (or any other city in Ukraine), we offer the services of the best Ukrainian hotels. You can book a room and get acquainted with the hotel's location here.
If you want to take a break from the bustle of the city and noisy streets, you should pay attention to the "One-day tour: Manyavsky Skite & Waterfall". This tour is imbued with natural beauty and historical sights. The tour is quite extensive and will take most of the day, but during this time you will get acquainted with the architecture of the Holy Cross Monastery of 1611, as well as see the blessed stone and the twenty-meter-high Manyavsky waterfall.
Some may think that a one-day tour will not be enough for a good rest. Don't worry! We have a number of different offers for our clients. For example, the "Crystal Waterfalls of Gorgans" tour will surprise you with a two-day hike to the most popular waterfalls in the Carpathians. These quiet and beautiful places will make you breathe in a full chest of clean and fresh air. The tour is definitely suitable for a family vacation and a weekend with friends.
We have several offers for outdoor enthusiasts. As you know, hiking in the mountains is very useful for health and maintaining body tone. However, in our case, hiking is simultaneously good for both physical and psychological health.
See for yourself:
• "Hike to the Lake Nesamovyte" is a unique opportunity to climb the mountains and enjoy one of the highest lakes in the Ukrainian Carpathians with your own eyes. Nesamovyte is located in Ivano-Frankivsk region at an altitude of 1750 meters above sea level. The beauty of this body of water is indescribable, which is why you have to see it live.
• "Hike to Mount Shpytsi" will give you unforgettable emotions of a real tourist. As part of this tour, travelers will have to climb to a height of 1863 meters. At this height, you will be able to see giant stone mounds of natural origin, which resemble either pitchforks or spears. The spires look like mighty giants, which, with the subalpine meadows spread out below, add to the mystery.
• "Hiking to the Vojvodyn waterfall" will make you see a real miracle of nature. The melodious murmur of water attracts the human eye. With every minute of staying near this waterfall, the soul is filled with harmony and tranquility. It seems that you can watch the water flow forever. The Carpathian waterfalls are very picturesque and breathtaking. But there are some that nature itself has carefully hidden from the human eye.
Please note that during any trips or hikes, each of us must take care of our safety. In order to fully surrender to the rest and not think about unnecessary worries, we recommend that you take out an insurance policy that will help you feel safe throughout your trip.
