You do not have to be part of a large group to go on an adventure. Going solo means calling all the shots. It means you decide where to go and what to do. I came back from Ukraine’s tour and wanted to share some wonderful memories. Ukraine is one of Europe’s biggest attractions today. First time travelers do not always think of Ukraine. When you discover all they have to offer, you will change your itinerary. Stratos Jet Charters, Inc., tells us that this destination is being requested now more than ever.

I am going to tell you some of the most popular adventures you can go on. While you may be traveling alone, if you feel uncomfortable with any of the adventures, consider going with a tour group the first visit. This gives you a feel of the experience and keeps you safe.

Kiev is a beautiful location with historic architecture unlike any other.

The latest trend in solo adventures is going green. You can rent a bike in several places in Kiev. You can travel with a group or go solo but makes sure you know where you are going. Pick up a map of the area. You will enjoy the beauty of this fabulous city and have fun doing it. There are levels of difficulty. You need to be a strong biker to go on the mountain trails.

Snow Skiing In Bukovel

If you want to take in the beauty of Ukraine and you want an adrenalin rush, you have to go to Bukovel. There are luxury hotels and spa’s in the mountains. There are ski packages available and there are group tours if you want them. There are different slopes for different levels of experience. There are long and gradual slopes for beginners. You will ski the Carpathian Mountains. Use the super-fast ski lift rises 1370 m. This is the second highest slope in Ukraine.

The Odessa Catacombs

Wherever man goes, he leaves a trail. This is the story of the Odessa Catacombs. Where the city of Odessa sits today was once a major mining site. It was profitable and it was mined for years. When men finally thought they had exhausted the mines, they abandoned them. Today there are tunnels that snake completely under the city of Odessa. They go three levels deep. There are tours you can participate in. This site is a scar on the planet, and it serves to warn us that what we create leaves a footprint. Still, you are missing something if you do not see this site.

Until recent years the opportunity to explore the region of Ukraine and Kiev has been limited. As you can see, this area is a treasure of nature and beauty. The rich history of the area is evident in the beautiful architecture. In the world of explorations, Ukraine is in its infancy. The opportunity to experience the region is now. Do not miss it.
