We have put together a great trip including return flights, a day trip to Chernobyl and a choice of fab Airbnbs.
We usually see trips to Chernobyl for over £200* each so this is a fab price for a 3-night break with tour tickets included too.
Travel duration: 3 nights (longer or shorter stays possible)

We have hunted out 3-awesome Airbnbs with the cheapest one being a gorgeous two-level design studio for under £120 for 3 nights for the whole apartment.
