A hike in the Carpathians is romance! Tents, bonfire, mafia game and more. Soup, borscht, porridge in pots! ABOUT! It is also a unique opportunity to understand that nothing is impossible for a person! This was my first trip and not the last! Thanks to our instructor Inna.

Thanks to the organizers for a high-quality corporate party at Migea. We ordered rafting + team building with delivery from Kiev. Everything was at a decent level - food, program, instructor! I would also like to note the creative approach of the instructors. Entertained to the fullest!

I want to thank all the organizers of the Southern Bug rafting! I liked everything very much. An interesting quest, rafting, beautiful nature, good food and professional instructors.

We went with friends on rafting to Migeya from Odessa. The group is not easy - women and children aged 6-12 years. All without experience. Many were afraid and doubted this trip, but in vain! The instructors found an approach to everyone, they felt caring and a sincere atmosphere. The children were generally delighted. Thanks for a nice stay!

I jokingly called my first trip to the Carpathian mountains "... all inclusive ..." - mountains, waterfalls, gorges, steep descents and ascents, where you can see nothing but your own sneakers. Everything is very rich, fast, bright. Thanks to our instructors - Inna and Stas. You are professionals in your field.

Team building on Khortitsa, 120 people. I don't know how it is possible to organize such a crowd, and even so that they do something in a team. But you did it. ? We left as one big family, with lofty goals and passion. Thank you!

A week in the mountains - out of habit seemed rather difficult. But as a result, I overcame not only fatigue, but also my fears. I discovered new opportunities in myself. Thanks to our instructor Ilya for help and support.

We decided to celebrate the company's birthday outdoors. We ordered a corporate tour of the Southern Bug with a trip from Odessa. We took a rope course from additional options. Well done guys, everything was very professionally organized, no complaints. The set goals have been achieved! ? Thanks to ActiveTravel.





The Paton Bridge across the Dnieper offers the best views of the Ukrainian capital and its Orthodox shrines. Bulgakov called Kiev the best city in the world. Indeed, there is little that can be more beautiful than the Dnieper steep and tastier than the Kiev cake in a small cafe on Andreevsky Spusk. Yes, unless just a cake - and dumplings with cherries, and Ukrainian borscht with donuts and garlic - Kiev temptations are innumerable.

After lunch, you can take a chaise and take a ride along Khreshchatyk as an important master - on weekends it is at the complete disposal of pedestrians and recreational carriages. And after driving a little more than a kilometer along the widest avenue in Europe, you should think about where to go next - to the Lavra, to the ancient St. Sophia Cathedral, built by Yaroslav the Wise, or to the new, by Kiev standards, Vladimir Cathedral, painted by Nesterov and Vasnetsov.

Green tourism in Ukraine is a new direction of recreation, the popularity of which is growing from year to year. It's no secret that the poor environmental situation in big cities, the need to solve everyday problems in business and everyday life lead to stress and nervous tension. For this reason, more and more people are abandoning popular resorts with passive pastime on the beach or near the pool, and prefer to relax closer to nature to enjoy the fresh air, walk in the forest, pick fresh berries and mushrooms, drink spring water and eat natural products.

Active rest in the Kherson mountains.

Green tourism (rural or ecological) is developing in three areas:

  • active recreation in untouched nature during the weekend;
  • temporary accommodation in a tent on the banks of a river or lake and giving up the benefits of civilization - TV, Internet, electricity , vehicles;
  • comfortable rest in a small cottage in the village with the ability to use running water, a bathroom, electricity.

For nature lovers, the Ukrainian desert in Oleshki is suitable.

The main principle of ecotourism is to care for the protection of the environment. This kind of rest is good because it:

  • is available - camping or renting a house in the village is cheaper than renting a room even in a little-known resort;
  • allows you to have fun and interesting time - depending on the location, tourists can ride horses, go rafting, study folk crafts, go on excursions;
  • passes away from the noise of the city and contributes to complete relaxation and recuperation.

The best season for ecotourism is from late spring to early autumn. The Kherson Tourism Center has prepared a selection of the best locations for ecological tourism in Ukraine in 2019.

An incredible video about outdoor activities in the South of Ukraine blew up the Internet:
