Organized by AEGEE-Kyïv

...'cause UAre natural Profile Picture
It’s your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discover the beauty of Ukraine through a dangerously adventurous mix of sport activities, cultural workshops, nature outings, and, of course, loooots of partying while travelling by the legendary Ukrainian trains.

You’ll get a chance to explore three magnificent cities, enjoy tours in remote urban areas along with sports activities in Kyiv and Kamyanets-Podilsky, and taste the best of Ukrainian cuisine. But the best part where we’ll step from the buzz of the civilization into the wonders of Ukrainian nature will be 3-day hiking and camping in the Carpathians. All of that will be done with as little impact on nature as we possibly can organise.

Kyiv is the current and ancient capital of Ukraine with the long history and lots of opportunities for youth. The city, built in 5th century, is still staying the heart of Ukraine, where traditions and innovations meet together to create the new Ukrainian history. You will see the green city, learn about what happened on the Maidan, you will touch the old and modern history, and will open a new page in your traveling list.

The Carpathians

The Carpathians, the magic mountains, the cradle of ancient magicians, but also – Ukrainian Insurgent Army, the place of power and mysteries. Fresh air far away from the roads, cars, and loud civilization, huge mountains, refreshing rivers and the real Ukrainian culture are hidden in this place and waiting for you to discover them.


Founded on an island, which was created by the Smotrych River bend, Kamianets-Podilskyi has a history, which has formed its diverse appearance. Til today the main sight of Kamianets-Podilskyi is still the Ancient Fortress, considered to be one of the best samples of fortification buildings in Eastern Europe. Massive walls and bastions continue to inspire with their might and majesty. The sacral architecture of the city is no less impressive – it fascinates with its richness and variety of represented cultures. Because of so many historic monuments, Kamianets-Podilskyi gives you the opportunity to dive into a truly medieval atmosphere.


This city is not less beautiful as previous ones in our trip list and of course it has an incredibly interesting places to visit. Ivano-Frankivsk consist of centuries-old history, long traditions, an extraordinary artistic life, and a dynamic economy. It is located in the south-west of Ukraine at a distance of 150-300 km from the borders of Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia. The heart of the city, customary for European towns, is the Market Square, surrounded by charming old houses. The squareʼs architectural ensemble is reminiscent of Lvivʼs, which is why Ivano-Frankivsk is often called "Little Lviv.”
