Zalissia Tour


Zalissia Hunting Reserve was founded in 1957 on the left bank of the Desna River not far from Kyiv.

The USSR leaders and even heads of other countries used to choose this beautiful corner of untouched nature for their rest. Many communist rulers, including Leonid Brezhnev, Nikita Khrushchev, Fidel Castro, and afterwards state officials of modern Ukraine came to hunt here. Not surprisingly, it was almost unreal for common people to get into the reserve until 2014.

Things have changed greatly since then and everyone can visit Zalissia now. Hurry up to take advantage of this opportunity!

Choose a photo safari in Zalissia National Park to spend an unforgettable day in nature, watch wild animals in their natural habitat and take great pictures for your Instagram account!

Tour Highlights:
Nature and wild animals

Zalissia


A leisurely walk through Zalissia will allow you to admire untouched winter nature in all its glory and enjoy the scents of pine forest. Moreover, you will meet many wild animals who are the main inhabitants of the park. You will see a handsome deer, a timid doe, a bison and a roe deer in their natural habitat, not in a zoo cage. In the warm season, they prefer to live in the forest depths, but in winter they go out to the feeders. Therefore, winter is the perfect time to admire these beautiful animals, feed them and participate in an exciting photo hunt.

Elite horses

Zalissia


The presidential stable with elite horses is the pride of the residence. Many of them are prize-winners of various equestrian championships and exhibitions.

If you wish, you can ride one of these beauties or feed them with apples and carrots.

The Museum

Zalissia


Learn more about Zalissia history visiting the Museum of Nature, which stores historical photos of the park and its distinguished guests, and many other interesting exhibits.

We had an amazing trip to Kyiv thanks to Wonders & Holidays team. This place is not to be missed- it’s magical we will be back! We had such a great driver Vladimir who knew exactly how best to navigate around Kiev with fantastic local knowledge. And Daria our guide was exceptional speaking multiple languages and making our trip interesting and fun. And big thanks to Nick who put this tailored made programme for us the way we wanted and accommodated us on every wish we made to be fit for a little child. We have amazing memories of our 3 days in Kiev! Thank you!

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
