If you feel that you aren't prepared to lose comfort but have a desire to be closer to nature, you chose the right way to combine both. Choosing our hiking tours in the Ukrainian Carpathians, you'll see the beautiful views of the Carpathian mountains and stop for the nights in comfortable cottages.
The Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains are definitely the special ones. The tourism has been developed only in some areas. Otherwise it's mostly the wild forests, valleys, meadows and ridges with few marked paths, so venturing on a proper hiking trip you have to take a guide. Locals in the villages usually are friendly but they do not speak any English, so the communication can be a problem.
If you take a guide you'll be sure that you will not get lost, will be able to communicate with local people, and you will have a option to get back safely to the cottage, where you are staying in, in case the weather turns out badly. The Carpathians are not very high (up to 2000 m) but in the case of bad weather they can be quite rough and as any other mountains require good equipment, experience and responsible behavior.
The Carpathian Mountains are really beautiful and we want you to fall in love with them as we do.
