Moldova, Ukraine & Romania Explorer

Welcome to Bessarabia, a land so remote that tourism is yet to get a foothold. Escape the tourist crowds on this unique trip to Eastern Romania, Moldova and the Black Sea Coast of Ukraine. From the breakaway republic of Transnistria – where Soviet values persist – to the eerie wastelands of Chernobyl, the site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster, this itinerary showcases some of the least visited sights in Europe. Get ready for an adventure.

  • Spend time in the least-visited corner of Moldova – itself the least-visited country in Europe – in a breakaway strip of land called Gagauzia that highlights the complex cultural and historical diversity of this region
  • Moldova is famous for its wine, so sample the local tipple during a guided tour of Mile?tii Mici, sitting on top of 200km of underground cellar tunnels, making it the largest quality wine collection in the world
