day 1: folk-park "Hutsul Land"
After settling everything up with the hotel you will have the opportunity to take a walk through the resort and visit the folk-park "Hutsul Land", where you will deepen your knowledge about the life and customs of the highlanders of the Ukrainian Carpathians. The complex also boasts a fully-fledged petting zoo, where native, exotic, wild animals and birds live almost in their natural habitat, which will sure delight both children and adults.
day 2: "Bukovel" - Kvasy - foot of mt. Petros
Having our backpacks packed and good mood ready, we hit the road from TC "Bukovel" heading to the starting point of the route. The tour starts in the vibrant village of Kvasy, boasting a natural source of mineral water. Moving up through the picturesque beech forest we find ourselves in the Menchul meadow, then set up tents for the first night. From an altitude of 1200 m above the sea level we'll enjoy the views of the Svydovets ridge and the valley of the river Chorna Tysa. In our encampment we will meet an incredible sunset, having an option of visiting local shepherds for fresh milk.
day 3: climbing mt. Petros
Our next objective is reaching the top of one of the Ukraine's highest mountains - Petros. The traverse will run through the meadows first, then through the ridge, with fascinating landscapes accompanying us all the way. During the stop on Petros we will have the opportunity to take memorable photos and have a snack. From the Petros' very top we will enjoy a spectacular view of the Chornohora ridge, topped by the big jewel - mt. Hoverla. The highest peak of Ukraine seems close (9 km) and that will be our next goal. We'll make a small descent and set up tents on the shoulder between the two peaks. If we are lucky enough, we will be able to savour some blueberry.
day 4: climbing mt. Hoverla
On this big day we will climb Hoverla. Do not worry, the climb itself won't be too difficult. Be prepared for being not be the only visitors: the mountain top will be crowded. We will stay for about half an hour, admiring the surrounding panoramic beauties. Even higher Romanian Carpathians may be visible on the horizon. Then we move down the slope heading to the training camp "Zarosliak", from which the bus will take us to TC "Bukovel".
