JUNE 27 - JULY 10, 2006

Arriving and departure dates are flexible if you want to stop over in Western Europe or stay longer in Ukraine.


A variety of airlines fly into Kiev, Ukraine, including KLM, British Airlines, Aeroflot. Most participents choose KLM/ Northwest with a stopover in Amsterdam. Because of the small size of the group we don't meet minimum requirements for group rates.

Airline tickets can be purchased directly from the airline, through your local travel agent or through a ticket discounter like Flight Coordinators at 1-800-544-3644.
