«Kvasy village»

In the morning you will meet your guides and the rest of the group at the railway station (main entrance) in Ivano-Frankivsk. There we will get a shuttle bus to the starting point of our hike Kvasy village, which is famous for its mineral waters.

«Hoverla Mount»

The 3d day is the most spectacular day of the trek. About 3 hours hike and we get to the summit of the highest mount in Ukrainian Carpathians – Hoverla 2061m. In clear weather the views here are amazing and can reach up to hundreds kilometers. By the way, the name Hoverla from Hungarian means “snow peak”, as you could see a snow on its slopes almost the whole year round. From the summit our group gets down to the old glacial valley where the Prut River creates the cascading falls. Their general height riches up to 80 miters. Nearby we’ll spend our last night.

Walking time – 5-6 hrs.
