Briefly about climbing Hoverla and Petros

Our hike to Hoverla and Petros for 3 days will be an exciting adventure for you in Ukrainian Carpathians. In this short period of time, we tried to squeeze in the most intense programme, but at the same time did not go beyond the reasonableness and physical capabilities of ordinary tourists. During the tour we will conquer the most popular and beautiful peaks of the Ukrainian part of the Carpathians – Hoverla (2061 м) and Petros (2020). We offer tourists a choice of two routes for this tour. One of them, which is laid through Lazeshchyna, is simpler and easier. The second one is a little more complicated, but more interesting, and starts in Kvasy village or village Yasinia.

Please note: We also organise two-day tours with conquering Hoverla and hiking to Lake Nesamovyte. More information about these tours and their dates can be found at link.

All the tourists return home pleasantly tired, but full of energy and positive emotions 🙂

Plan of climbing Hoverla and Petros

Despite the fact that Hoverla is the highest among the two-thousand-metre peaks in Ukraine, climbing it in summer is not difficult for beginners. Even the elderly and children are quite capable of making the climb. No wonder why Hoverla is such a popular destination for tourists in Ukraine. Hoverla is as sacred to Ukrainians as Fujiyama is to the Japanese. Every self-respecting Ukrainian should conquer the summit of Mount Hoverla at least once in his or her life.

Day 1

Ivano-Frankivsk – Kvasy or Lazeshchyna – the foot of Petros

After meeting the group at the railway station in Ivano-Frankivsk, you will first meet the instructor. Then the food will be distributed among the group members. After all the organisational aspects are completed, we will head to the starting point of our hike in a comfortable minibus with smiles and high spirits. This three-day trip through the Carpathians will start from the picturesque Transcarpathian village of Kvasy. This village is famous for its unique natural sources of healing mineral water. Immediately upon arrival in Kvasy, to quench your thirst, we will definitely taste the local mineral water, which retains the maximum concentration of nutrients when leaving the source 🙂 Next, we will hike uphill to the Menchul meadow. Our way to the meadow will pass through a picturesque beech forest. Upon reaching the meadow, we will set up a tent camp here, which will become our shelter for the night.

Day 2

Climbing Petros

The second day of our voyage will be dedicated to conquering the fourth highest peak in Ukraine – Mount Petros. Our way to it from the village of Kvasy will pass through picturesque meadows with a gradual increase in altitude. After we reach the ridge, we will move along it, admiring the incredible views of the Carpathians until we reach the very top.

From the top of Mount Petros, the entire Chornohora ridge in the palm of your hand. The main pearl of this necklace of magnificent mountains is the highest peak in Ukraine – Hoverla. It is very close to Petros – only 9 kilometres away. Hoverla will be the final point of our hike. Meanwhile, at the top of Petros we will make a small halt for a photo shoot, a meal and admiring the beautiful nature. All travellers should take into account the fact that the weather on Mount Petros is extremely changeable. Let’s believe in our luck and that we will be lucky with warm, clear weather during the climb. At the end of the second day, we will go down to the bridge between Mount Petros and Mount Hoverla, where we will stop for the night. This place is extremely rich in blueberries during the season.

Day 3

Climbing Hoverla (2061 m)

Finally, the most anticipated third day of our hike, dedicated to conquering the highest peak of Ukraine – Hoverla, has arrived. Despite its mighty appearance, Hoverla is not difficult to climb. The top of the mountain is always crowded, with large crowds of tourists. We will be at the very top of Hoverla for about half an hour, which we will devote to philosophical contemplation of the surrounding Carpathians and small villages, while making an incredible photo shoot. In good, clear weather, you can even see the Romanian part of the Carpathians with its high peaks from Hoverla.

At the end of our hike, we will go down to Zaroslyak, where we will take a transport that will quickly take everyone to the city of Ivano-Frankivsk. Only when we return home will we realise how beautiful and intense this hike was!

Changes to the programme

The team leader has the right to make changes to the route based on weather conditions, condition and wishes of the group.

Weather conditions

It often rains in the Carpathians during the warm season, including on the territory of our route. Therefore, you should always be prepared for the vagaries of the weather and take a raincoat with you. In addition, strong winds often rise in the mountainous areas and there are sharp temperature changes during the day: from heat to significant coolness. Most of the rest stops and stops along the route are at a considerable altitude. Therefore, in the evening and at night it can be quite cool even in the middle of summer. So don’t forget to pack a hat and gloves for your trip!

In addition, do not forget about your health. To avoid problems during the climb, remember that you should not have any diseases that are incompatible with hiking in the mountains.

Equipment required

Dear tourists, when you read our list of equipment, please keep in mind that it is compiled taking into account the fact that we will go on a hike in the summer. If you book a tour in spring or autumn, you should pack more warm clothes. In this case, you should consult with your manager.

If you are going to the mountains for the first time, it is better to borrow equipment from friends or use our rental service in Ivano-Frankivsk. It is after the first hike that you will be able to understand whether the mountains will become your new exciting hobby. And after communicating with experienced tourists and a team leader, you will become more informed about the peculiarities of choosing equipment and learn how to choose it according to your own needs.

When you pack your backpack, keep in mind that at the beginning of your trip in Ivano-Frankivsk the team leader will distribute food for the trip, approximately several kilograms per person. Practice proves that the normal filling of a backpack for a hike lasting from 3 to 6 days is from 12 to 17 kilograms.

More information on what equipment you should take with you on a hike can be found in the video below.

If the tourist’s equipment does not comply with the recommendations on the website, the team leader has the right not to allow him to participate in the hike. This can happen if you take sneakers or rubber boots instead of the recommended hiking boots.

You should take the choice of equipment with maximum responsibility. Your attitude to this important aspect of hiking preparation affects both your personal health and the comfort of the trip for the whole group!

In order to protect against the effects of moisture (rain, snow), the things you pack in your backpack should be placed in plastic bags (including garbage bags).

When packing warm clothes (primarily down) and a sleeping bag, you need to approach this issue as responsibly as possible. When dry, they can keep you warm even in the worst weather.

  • Tent – must be two-layered (with an inner tent and an outer tent), with a tent waterproofness of more than 2000 mm and a floor that has a similar indicator exceeding 5000 mm (or even better, 10,000). If you want to use your own tent, you must send a photo or model to the trekking manager. After receiving this information, he will inform you about the suitability of the tent for this trip. In no case should you bring a fishing or Chinese single-layer tent!
  • Backpack – for a hike, it is optimal to use a frame with a volume of 65 to 80 litres.
  • Sleeping bag you should choose one with a comfort temperature of +2…+5 °C.
  • Rug, mat – When choosing it, you can take the usual classic Izhevsky, but not the thin one used in yoga!
  • Trekking poles – they will provide an opportunity to relieve the knee joints and serve as additional support.
  • Reinkover – is a cape to protect your backpack from precipitation. However, if you have a raincoat, you won’t need a raincoat.
  • Raincoat or poncho. It is essential to be able to use a rain cover. In this case, you should choose a model with dense polyethylene. However, it is better to take two, as any raincoat can tear during intense movements and movements in the mountains. An even better option would be a poncho, which is a rain cape that is worn with a backpack. A poncho will replace a raincoat and a raincoat.
  • Seat – Foam is essential when hiking to keep you warm and dry at rest stops and in camp.
  1. Lightweight headwear – choose a cap, panama hat, buff
  2. A multifunctional headband (buff) is a must-have. It can be used both as a headdress and to protect the neck and ears from the sun.
  3. A hat – in the mountains with their cool microclimate, a hat is a must-have at any time of the year.
  4. Membrane jacket – provides excellent protection against wind and rain. Alternatively, you can also use a windbreaker.
  5. Membrane trousers – worth taking if you have lightweight single-layer trousers.
  6. Fleece. If you really need it, you can take a sweatshirt, but you should take into account the fact that it is heavier.
  7. Lightweight long-sleeved shirt or synthetic raglan. They will provide excellent sun protection and dry quickly.
  8. 2-3 T-shirts. When travelling in the mountains, it is better to wear a synthetic one, and while staying in the camp, a cotton one is a more convenient option.
  9. Trekking trousers for transitions – lightweight and quick-drying.

  14. A clean T-shirt and shorts/trousers to wear on the way home.

  16. A lightweight dress is a must-have if you want to take incredible photos #dressinhiking
  17. Flashlights/gaiters/shoe covers are optional, but you should take them if you have them.

It is worth using high trekking boots with thick corrugated soles, and even better, they should be waterproof. In summer, good quality trekking shoes can also be suitable, but this option is more risky because they do not fix the ankle, and therefore you should be very careful.

Lightweight sneakers, crocs or sandals – you should take them as a second pair of shoes so that you have something to walk around the camp in.

  1. MSBK – mug, spoon, bowl, knife. Tableware – do not bring ceramics with you in any case.
  2. Sunglasses.
  3. Sunscreen (optimally 50 SPF).

When to buy tickets?
Given the realities of life, it is worth buying tickets in advance. However, don't worry too much about this, as even a week before the start of our trip, you can find free seats on the train. In any case, you should arrive at the Ivano-Frankivsk railway station by 10 am on the first day of our tour. Slight delays are allowed. For the return journey, you should buy tickets for the evening from 20.00 to 22.00. In this case, we will still have time for a walk around Ivano-Frankivsk. But don't forget that you should buy tickets only after we confirm your application for participation in the tour. As for the mechanism of purchase, choose at your discretion either the ticket office at the railway station or the online resources of the Ukrzaliznytsia website.
Where does the group meet?
The meeting point for the tour participants is the waiting room at the Ivano-Frankivsk railway station. The meeting time is usually 10 am. We focus on the last tourist to arrive. Approximately 5-7 days before the trip, you will receive an email with the exact meeting time and team leader's contacts. Do not forget to check your mail, including your spam folder!
What are the climate features?
The weather conditions in the Carpathians are extremely variable. So always be prepared for any quirks and surprises. First of all, you should have everything you need to protect yourself from precipitation in the form of rain (a raincoat, a rain cover for your backpack). Secondly, in the evening, especially at altitude, it is quite cool here even in the middle of summer, so don't go walrusing and be sure to bring a jacket, gloves and hat.
What does a set menu consist of?
During the hike, you will have simple but extremely healthy and tasty dishes. First of all, we will eat cereals and soups.

If you are allergic to certain foods, or simply cannot eat them for any reason, be sure to inform the manager so that he can adjust the menu to your needs. Be sure to bring some pocket treats with you, such as nuts or sweets. Also keep in mind that the appetite in the mountains is much better than at home.

The stated menu is indicative. Each team leader has their own specialities, from which tourists have only positive impressions.

We have good news for vegans. We give them a 5% discount on our products.
What are the contraindications for climbing?
In order to take part in a hike, you must be in good health. Therefore, you should not have any diseases that are incompatible with active tourism.
What is the payment procedure?
We limit the number of group members. To book a place, the prepayment is 1000 UAH. The rest of the money is provided personally to the team leader at the meeting.
