The Small Canyon of the Crimea stretches along the Black River for 12 km. Full flowing river changes to quiet backwaters along the way. River ledges, rapids and waterfalls take turns with flood plains encasing small rocky islands and shadowy banks. Open spots on the banks are covered with old Crimean junipers, shadowy beech trees shelter green ferns. When sunny, the fast waters of the Black River splash over heated rubbles, with rainbows glittering over them. There are plenty of safe deep baths in the canyon, and the water in these “tubs” is warmer than in the Grand Canyon. Though beware of the flow, the Black River is the fastest in the Crimea. Summer warm months are good time for hiking in the canyon. Hikes without a guide are not safe in the Small Canyon due to abundance of various trails, some of which may appear to be either quite challenging or undoable.
I am back after enjoying the Ukraine trip - safe and sound and really missing the sights of Ukraine.
On the whole, the trip was very good and fantastically organized by your esteemed firm. All the hotel bookings were fine and the Kiev airport pick up / train tickets were nicely arranged.
I want to thank Unipress / you (Igor) for overseeing and planning the minute details.
Also a big thank you for the Visa Support Letter - getting the Visa issued was no problem on my Indian Passport in London.
I enjoyed Kiev and the other cities especially Lvov. Since i missed Odessa and Yalta, maybe next time in future i will plan to see those cities.
Hoping to do business with you in the future.
Do stay in touch.!!!
Many thanks and kind regards,
