On the route: Synyevydskyi canyon, whitewater, several drops.

The warm climate in the canyon makes this area different from the other in Western Ukraine. The rocks detain solar heat during the summer so that it almost never rains; greenness bloom 2-3 weeks faster in spring. There is a large number of rare plants, animals, and birds in this reserve.
