In the last days of February we set out for a bikerafting trip to the majestic canyons and valleys of the Western Ukraine’s Dniester River. We chose the town of Zalishchyky as our starting point, surrounded as it is on three sides by an arc of the meandering river.
What was planned as a four-day self-supported bikerafting tour quickly turned into a fascinating exploration of a neighbouring society, a true parallel universe if you will, and its beautiful human souls.
