The Carpathian mountain range stretches through several Eastern and Central European countries including Ukraine.
The beautiful Carpathian Mountains offer endless sports and recreational opportunities for every season of the year: skiing, horse-riding, mountain climbing, rafting, hiking, biking, etc.
The relatively mild climate, rich nature, beautiful mountain scenery and flair of old traditions cherished by the local population, all make the Carpathians a very popular travel destination among Ukrainians as well as foreign visitors.
Among the most popular Carpathian ski-resorts are Bukovel, Slavske, Yaremche and Drahobrat which are quickly turning into luxurious ski resorts.
Many resorts and SPAs are located within the Carpathian foothills; the most famous is Truskavets with its healing spring waters attracting the ever increasing number of visitors annually.
