Mount Pirs-Dora - a rock “White Stone” The length of the route is 23 km. The highest spot is 973 meters. Height - 586 meters. Transit time is 4 hours. This is an excellent extreme route from Yaremche, which not every beginner will dare to take. Get ready for tough climbs, elements of the back-country and bike climbing, clay descents, and if you will - even the real rock climbing. All this is waiting for the brave who decide to conquer Mount Pirs-Dora and see the White Stone Rock. The route starts from a highway in the village Dora, close to the turn to the Saint Andrew Monastery. It is better to climb the mountain from the Delyatyn side. You can reach this town through a highway or living zone. Without reaching the river Peremyska, near the chapel, you should turn left. The populated locality is behind. Here you start climbing the mountain: you must rely on the map, pointers and sports intuition. Further on the rise one should expect a flat area, where the road is absolutely smooth. Conquering the mountain will bring unexpected gifts: the opportunity of rock climbing. Wonderful panoramas and stunning grass-clay downhill to Dora with a finish at the starting point.  
  To the Malevo Mountain The length of the route  is 27 km The highest plot is 688 meters Set height - 343 meters Time of transit is 3 hours. Not too short extreme cycling route which experienced cyclers will love. Follow the road from Yaremcha to Delyatyn, then turn right to Zarichchia. Here, in the church area, follow the signs to move right to the forest roads. When climbing the mountain with a protracted but steep climb you can reach almost to its top, where you can easily see the valley of the Prut and the city of Yaremche. Descent from the mountain is quite extreme and technical - by forest roads. But the pleasure is worthy of these efforts - especially if this is the kind of recreational activity that you like.  
Yaremche - Monastery of St. Andrew's Church – “Legend” Recreational Center The length of the route is 17 km The highest plot is 597 meters Set height - 140 meters Time of transit route in - 1 hour Time on foot - 2 hours Very interesting and easy route recommended for beginners. Starts with Yaremche - You should move by the highway towards Delta. Near Yaremche school № 1 (to the left from the road), turn to the right and go down to the masonry (suspension bridge) through the Prut. Go over the river. Here we take the course to the left and move parallel to the river with narrow paved path (on Stefanyk Street), watching signs. Enjoy the clean air, lack of vehicles and local architecture. After a pleasant walk, we turn to the left, to the concrete road bridge. In Dora (Yaremche district) again find ourselves on the central highway. We take the course to the right and right to the left – following the pointers “to the monastery”. Then, always straight – it is practically impossible to get lost here.   Soon the road plunges into the forest. Several easy climbs - and cyclists arrive to Monastery of St. Andrew. After visiting the monastery you can return on the same route, but you can drive a little deep into the forest, where the tourist base is waiting. On the banks of the river you will find many good picnic areas and even areas for bathing.  
The length of the route is 7.3 km Height - 150 meters The time it takes to traverse in - 1 hour 20 minutes Time on foot - 2 hours 40 minutes. This is a short, but busy excursion route that will allow you to visit hidden from the eyes of an average tourist place and get acquainted with Yaremche and Yaremche citizens more closely. Start - on the market, near the main road (Svobody Street) and the central drugstore. The first part (about 1500 meters) - paved and absolutely flat, lies in a cozy street. After the railroad crossing, the third stage of the route begins - solid, but quite long the rise of the streets of Kovpak and Oleksa Dovbush. Here for the cyclist, it is important to calculate the strength and choose a low gear. The rise as always generously rewards those who overcome it: first, we find ourselves in a fairy-tale spruce forest, and then it looks great in front of our eyes panorama of the whole city. It is worthwhile to relax and take some photos. After the road about 500 m will go smoothly, the descent begins - the return to the city center. The fairly steep slope guarantees the rush of adrenaline, for which the mountain bike is loved so much! Then, equally, we get to the railway crossing, after which there is the starting point.  
  Yaremche - aviary - waterfall “Divochi Sliozy” The length of the route is 6.7 km. The highest plot is 642 meters. Height - 231 meters. Travel time is 1.5 hours. Time on foot - 2.5 hours. The route starts from the railway crossing (market), located in the center of Yaremche. Having overcome 1300 meters of concrete, paved, and then a dirt road, we go to the aviaries. Here you can leave the bikes on a special stand and observe the animals - noble and spotted deer, Carpathian boars. Then we follow the sign “Divochi Sliozy”. Then you have to force the only one on the route a long ascent, waiting for about a kilometer of perfectly equal road to the forest. After a few turns, we fall into the waterfall “Divochi Sliozy”. It is very problematic to approach it - it is better to get out of the bike and to walk the last 200 m. We return to Yaremche in the same way.
  Aviary - community Bahrovets - recreation center “Karpaty” - waterfall “Probiy” The length of the route is 6 km The highest plot is 705 meters Set height - 266 meters Travel time in - 1.5 hours Time on foot - 2.5 hours From the Yaremche market, from where the route begins, you need to go along the railway, guided by the signs. After 500 meters - a large lawn on the river bank, where there is a source from the curative water. It is better to have a good rest here, because the next kilometer of the path gradually rises up. Approximately 500 m farther there is the village of Bahrovets with the wonderful Carpathian scenery. About a kilometer farther there is a small but very picturesque waterfall. After the smooth road, you will need to go on humps again. Almost three kilometers from the aviary, climbs end with a magnificent observation deck at an altitude of 705 meters above the level sea. Then you can rush in one breath with a superb serpentine that leads to the southern edge of Yaremche. But here, it is not necessary to go to the main road: immediately after the concrete bridge, according to the instructions turn left and a quiet path in the shade of trees get to the famous masterpiece of wooden architecture - the restaurant “Hutsulshchyna”. Here you can visit the souvenir market, see the waterfall “Probiy”. For those who do not really like long-distance uplift by ground roads, this route is better to overcome in backward starting from the restaurant “Hutsulshchyna”. Then the climbing will not be very difficult, and on dirt roads, you will be able to speed up when going down.

Learn about the history about the ancient Stanyslaviv (former name of Ivano-Frankivsk) that is over 350 years old! The history is embodied in the unique monuments, such as Sheptytsky Square, Ratusha (city hall), Pototsky Palace, the gallery “Bastion”, monuments devoted to Ivan Franko, Adam Mitskevych, the Armenian Church, and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ (Greek Catholic Cathedral). Get to know Ivano-Frankivsk! We offer the best tours around the city. Every tour is your little research about Ivano-Frankivsk that you are going to enjoy! Stanyslaviv Fortress Originally, the modern Ivano-Frankivsk was meant as a city-fortress, by the idea of “an ideal city” known since Renaissance epoch. There were only three such cities. The architect happened to be Francois Corassini, and his successor was Carlo Benoy. They created the marvelous “star-city” – that was the symbol and the main idea of the medieval ideal city. Stanyslaviv was surrounded by strong walls, there were plenty of temples, and the Ratusha was in the center. It is indeed common to assume that you should start exploring a city with its downtown area – the heart of the city. However, we say that it is better to enjoy the city by walking from the point to which tourists arrive – the railway station – up to the downtown and we can offer you an excellent route! The downtown of Ivano-Frankivsk is formed by Independence Street and Viche Maidan. Here, it is called “Sotka” (or "stometrivka”) by the locals and is a favorite alley of people. Let us take a stroll around the city center. The Shevchenka Street is one of the oldest in the city, as it has been there since the city was founded in the 17th century. A traveller, Ulrich von Werdum mentions that it leads to the Zvirynetska Dibrova (dibrova, if literally, means oak wood), where the Pototskys (family of the city founders) invited guests over and also that was where they went hunting. There were plenty of changes since then: Dibrova has become a field, then – a park, then it changed its name several times (like, Lypova and Shevchenko). There are 44 monuments on the street. It may actually take you 3 hours to complete the entire walking tour around the street. That is a terrific romantic route to the sound of the old trees! The Sichovykh Striltsiv Street is parallel to the “Sotka”. It sort of has a connective function, as this is where the other streets that lead to the small boroughs split.
