Welcome to Yaremche
Stretching for around 10km along the valley of the Prut River, Yaremche (also sometimes known as Yaremcha) is the tourist epicentre of the Carpathians. Along with a blitz of Hutsul souvenir markets and low-grade eateries, Yaremche also offers more accommodation, excursions, hikes and bike rides than any other valley community in the region. The town is an easily reachable staging point for an ascent of Mt Hoverla (join a group or catch a bus to Vorokhta) and is also one of the best places in the Ukrainian Carpathians to strike out on two knobbly wheels – it boasts more bike-rental places than Kyiv. The town itself has few attractions as such, but Yaremche is all about getting out into the natural environment that surrounds it.
