Departure to Oleshkovsky Sands.
A trip to Oleshkovsky Sands - the largest desert (at least the largest sand massif) in Europe. The total area of sand is 2100 km2, here you will see 5-8 meter sand dunes ("Kuchugury") and oases with birch, aspen and pine groves and lakes. Kuchugurs are not constant - under the influence of wind, they slowly "crawl" along the surface of the sand arena, changing its landscape.

- make a time travel and visit the green Tavrian steppes, see and hear their inhabitants (lapwings, herons and many other birds and waterfowl),

Moving to a unique geyser source.
Bathing in a geyser spring with hot bromo-iodine healing water.

In the Kherson region, a geyser was opened for visiting in the summer of 2005. Now at the source are equipped three baths - two with hot water and one with healing mud. The water in the source is brown-brown in color from dissolved iodine and is very salty. The geyser temperature is about 65 degrees, in the pool - 45-50 degrees.

In 2008, Askania was named one of Seven Natural Wonders of Ukraine.
In addition to local species it hosts ostriches, bisons, antelopes, wild horses, llamas, zebras and many bird species. More than 200 species of foliaceous and coniferous plants were brought from different parts of the world and planted in the dendrologic garden during 1885 - 1902. About 600 higher plants (both perennial and annual), 16 species of which were entered to the Red Data Book of Ukraine, have been preserved in their primary natural form.
