Trip details

Description

Enjoy the comfort of a direct pick-up from your accommodation in Bucharest and depart to one of the most enchanting places in Europe - the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve. The area boasts the third largest biodiversity in Europe and the twenty-second in the world. The maze of canals bordered by thatch, willows and oaks entangled in lianas, offers the perfect breeding ground for countless species of birds, some of them from as far away as China and Africa.

After your arrival in Tulcea, you will get on the boat and start your exploration while enjoying the breathtaking scenery and tranquil atmosphere. The route includes a visit to the River Delta (the part formed by the river) and the Sea Delta (formed by sea). The boat goes with a medium speed allowing you to take a close look at the unique vegetation and birds around.

You will also have an opportunity to get a taste of the traditional fisherman living in the small colourful village of Mila 23, located in the heart of the Delta. You will be served a locally specific meal and drinks at one of the households.
The village is also famous for being birthplace to the 4-time Olympic Gold medalist, canoeist Ivan Patzaichin, who also contributed to the establishment of the Lotka Museum in Mila 23. During the visit, you will get a deeper understanding of the local traditions and history as well as why lotca (dinghy) takes such an important place in the social and economic relations of the Delta inhabitants.
Leaving the wild lakes and channels behind, you will head back to Bucharest both inspired and amazed by the experience.
