A great birding site but wonderful for any nature lovers. Vast open landscape of rivers, streams and lakes, with floating hotels available, departing from and returning to Tulcea. We used Ibis Hotel and Houseboat, but other operators are available. 'Lonely Planet' did a piece very soon after our group's visit which posted was on MSN.

Loved it. We spent three days on diverse sightseeing expeditions including a hearty meal in a local home, cooked by the grandmother!. A heaven for river and lake fishermen, bird spotters and photographers! Avoid the mosquito season, or get good repellant!

A highlight of not only my trip to Romania but also of all of Europe. Pure nature The Danube just widens and relaxes to support a huge delta, with alleys, channels, waterway and lakes, before it pours in to the Black Sea. Extreme serenity. I disembarked for Tulcea. You can choose any of few end points to stay in dependenin... More

A vast area, with great bird watching locations. Watery channels, lagoons, reed beds, but no roads, bridges nor cars. Use a hotel boat to gain access to the best sites.

Great for nature, diversity of birds, plants, canals. Very good touristic attractions, nice food, various choice of fish. Great for birds watchers. Not the greatest transport possibilities but it is worth the effort to go there and discover a hidden corner of Romania that can change overall idea about what this country has to offer.

A huge and special wetland, criss-crossed by a network of channels of differing width and depth and hence navigable by boats of differing sizes. Our 'flotel' (occupied by us for the delta section of our Naturetrek tour) was towed around the larger channels by a powerful tug, and a smaller day boat took us exploring some of the smaller channels....

Our boat trip to the delta from Tulcea was organised by a friend. Once you leave the main Danube for the smaller tributaries you can see a variety of wildlife throughout the delta including storks, egrets, herons, grebes, swans, cormorants and kingfishers. Our friend also booked, via the boat owner, lunch for all of us in a secluded part of... More

The hamlets and villages in the delta have been and still are inhabited by an extraordinary variety of peoples and ethnic groups - Romanians, Turks, Bulgarians, Old Believers (from Russia), Greeks, Gipsies… all living together in peace - an example to inspire the rest of Europe and beyond. There's an ethnographic museum at Tulcea (unfortunately closed on the day I... More

One of europ's most beautiful river delta's with many many waterways, and no asphalt roads (only some paths if you have a tractor). Fish, birds, silence, NATURE.
