Living (in Bucharest) 250km away from this nature's wonder, allowed us to visit it quite frequently. Amazing sunsets, great sceneries regardless the time of year. Countless of bird species, pure wilderness, though safe. Available for all kind of budgets and expectations, from 5 stars hotels to camping. Better to plan and book in advance if is to come in August,... More

If you are in the area you must take a boat trip to the Danube Delta. It's spectacular. Tip: Bring antimoasquite spray.

Danube Delta is a must see place in a lifetime, Is useless to describe, you must see it, feel it, hear it. It is a place where I experienced some of the most spectacular sunsets sitting in a small fisherman boat or standing on the top of a cruise ship. By the way, there are plenty of such ships -... More

We were part of a group from a cruise ship that took a cruise in the Danube Delta. The Delta is a fascinating area to see. There are many channels with a wide range of wildlife that can be seen at certain times of the year. Unfortunately, we were not there when the wildlife was (October). Outside of a few... More

We took a ticket for the tour in a small private boat tour sharing with another family of four. It cost 70 RON per person (about 15 €). We sailed four hours very nice, where we could see several delta landscapes and photograph many birds.

Probably one of the best places in Europe to see wildlife, especially birds. It's very remote, which has its pluses and minuses, and you need a few weeks to see it all - but I would highly recommend a visit here. It's absolutely beautiful, especially during migratory seasons.

It was the highlight of our trip. The best way to explore it is to rent a small boat. We rented our boat at Mahmudia -small village at the south canal (you can get there by the road). We rented the boat at Hotel Mon Jardin - the clerc in the reception gave us all the information, the boat was... More

In a small, very slow, boat we meandered through narrow channels lined with grasses, trees, and lily pads. I must admit I was expecting see thousands of birds and perhaps some four legged wild life. Literally after the first forty minutes we saw four birds. When we got to the mouth of the delta we did see more wildlife: large... More
