The Danube Delta is an amazing well protected area with a dazzling amount of bird species as well as amphibians. There are many different ways to visit the huge delta. From Tulcea you will easily find day trips into the delta.

Danube Delta is included in Unesco World Heritage. It is an amazing land - old and wild. Over 300 species of birds are the paradise for birdwatchers. Best time to visit Danube Delta in from middle of May to July. All the birds are coming home from Africa. An amazing show. Advice: take boat rides there. I preffer Sulina City.... More

It is a huge natural reserve where you can admire all kinds of wildlife, especially birds. Pelicans are the symbol of the Danube Delta. Take a small boat and let you take into the labyrinth of small canals and lakes and you will see something you never have seen before.

I was a week in Sulina. It is very nice to combine beauty Delta and the Black Sea. The beach is not designed and not many tourists. You can enjoy the peace and beauty of places. Delta is unimaginable beauty. You really tried local cuisine and fish preparations.

This trip, departing from the Delta Hotel jetty complex in Tulcea, was billed as a birdwatcher's paradise, an unspoilt natural haven on a relaxing boat trip along the backwaters of the Danube Delta. Although the day was enjoyable enough...it was far from this...so lower your expectations. This company organises larger groups of tourists to explore the Danube Delta, undoubtedly a... More

It's the only place where you can forget about civilization and blend in the beautiful wilderness. Great boat trips along the canals, bird watcher's paradise, tasty fish food, Letea forest with its wild horses. Sulina would offer a great position for staying cause you can access most of the delta on the canals, or you could lay on the beach... More

This is a MUST. As the title says, it's the last virgin delta in Europe. You'll enjoy the fish food, the bird watching, etc. Most wild and fascinanting scenery i ever encounted. It's a MUST for sure

I have been dreaming of visiting this magnificent area for a long time. Today I had the chance and we all loved it, even my 6 year old daughter and my 70 year old father in law. Through our hotel we booked a 10 seat slow boat for a 6 hours trip , lunch included at a fisherman cottage, for... More

Sulina is a combination of modern and savage:) You can see where the Danube is flowing into the Black Sea. There you can see why the Black Sea is named like this. Lovely, lovely, lovely

The Danube Delta is a haven for wildlife. The water birds abound and the views of the iconic White Tailed Sea eagle are impressive, just flying overhead. We saw lots of butterflies and dragonflies whilst on our floating hotel or in the smaller boat which could get up the smaller channels. There are also mammals such as the otter and... More
