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.

The Danube River Delta offers some great wetland habitat, which is filled with a maze of wide and narrow river passageways, marshes, sandbars and reed islets. We took a scenic cruise of the Sulina Arm of the river and had an up-close experience traveling through a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to some 150 aquatic species and over... More

Wonderful sights, thousands of birds, fish and wild animals to be seen in their natural habitat. You can get a boat ride from Tulcea or any other village and adventure in different parts of the delta.
