A journey in the wilderness of the Danube Delta is a must for every nature lover! I only hope my nephews (if there will be any) may see it too...

Really enjoyed our stay in the Delta Danube. There were so many splendid birds to watch in the water and in the air. Our boatman pointed out birds and animals that we would not have noticed ourselves. Traveling through the diverse waterscapes was mind-boggling. Can't remember ever experiencing such glorious boat trips. Can't recommend this place enough. We brought insect... More

In May I spent several days in Tulcea, Romania, in the Danube Delta. Tulcea is a small town that is only accessible by boat, and yet has a number of small guest houses, simple hotels and resorts. If you are interested in a place that is off the beaten path and embedded in nature, I would highly recommend the Danube... More

When I went to the Danube Delta in the second week of May, there were barely any tourists there. Also there were NO mosquitoes! Sadly, because of the lack of tourists, I could only make one "short" 5 hour boat trip into the delta, but it was still very nice and I saw a lot of birds. I used Safca... More

On a par with the Camargue and Coto Donana, but no better in my opinion. Tulcea is a bit of a dump and much bigger than I expected.The main channel of the Danube is basically a canal dug out by French engineers in the 19th century to straighten the meandering river. You have to get off the main track in... More

Great if you are a birder especially on a floating hotel for a few days,lots of birds i think we saw 150+ each day and we saw the rare Dalmation Pelican.the dislike was the cost of wine on the vessel was overpriced for poor quality,not really their fault as the best is exported,but 10E was 3e too much

If you want to get in touch with nature, to get into a natural and wild place, with a lot of wild life to see as well as a wide range of plants and flowers, that this is the place to be. The peacefulness of the place, the sounds and smell, the view and the remote and small canals will... More
