This is a place you have to see in your lifetime. It is really like no other, with spectacular water channels, where birds find shelter. Go there early in the morning while birds are still sleeping, take time to stroll across channels, eat in family run business, it is an experience you cannot find anywhere else.

We had a four-day stay in the Delta and I didn't want to leave. It seemed entirely removed from the troubles of the world, and travelling around in a small boat each day was a great way to see a huge variety of lakes and waterways, with all the different plants, trees and birds that live there. We also saw otters, terrapins, and frogs on the many water-lilies, which made the most incredible racket at night. We were also lucky enough to be there and see the mayfly bridal dance one evening. We stayed in Mila 23, which had the feel of a happy place to live, lining one of the Danube waterways and relying on boats for much of their livelihood.
Excellent place for birdwatching, although I would recommend a specialist tour for this, as spotting the birds in this habitat seemed to be harder than I have found elsewhere!

We had a fantastic stay in Danube Delta! Letea village and forest are definite must-sees! I recommend having the traditional fish dishes in Sulina or Letea. You will for sure receive the freshest fish and enjoy the preserved biosphere. We went in summer time which can be a bit tiresome with high temperatures and humidity level, but we definitely enjoyed it!

If you love fishing, viewing birds, and the wild environment, this is a very good choice. It is not cheap, usually, each speed boat trip will cost 20 USD/ person. The food is also not cheap and there will not be a lot of options.

I went with Ibis tours on the Danube delta and chose them because their website was very informative and gave a detailed explanation of the trip. Although we weren't many people on this particular trip on the day, due to some unknown and unusual occurrence, it was still held and we ended up being on a private tour which we enjoyed to the full . Cristian was a perfect guide and gave us so much information. The boat travelled at slow speed (compared to others) to give you time to take in the view and notice the wildlife. The shade of the boat was very useful and when the tour finished 7 hours later it was hardly noticeable how time had flown by, such was the fun that I had. I actually also went on a speedboat tour with another company and can't choose which was better as they are so different although they are both exploring the Danube delta which is a must for at least once in your lifetime.

10 hour boat turn turned into 12 with many stops, tons of sights to see and an incredible guide. Lunch stop in Letea even included a vegan plate for me & my husband. Excellent day of exploration.

As an angler for me the Danube Delta is the "non plus ultra" in terms of sports fishing and I go back there as often as I can ... it is 900 km from where I live so it is quite a trip, but once you got there you realize why it is worth to spend 12 hours in the car driving there. And I go twice/year for the past 5 years ... this was my 9th trip in a row.
It is very difficult to try to put into words the beauty of the Delta, it is not something that can be easily captured, for me is mostly about 2 things , the fishing and the people you are spending your time with while you are there.
The beauty of nature is stunning - the mix of canals, floating rush islands, home to so many birds, the fish splashing around ... well all this you have to see and experience for yourself. I will not "re-write" the reviews I made about this place I will simply say: GO AND SEE for yourself.

The most beautiful part was of Romania. I stayed in Crisan at Stuffino Crisan family owned location. I cannot say but great words both about these people and the entire area. If feels surreal, unique place in Europe , flora and fauna like nowhere else.

If you were in the Danube Delta - you will return as often as you can (for me its 2/year) - if you never been to the Delta you shall place it on the top of your list for the upcoming year/years.
It is a truly magical place - mostly untouched by the hand of men - with small fishermen villages scattered in the seas of rush and reed. People are warm and serene with a certain sobriety that comes from the centuries of hard work to earn a leaving on the waters of Delta.
I'm going for angling - for any angler this can be a true "El Dorado" , of course don't expect monsters - however from time to time surprises can occur - but if you want to have a good time for sure you can. The local fishermen can be hired as guides also - but you have to keep in mind they are used to nets not rod and reel so the productive spots you need to discover yourself.
If you are not interested in fishing - well there are a myriad of birds - swans, pelicans, White-tail Eagles , etc. so for bird watchers it is also the greatest place in Europe to be!
Landscapes - the waterways of the Delta - the channels are beautiful , the lakes with the yellow and white water lily's are simply beautiful and the 2 mystical place the woods of "Caraorman" (with the wild donkeys on the streets of the village) and "Letea" (with its wild horses roaming free the sandy dunes around the forest) definitely worth visiting.
And not least - you will eat fresh water fish (for the majority of you this could be a premier, however I assure you this people know how to prepare it!).
Go and see for yourself ... it is so much more to it that I can put in words here.
