One expert local guide, and a Gone Birding guide who will travel out and return with the party.

Danube Delta- Romania-A magnificent avifauna and a phenomenal unspoiled wild habitat combine to make the Danube Delta one of the most exciting destinations in Eastern Europe. This is an ideal tour for birders and their non/birding partners as they can relax on the floating hotel and enjoy the tranquility of the Danube Delta.

Danube Delta- Romania is a holiday with a difference, allowing the unique possibility of enjoying the superlatives of wildlife exploration while experiencing the beauty of the entire Danube Delta landscape. Boarding our welcoming floating hotel in Tulcea, we start this unforgettable journey into the delta. Moving from one hot spot to another. Superb sunrises will delight us in the early mornings, when we'll find ourselves in the most exquisite birding areas of this watery realm. Everyday we'll take motor launch trips into narrow channels. Birdwatching expeditions to willow woods and shallow pools shall reward us with special views of Pygmy Cormorant, Little Bittern, Rollers, Spoonbill, Whiskered Tern and Black Tern, Ferruginous Duck, Little Crake, Penduline Tit, Grey-headed Woodpecker, Black Woodpeckers and Red-footed Falcon. From the deck of our floating hotel we'll enjoy spectacular flights & alighting of the largest European breeding population of White Pelicans, to which we add memorable views of the globally threatened Dalmatian Pelican and the majestic White-tailed Eagle. Delightful walks at our leisure into a couple of traditional villages, seeing how fishermen live and work, will be an added cultural attraction to this wonderful cruise. The evening setting will find us on the pontoon in the middle of the Delta, enjoying excellent fish dishes (caught that day), while watching the spectacle of birds at sunset. A memorable holiday in which we'll gain a fascinating insight into this European paradise!
