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.
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!
After arriving in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, we travel east
to the port town of Tulcea, the gateway to the magnificent Danube Delta.
Dinner & overnight in Tulcea.
