Obviously, the final program will be made according to the wishes / needs of participants but the proposal looks like this:

The program is as follows:

Day 1: We will wait for you at Port Aval – Tulcea, at 16:00 (or an hour we set together). We will travel to Mila 23, check in at the guesthouse, then hold a short technical meeting where we will discuss about our route, Danube Delta peculiarities and birdwatching, boating rules and behavior in a natural reserve.

In the evening we prepared a dinner based on fresh fish.

The trip to Mila 23 is on a very beautiful route, full of birds; the twilight is perfect for the trail toward Mila 23. We will not travel on the Danube but on small canals and wild lakes, constantly looking for new subjects to observe. The transfer take 2-2,5 hours.

Days 2-6 – Our trip into the Danube Delta will begin early in the morning, before sunrise, to catch the birds that begin to feed. After the sunrise, we will return to the guesthouse for breakfast. After breakfast, we will go out on the water again, for our full day tour. We will start looking for birds around Mila 23 village; the trip will be planned according to water level and current information about group of birds in the area. We will travel to different places in Danube Delta, the routes being decided on a day to day basis, depending on weather conditions, water level and fresh information that we have from the field.

After we see the last birds in the dusk, we will start heading back. At the guesthouse, we will be served a traditional fisherman’s dinner.

We will be looking for the stars of these places: Pelicans, both the White and the rare Dalmatians. Of course, we will be looking for any kind of bird, starting with the common Little and White Egrets, Gray, Purple, Yellow, or Night Heron, the agile Kingfisher, the majestic White-tailed Eagle and noisy Coots. We will also look for surf birds or birds that search for food in muddy stretches: Godwits, Spoonbills, Ibises, Ruffs, Stilts and others.

Of course we will not neglect the mammals, we will always seek to find the playful otters, the cautious wild boars, the elegant deer, the funny muskrats or the beautiful raccoon dog.

Day 7: After a relaxed breakfast (9:00 am), this time without sunrise session, we will backtrack our steps to Tulcea, but now, in the morning, we will have the best light for this route.

* If you choose the transfer from the airport with us, we can make a route with several stops in interesting places where we also see several species of birds.
