Day 1 – Departure time from Tulcea, from Port Aval – Tulcea, is at 16:00. In order to complete the payments (if any) and to communicate regarding the boat with which you will go to Mila 23, we will be waiting for you at our embarking point, at 15:30. The cars can be parked in the Port yard, in a private parking, at a cost of 5 euro/day/car (the parking price is not included in the tour price).

From here we will go to Mila23 Village. We will travel by boat, through one of the most beautiful parts on Danube Delta, searching for birds all the way, until we arrive in Mila 23 Village. Usually, the transfer takes 2-2,5  hours but, if we have many birds to see on the way, it may take longer. During the trip, we will have enough time to talk about the program for next day, details about boat rules, Danube Delta particularities.

You will be checked-in on a local 3* guesthouse. In the evening, the host will welcome you with a traditional dinner (if you have food restrictions, please let us know when you make the booking).

Day 2 – We start the morning trip, half an hour before sunrise. We search for birds on lakes and canals around Mila23 Village. We come back for breakfast at about 8:00 a.m. After breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we will go on a boat tour on the lakes (9:30 a.m.). We will explore the surrounding lakes of Mila23 village on 2 tours, each about 4 hours long, one in the morning and one in the afternoon (last 4 hours of light). Depending on the Danube’s water level and on updated information on where large groups of birds are feeding, we will pick the best route each day.

At 13:30, we will return at the guesthouse, to have the lunch, relax for a few moments, then 4 hours before sunset, we will leave on a different route. When we get back (after sunset), you’ll have a traditional dinner, based on fresh fish.

Day 3 – On this day, we will also have the morning tour before sunrise and come back at 8:00 a.m. After breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we will depart again on water (9:30 a.m.). We will visit Letea Forest and Letea Village. On the route to Letea we will cross many good places for birding, also the forest and the sand island are rich in birds, different from the previous day. We will travel to Letea Village by boat. From there, we will travel to Letea Forest by car. We can have the lunch in a very beautiful local household where our hosts will cook for us a great meal. Around 16:00 we will head back to Mila23, also on a nice route, to search for more birds. We will be back at the guesthouse before sunset.

Day 4 – This is the last morning trip before sunrise, then we go back at 8:00 a.m. After breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we will go on a trip to Caraorman Village (9:30). We drive downstream on the Old Danube to Crisan, on Sulina chanel, to Caraorman Village, on the route we will see many places with birds, especially waders and water birds. We visit the most important sights, we make a stop at Birds’ Sanctuary and we take a walk on the sand, to discover more birds.

Day 5 – Breakfast at 8:30 then at 9:30 we will head back to Tulcea, following the same route we took on day 1. We will reach Tulcea around 12:00 p.m., where we will end our trip.

*This is a PROPOSAL schedule. The order of the day trips will be decided based on the availability of our partners (e.g. car to Letea forest). You’ll have all the trips described above but not necessarily in this order.
