Parking the cars

  • Personal cars can be parked in Tulcea, in the courtyard of the Tulco precinct in a private, guarded parking.

  • For parking spaces no bookings are made and the number of spaces is limited.

After boarding we will have lunch and leave with the floating hotel towards Crisan. Next to Mila 36 canal, we will embark on the boat and set off on the route – Mila 36 Canal, Sireasa, Sontea, Nebunu Lake, Baclanesti Lake, Canal 22, Gorgova. The trip will take about 5 hours. In Gorgova we return to the floating hotel with which we will continue sailing on the Sulina arm to the Madgearu canal, where we will spend the night.

The guide is the one who makes the difference between a trip and a journey. You will be accompanied by an experienced guide who will help you see and understand the Danube Delta.

We will have dinner aboard the ship after sunset.

Day 2

In the morning, after breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we set off by boat to the famous Letea village, where we will arrive after about two hours of exploring the Madgearu canal with the floating islands called “plauri” (“reed isles”) and the stretches of water covered with water lilies. After visiting the village, we will travel with a cart to Letea forest. Here we visit the sand dunes and lush vegetation that have made this place famous. At noon we will return to the floating hotel.

In the afternoon we will embark on the boat again in order to explore the area of the famous lakes – Bogdaproste, La Amiaza, Cazanel and Trei Iezere. In the evening we return to the floating hotel near Mila 23 village, on the Lopatna canal. A good dinner awaits us aboard the floating hotel.

Day 3

In the morning, after breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we go again on a boat trip. We go to see the lakes in the area of villages Mila 23, Ligheanca, Baclanesti, Furtuna, areas with many birds and dream landscapes. At noon we return to the floating hotel, near Baclanesti lake and we continue (aboard the hotel) to canal 36 where we will spend the night. This afternoon is perfect for relaxing on the hotel’s open terrace, where you can admire the spectacular scenery during the travel.

Day 4

Early in the morning, at 5:00 – 6:00 a.m. (depending on the time the sun rises) we will make a sunrise trip, in order to enjoy for the last time (in this stay) the beauties of nature. We go to La Cotete Lake and exit on the Trofilca canal – very beautiful, lively and interesting areas, especially if they are presented by a well-informed guide.

Considering that the morning is colder than the rest of the day, please pack a jacket with you.

After this short tour, we return to the floating hotel for breakfast while going to Tulcea. The debarking will be at around 10:00 a.m.


Our travel speed is low, we are specialized in slow trips. We place great emphasis on visiting nature without destroying it, leaving as few traces as possible while passing through those places.

All the time, we will try to teach you something about the places we go to, about the birds and the flora of the Delta. Each season has its beauty, each area of the Delta has a special specificity that we will help you understand, in order to see what makes the Delta so special.
