In the morning, after breakfast (8:30 a.m.), we set off by slowboat 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.

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.
