Customize your holiday in the Danube Delta by choosing a private program in which you have the freedom to decide your daily destination. Along with a guide dedicated only to your party, you can discover the authentic Letea, the interesting Sulina, the remote Sfantu Gheorghe (Saint George), the fascinating lakes or the picturesque Caraorman.

The first and last day are dedicated to transfers, the rest of the days being dedicated to trips in the Danube Delta. The boat we use is an open boat, with a great view, stable and safe, manufactured according to our concept.

A program proposal looks like this (example of a 4 days / 3 nights program):

Day 1

Meeting at the embarking point | Departure from Tulcea (by boat) |Accommodation to the guesthouse | Dinner | Sunset trip

Meeting and boarding

The departure for this holiday is from Port Tulcea Aval. After you pass the barriers from the entrance to the port, 200 meters straight ahead, there is the pontoon where is written “DEBARCADER PASAGERI” (“PASSENGERS’ WHARF). You can find us on the pontoon in the Souvenir Shop.

The accommodation (check-in) at the guesthouse can be made only after 14:00 and the last hour to leave from Tulcea can vary, depending on the season (at least 2 hours before sunset).

Car parking

  • Personal cars can be parked in Tulcea, right in the yard of Port Aval, in a private, guarded parking.
  • The cost of parking is Euro 5/day/car (parking price is NOT included in the trip price and it is informative).

Transfer and accommodation at the guesthouse

You will go to Mila 23 on one of the most beautiful routes in the Danube Delta. The transfer lasts about 2 hours. Our guide will lead you to the pontoon of the guesthouse you will be staying in.

In the evening, the host will await you with a delicious dinner.

Sunset trip

It lasts 1-2h, depending on the sunset time, each season. The boarding for the trips is made from the pontoon of the guesthouse where you are staying (the same one you disembarked before). Please come at the pontoon 10 minutes before the departure hour, to have enough time for boarding.

Trip to Letea Forest

The trip to Letea Forest is a day of contrasts, starting on the water, pass through the desert area of the Letea Levee and reach the Letea Forest. With a route through the northern area of the Danube Delta, very close to the pelicans colony Rosca-Buhaiova, the largest colony of White Pelicans in the world, in 2-2.5 hours until reach Letea village, you will explore a wild, spectacular area. From Letea Village take a safari car and go to Letea Forest. There are about 7 km from the village to the forest, travel by car then on foot about 20-30 minutes, on the route approved by the Danube Delta Administration. See the points of great interest, walk through the fine sand then return to the village for lunch at a local, authentic household, where the hosts cook simple and traditional food. We also want you to see an alternative to Lipavan food, the “hohol” food (Ukrainian), which, although similar, has its particularities. After lunch you’ll return to the boat and go back, over the lakes, to Mila23. You’ll arrive at the guesthouse around 19:00.

Lunch at the local household in Letea

You should know this is not a restaurant and no other dishes can be ordered. Lunch is always based on fish and it is composed of first course (a traditional fish soup), second course (fish with potatoes in the oven) and the famous Letea donuts, as a dessert. The hosts have a very simple service system and can only offer complete menus.

It is a long, demanding trip, so please have the minimum required equipment with you.

8:30 – Breakfast | 9:30 – Transfer to Tulcea | 11:30 – Arrival in Tulcea, the end of the program.
