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

The evening before the trip, the guide will inform you of the departure time for this trip. Depending on the month of your holiday, the sunrise time differs. The trip lasts about 2 hours. Considering that in the morning the weather is colder than during the day, please take a jacket with you.

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 the 2-2.5 hours until reach Letea village, explore an wild, spectacular area. From Letea Village take a safari car 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 interest, walk through the fine sand then return to the village and you will have lunch at a local, authentic household, where the hosts cook simple and traditional food. We want you to see an alternative to Lipovan food, the “hohol” food (Ukrainian), which, although similar, has its particularities. After lunch return to the boat and go back, over the lakes, towards Mila23. 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 donuts of Letea, as a dessert.

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

Day 3: 8:30 – Breakfast 9:30 – Departure for the trip to Sfantu Gheorghe | 14:30 – Lunch | 20:30 – Dinner

After breakfast, the small adventure in the Danube Delta will be continued with a visit to Sfantu Gheorghe, a place that due to the wildness and frequent floods did not represent an interest for the frequent migrant populations and foreign dominions in whose hands it fell over time, being for a long time only a transit place for ships going down or upstream the Danube, on their way to the existing trade routes.
Visiting the beach is followed by a walk to the fishermen village and a lunch, whose star will be the famous “Storceag”, the sturgeon soup.
“The real Storceag is eaten only in one place in Romania – at Sf. Gheorghe – Danube Delta. It’s a mix of Ukrainian and Romanian cuisine, a slightly motley recipe – both continental and fishery – but light. Strong drinks are not associated with this light soup, but a small and good wine, from a good family, a fresh Sauvignon from the hills of Tulcea, white on the skin and more than fragile, young ”– as Radu Anton Roman said.
The tour continues to Holbina, a refined location, ideally located between Dunavatu de Jos and Lake Razim, which offers its visitors an area of more than 1200ha of protected nature, cared for with great passion.
Accommodation and dinner to Holbina Resort 3 Bibani.

Day 4: Half an hour before sunrise – Sunrise trip | 8:30 – Breakfast | 9:30 – Departure to the lakes trip | 13:30 – Lunch | 20:30 – Dinner

We kept for this magical place, Lake Razim (Razelm), the trip to sunrise, it is a spectacle difficult to describe in words so we really want to show it to you right from the lake (* except for windy days). After breakfast we embark again for a trip to the lakes around Holbina, wild areas unexplored due to the great distance from any village. After lunch you can choose between relaxing at the resort pool or exploring the eclouser by kayak (self-guide).

Day 5: 8:30 – Breakfast 9:30 – Transfer to Tulcea

The transfer to Tulcea is done by a fast boat (the distance is more than 100km on water). You will disembark in Tulcea around 12:00.
