Our travel speed is average, which is ideal for our trips, where you will notice the finest details of the places you will pass. We will stop on every occasion, whether it is about a bird, a flower, a landscape or a story that the guide has to tell you.

The route: We start from Tulcea, descend on Tulcea Canal to the intersection with the Canal 36 (within about 10 minutes from the departure we are already in the Danube Delta), descend on Canal 36 and then turn right onto Sireasa Canal, areas which are very rich in fauna living in the Danube Delta (birds and water animals). We continue the trip on Sontea Canal, among flooded areas, full of birds and aquatic vegetation. Here we will have the opportunity to see white and yellow water lilies, swans, coots, ducks, geese, common spoonbills, black-tailed godwits, ibis and pelicans.

We then cross the Fortuna lake, one of the largest lakes of the Danube Delta, an especially beautiful and fauna-rich lake. In the case of days with strong wind and big waves, we will avoid this lake. The guide is the one to decide if the group crosses the lake or not.

We then cross the Olguta channel and reach Mila 23, right in the middle of the Danube Delta. The duration of this route is about 3 hours. At Mila 23 we can visit the village, we can eat a traditional fishing lunch in an authentic, Lipovan household (optional). After lunch we set off on the return road, mostly on the same route, but we assure you that in the opposite direction everything looks completely different.

We will arrive to the boarding point in Tulcea at around 5:00 PM.

*Depending on the season, the water level and the weather conditions, the guide will decide which the best route to follow is.

What you will see – We always seek to tell you something about the places we go, about the birds and the flora of the Delta, crowds of birds and places with the specific flora to the season during which we make the trip. Each season has its beauty, each area of the Delta has its own specificity, and we will help you to discover it.
