The route starts from one of the most beautiful areas of the Danube Delta, Garla Sontea, we descend on channel 36, Garla Sireasa, Garla Sontea, until we reach the village Mila 23, where we take a short break, for coffee and going to the toilet, then we hit the road towards Letea through the lakes: Radacinos, Trei Iezere , Bogdaproste (when the water level allows this), we descend on the Old Danube, the Madgearu Canal and reach the village Letea. A safari car is waiting for us at the mooring point, for a visit to Letea Forest, the northernmost subtropical forest in Europe. There is a distance of about 7 km between the village and the forest, a road that we travel by car and then walking about 20-30 minutes, on the route approved by ARBDD (Administration of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve). We are looking for wild horses, oaks grown on salty sand and other attractions of the place (depending on the season), we walk through the fine sand. We return to the village where we can eat lunch (optional) at an authentic local household, where the hosts cook simply and traditionally. After lunch we return to the boat for going back, through lakes and canals, towards Tulcea, on another route. We will arrive to the boarding point around the 7:00 p.m.

Each season has its beauty, each area of the Delta has its own specificity, and we will help you discover it.
