* The minimum age to join in this program is 5 years old (children born since 2018). Do not forget that the trips are long, the trip to Letea lasts the full day, we travel by boat, with a safari car and on foot. It can be too much for a small child, especially in the summer when it is very hot.
The departure for this trip is from Port Tulcea Aval. In order to complete the payments (if any) and to communicate regarding the boat you will go to Mila23, we will be waiting for you at our boarding point, at 15:30.
The transfer to Mila23 is done 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.
Depending on the sunset time, the guide will let you know the departure time on this excursion. 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.
You’ll have 2 trips, one in the morning and one in the evening. Depending on the Danube water level as well as the fresh information we have about where large groups of birds feed on the lakes near by Mila23 village, we will choose the best route every day.
The morning tour starts at 9:30, for the evening tour, the guide will let you know the schedule, depending the season and the sunset hour.
If you would like to have the lunch, inform the guesthouse staff at breakfast in the morning. Also, for the lunch at Letea (for the next day), please inform the guide in this evening.
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. Considering that in the morning the weather is colder than during the day, please take a jacket with you.
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. The guide will show you the special plants, the special places and (hopefully) the wild horses.
See the points of interest, walk through the fine sand then return to the village and you can 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 in the afternoon.
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. 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.
The trip to Sulina
After breakfast, you will depart by boat to Sulina, on the Old Danube to Crișan and the Sulina branch. Once arrived in Sulina, you will take a walk along the streets that still preserve the grandeur of an international port where you can enjoy the 3 old churches, from different confessions, that all bear the same name; the Jean Bart lighthouse-museum and the Cathedral of St. Nicholas and Alexander.
At noon you can have lunch (optional) in a local restaurant (of your choice). Free time available, to visit the multi-ethnic cemetery or relax on the beach.
At 18:00 the meeting to the boat and return to Mila23. In the evening you have another wonderful traditional fish dinner prepared.
It is made, for the most part, on the same route as on arrival, with a higher speed than on trips. It is the last part of our program and we reserve, especially for this moment, some beautiful places that we want to show you on the way. We disembark at the same pontoon from which we left and we say goodbye.
If you are leaving Tulcea with public transport, we recommend you consider a booking after 1 o’clock P.M.
Being a SHARED program, this means the whole group goes with the same car / boat, at the same hours (hours detailed in the program). Please be on board at scheduled time for both.
What we see – All the time we will try to learn something about the places we travel through, about the birds and the flora of the Danube Delta. Each season has its beauty, each area of the Delta has something particular that we will help you understand in order for you to see what makes the Danube Delta so special.
