We go on a trip to Letea Forest and Letea Village. The trip to Letea is a day full of contrasts, starting on the water, we 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 we reach to Letea village we will explore a wild, spectacular area. From Letea Village we take a safari car and go to Letea Forest. There are about 7 km from the village to the forest, we travel by car then on foot about 20-30 minutes, on the route approved by ARBDD. We see the points of great interest, we walk through the fine sand then we return to the village and we can have lunch at a local, authentic household, where the hosts cook simple and traditional food. We also want you to see an alternative to Lipovan food, the “hahola” food (Ukrainian), which, although similar, has its particularities. After lunch we return to the boat and start to go back, over the lakes, towards Mila23. We arrive at the guesthouse around 19:00.
You should know that this is not a restaurant and no other dishes can be ordered. Lunch is always based on fish caught in the morning of that day and it is composed of first plate (a traditional fish soup), second plate (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. Only persons with a booking have access to the household. Payment for lunch is made directly to the hosts, in cash (LEI/RON or EURO).
It is a long, demanding trip, so please have the minimum required equipment with you.
Day 4 – 8:30 – Breakfast | 9:30 – Embarkation for the transfer to Tulcea | 11:30 – Disembarkation in Tulcea, the end of the program.

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.
