Birdwatching to Dobruja and the Danube Delta, 7d/6n Private Tour


Danube Delta is the water kingdom and Dobruja is the opposite, dry land of many kinds: steppe, forest, plains, hills, dwarf mountains, sea shore. Imagine how many species of birds you can see!

As a showcase of how we work, we can tell you that we are not specialized in slow tours, to discover the full offer of the Danube Delta nature, not just see / tick but sit and watch birds and animals, trying to unravel as many of their way of life. We love to discover something new each time for every species, not only identification but also the particular aspects of their lives. All this program is lead by a specialized birdwatching guide.


Day 1: We wait for you in Tulcea, at the hotel in the afternoon (we will send you all the details about the adress by email) and have a short meeting to know each other and to inform you about the program for next day.

Day 2: If you want, we can start very early (this is not a problem for us, we recommend early starts), you choose if you take the breakfast at the hotel (usually after 7:00) or have the breakfast to go (we can find a good place for picnic after we see the first birds).

Today is FOREST BIRDS DAY and we head to Macin Mountains. We search for all kind of forest birds but, to the Mountains, we go in search also for other characteristic parts of this area (meadow, rocks etc). We will have some sessions of walk into the forests or on the mountains (easy trails).

We will have the lunch with us and we will have a picnic into the shadow of the forest.

Day 3: The same as Day 2 we will have the breakfast to go. Today is the SHORE BIRDS DAY, we head to South, to the sea shore and we stop from place to place to scan the shores for all kind of birds. Of course, we will not refuse any other species. The lunch today is also as a picnic.

Day 4: This is a special day, we will have half on dry land, half on water. The same about the breakfast (especially in mid summer). We will see a special area, with salty lakes and other nice places. At lunch time we will be back to the accommodation in Tulcea, have the lunch, take the luggage and go to the boat for the transfer to Mila23, the next part of our program. From now, we will be only on the boat for trips.

The transfer takes about 4 hours (we are not in a hurry), we do the transfer in very low speed, searching for birds. Our route cross very nice areas, with many birds. In the evening we will be in Mila23, in the middle of the Danube Delta. Here will be our accommodation for the next 3 nights. The hosts will wait for us with a traditional diiner based on fish.

Day 5: Breakfast rule is the same as before. Usually, we take a tour early in the morning then go back to the guesthouse for breakfast, then we will take a long tour of the Delta, to North Lakes. Today is the PELICANS AND WATER BIRDS DAY.

We will have the lunch in another village, at a local household.

Day 6: Today we break the breakfast rule and it will be taken at the guesthouse at 7:00, then we depart for a long tour. We will cross the Delta, till Sfantu Gheorghe Village and Sakalin Lagoon. This is a long day, a long route, a lot of birds.

This is a BIRDS DAY, all kind of birds will be in our way because we will cross marshlands, sandy canals, shallow lakes, stretches of waterlilies, small and large canals, the Danube (Sfantu Gheorghe Branch) till the sea shore. We will be back in Mila23 late in the evening.

Lunch will be in Sfantu Gheoarge Village, in a nice restaurant.

Day 7: After a relaxed breakfast (9:00 am), this time without sunrise session, we will head back to our way to Tulcea. Now, in the morning, we will have the best light for this route. Of course, if you have a flight to catch, we can start the transfer early in the morning.

* If you choose the transfer from the airport with us, we can make a route with several stops in interesting places where we also see several species of birds.
