We recommend a route to Mila23 Village, through the Danube Delta, on lakes and channels, surrounded by nature. The route is about 50km so you’ll need at least 5 hours to reach the village but also, you can drive for 2 days if you stop in beautiful places to admire the fauna and flora of the Danube Delta.
If you calculate to reach the village on the first day, you have the opportunity to discover also the local food in a local guesthouse. If you want to sleep into the wild, take with you food and drinks for 2 days.
