Meeting and boarding

For this trip, we start from Port Tulcea Aval, at 10:00 a.m. For finalizing the payments (if any) and the communication regarding the boat with which you will go to Mila23, we are waiting for you at 9:45 a.m.

The route: We start from Tulcea, descend on Tulcea Canal to the intersection with the Canal 36 (within about 10 minutes from the departure we are already in the Danube Delta), descend on Canal 36 and then turn right onto Sireasa Canal, areas which are very rich in fauna living in the Danube Delta (birds and water animals). We continue the trip on Sontea Canal, among flooded areas, full of birds and aquatic vegetation. Here we will have the opportunity to see white and yellow water lilies, swans, coots, ducks, geese, common spoonbills, black-tailed godwits, ibis and pelicans.

We then cross the Fortuna lake, one of the largest lakes of the Danube Delta, an especially beautiful and fauna-rich lake. In the case of days with strong wind and big waves, we will avoid this lake. The guide is the one to decide if the group crosses the lake or not.

We then cross the Olguta canal and reach Mila23, right in the middle of the Danube Delta. This route will take about 3 hours. At Mila23 we can visit the village, we can have a traditional lunch based on fish in an authentic, Lipovan household (optional). After lunch we set off to return, mostly on the same route, but we assure you that in the opposite direction everything looks completely different.

We will arrive to the boarding point in Tulcea at around 5:00 P.M.

*Depending on the season, the water level and the weather conditions, the guide will decide which is the best route to follow.
