Explore the Danube Delta, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, on a private full-day tour from Bucharest. The Danube River crosses 10 countries in Europe, emptying into the Black Sea after its passage through Romania. The vast delta is home to more than 300 bird species and 45 species of fish, and you'll see highlights such as Lake Furtuna, Mila 23 village, and lush river channels. Includes lunch, private transportation, and hotel pickup and drop-off.
Your day starts early with morning pickup in Bucharest at 7am and transfer by private vehicle to Tulcea, a journey of about 3.5 hours.
From there, board your speed boat with your guide, and ride through South Sireasa channel, Old Şontea channel, Lake Baclaneşti and Lake Furtuna, Wide Şontea channel, and Olguţa channel, before stopping for lunch in Mila 23 Village.
English engineers measured the Danube River in miles, starting with mile 0 in Sulina on the Black Sea. After traveling by water for 23 miles inland, you'll come to Mila 23 Village, a traditional fishermen settlement founded by the Lipovans, who fled from religious persecution in Russia during the early 18th century. En route, look for swans, moor hens, wild ducks, and white pelicans that flock to Lake Furtuna in the summer.
Return via the Wide Şontea channel, Babarada channel, Sulina channel, and pass by villages such as Gorgova, Maliuc, Partizani, until reaching the harbor in Tulcea after about seven hours on the delta. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Bucharest in the evening.
