Danube Delta, Tulcea

Take a boat ride and explore the maze of canals and lakes with floating reed islands on Danube Delta. The region, which also boasts forests, meadows, and sand dunes, is home to wildcats, wolves, foxes, boars, and deer. You'll also find nearly 300 species of birds here, including Egyptian white pelicans, Arctic geese, pygmy cormorants, and white-tailed eagles. The area includes a few scattered villages on the shores, including Chilia Veche--an ancient Greek settlement and the site of a battle between the forces of Vlad the Impaler and of Mahomed II, the conqueror of Constantinople. Start your excursion at the village of Tulcea, at the end of the three channels.

    A 4 hour drive from Bucharest, Tulcea, the starting point for those who love adventure, in the Danube Delta. Exotic region with 1100 species of trees and plants, 300 bird species and 100 species of fish. Spectacular place to take refuge in nature.

  • I had been looking forward to this for a few years and was not disappointed! We used Safca Tours and they did a wonderful job! We saw so many different birds and plants! We took the tour all the way to Sulina and had a traditional lunch along the way (tour arranged). It was about €60 for the tour, but worth it for the whole day!
  • Heaven on earth. A must do experience especially with a good sniper guide to access the hidden channels.
  • It's look very nice! So sad the that world leaders decided to cut it from Bulgarian territory .. from the point of view of access it. .. take gut care this is one unique place , small paradise in are small planet!
  • A must-see destination. A nice and knowledgeable local guide is also highly recommended.
  • Thanks for all the best regards! Tulcea city and Sulina city, tour in Danube River and Delta Danube, Romania - E.U.
