Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve, Tulcea

Take a boat ride and explore the maze of canals and lakes with floating reed islands on Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve. 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.

  • This is the paradise. The beat place for fishing and camping. Really amazing and relaxing. One experience you of the life time you should not miss.
  • It's hold everything that's beautiful about this country. Gura Portitei resort is the perfect place to stay and visit the wetlands and the seaside at the same time. Low prices, high comfort.
  • A vast expanse of wetlands, with a maze of small channels and vast lakes. An absolute must for nature lovers and fisherman. If you want to go there, try Unravelled paths. They do holidays there.
  • For photography, relaxation and great food you will be hard pressed to find a better place. The best advice is to haggle with boat owners! There is always a better price.
  • foarte frumos, un pic murdar. it depends on wich boat and what company you choose
