Your day by day program

1
Departure from Bucharest to Tulcea and by boat to Crisan

The tour starts in Tulcea (accessible by direct minibus or train with a change taking around 5 hours, or private transfer from Bucharest), with a 1:00 or 1:30 PM regular boat service to Crisan. Our host will welcome you at the pontoon. End of the day free to soak up the atmosphere of the delta. Possibility of a short canoe trip, recommended just before sunset. If you like fish, your dinner will be a treat.

Meals included: Dinner.

2
Boat ride to explore the south side of Sulina

Today, you get back in the host’s boat to explore the Southern part of the Sulina Branch. You will discover the long canals as well as huge lakes that are home to large colonies of birds. You will be surprised by a contrasting landscape made by both large stretches of water and small forested canals you can hardly follow because of the aquatic vegetation. You continue this way until late afternoon when you reach again the village of Crisan.

Boat ride to Letea

OPTIONAL TOUR Another boat ride will take you discover another facet of the delta. You will cross many canals, lakes and ponds, places very rich in bird species. Your host will take you to the small hamlet of Letea. There you can visit this "forgotten by God" village with its traditional houses, dust streets and old-fashioned charm. This curious village is bordered by a no less surprising forest reserve where, next to centuries-old oaks, grow all sorts of exotic plants that have sprouted here thanks to the seeds brought by migratory birds. The guide will inform you about this magical land. Picnic at the water's edge. In the afternoon you return by boat to Crisan.

Boat ride to Sulina

Sulina is an old port town where the Danube, after a course of almost 3000 km, flows into the Black Sea. A visit of this cosmopolitan town with its end of the world atmosphere is a treat: visit of the old lighthouse (km 0 from where the river is measured), the various churches and the international cemetery where you will find tombs standing proof of a mixed population. You can swim in the Black Sea. It is a rather wild beach, sheltered from the crowds.
