Along the most southern Danube arm through the nature reserve Bestepe Hills. A wonderful view deep down into the Delta will make you forget some ascents. At the small fishing village Murighiol we enter into a maze of channels, floating islands, dense forests and a pure wilderness experience by boat. Overnight on hotelboat.
A bumpy gravel path – on the right the open range of the Black Sea, on the left side the lush green reeds and marsh land. In the loneliness of the Danube Delta Cormorants and Great White Egrets are our permanent companions. Kilometer “0” at Sulina: the Danube has reached its final destination at the lighthouse and starts to merge with the salt of the sea. Overnight on hotelboat.
Along the bird’s paradise Musura-Bay the path leads you to the picturesque village Letea. It seems as if time stands still here. The houses are made of reed and loam, lovely painted in blue and all surrounded by contemplative silence. Close to the village, located on a sandbank, a special wonder of nature can be observed – a tropical forest with climbing plants and lianes. We will reach the fishing village Crisan by boat. Overnight on hotelboat.
During the cruise through a labyrinth of narrow waterways we pass by small fishing villages and again experience the incredible diversity of the Fauna and Flora of the UNESCO World Heritage Danube Delta. In the afternoon we return from a surreal dream world to the vibrant city life of Tulcea. Overnight on hotelboat
