We invite you to join us in a very special trip to the Danube Delta – a wildlife enthusiasts’ paradise. This trip offers you the unique opportunity to make a 4 hours boat cruise in the second largest and best preserved deltas in Europe and explore the maze of canals, marshes, willows, oaks entangled in lianas and reed islands, as well as watch some bird colonies (cormorants, white tailed eagles, pelicans and many others) which find the ideal breeding ground in this place. Besides birds, the Danube Delta is also a rich community of fish and animals, as well as a great diversity of plant species forming real floating or fixed islands on the water surface.
