We would like to invite you to an 8 day trip to explore and discover one of the most beautiful places of nature in Europe, the Danube delta. The delta is one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the world with hundreds of species of animals and vegetation.
The delta is a real paradise with vast amounts of birds. The largest part is only accessible by boat and that is precisely what we will do. You will come across a mixture of water streams, reed, birds, fisherman's villages, lilies, monasteries, forests and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
It is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of wetlands.
5000 square kilometers of rivers, canals, marshes, ponds, lakes, lagoons and reed islands
300 species of birds
3500 species of animals, including wolves, foxes, boar, otter, minx and deer

There are 3 main branches:
All have stops at interesting villages (several with ruins of ancient civilizations), and pass different ecosystems teaming with wildlife.
Tulcea: The 19th century Greek Church of Saint Nicholas on the waterfront. The 60-foot-tall lighthouse, located in the middle of town, was built in 1802 and restored in 1870 by the Danube Commission.
Murighiol, a traditional fishing village, is home to the ruined Roman city of Halmyris, one of the most important ancient sites in Romania. The city was continuously inhabited from the 6th century BC to the 7th century AD. Although a basilica and a crypt containing the tomb of Epictet and Astion, the earliest Romanian Christian martyrs, have been discovered here, much of the ruins remain unexcavated. A visit offers the chance to see an ancient city still in the process of being uncovered.
