2-Day Danube Delta & Birdwatching Tour from Bucharest

Alina With: Alina 5
A beautiful and untouched natural garden, the UNESCO Danube Delta is the second largest wildlife biosphere in Europe, home to over 320 species of birds and a huge variety of fish and plants. Villagers here have a unique lifestyle adapted to the environment - with a delicious fish-based cuisine! On this trip we'll see as much as possible of the beautiful Romanian Delta!

Moments to expect in the Danube Delta tour from Bucharest:

  • The Danube Delta - a natural wonder!

    The Danube Delta - a natural wonder!

    We will start our Danube Delta tour by visiting the Delta Museum in Tulcea. This is the best place to learn about the Delta's history and formation, birds and fish species living here, the Delta's massive importance as a biosphere and how locals adapted their life here. The museum features an amazing aquarium where you can see the most important fish living in the Danube!

  • Life in the Delta

    Life in the Delta

    Villages in the Delta are unique in their layout, architecture, cuisine and local customs. We arrive in Murighiol, a village representative for the Delta and settle in our accommodation, a family-owned guesthouse.

  • Exploring the Delta by boat

    We are then guided by a local on his slow-traveling boat to navigate the Delta's canals and admire its natural beauty. We will see numerous wild birds, luxurious vegetation, sparkling lakes and understand why this patch of nature needs to be protected. The Danube Delta is one of our planet’s greatest wetland areas and is worthy of being a UNESCO-protected site. After this 3-hour boat ride you will see why!

  • City of Constanta and the Black Sea

    Next morning after breakfast we will leave for the city of Constanta. Known as Tomis 2,000 years ago, this is one of the oldest documented cities in Romania and was a major trading port on the Black Sea. It has a rich mix of Greek, Roman, Ottoman, Tatar and Armenian culture and we will visit the Old Town area, main squares and, of course, the Black Sea promenade and the Casino Palace, the city's famous landmark. If weather allows we can also spend some time on the beach!

    Instead of visiting Constanta, you can choose to spend the 2nd day in the Danube Delta! You can relax and explore the area on your own or we can go on another boat ride [not included] on a different canal route to do more birdwatching! Return to Bucharest late evening.
    Extra cost for the boat ride: 50 Euro/person

  • [Extend the tour] 2 nights in the Delta + visit Constanta

    [Extend the tour] 2 nights in the Delta + visit Constanta

    Why not turn this into a 3-day tour? After the boat ride on the 2nd day, spend the 2nd night in the Delta at the same guesthouse. Enjoy some free time to explore the area, see how villagers live, relax and take it slow! On the 3rd day we visit Constanta, see the Black Sea and then return to Bucharest in the evening.
