Full descriprion:

1st day

We’ll pick you up from the airport or accommodations in Bucharest and travel to the heart of Dobrogea historical region, a place of new and old; here we visit a monastery set in very beautiful landscape and watch the sunset from the top of a citadel. 

Our accomodation is in the city of Tulcea, the gateway to the Delta.

2nd day

The day starts with an Oriental feel to it, Turkish coffee and Tatar food, a tribute to these people of the land. After this, our boat lives for Sulina. Here, for starters, we sightsee the city of Sulina and visit the old Lighthouse and the point where the Old Danube is kissing the sea. The evening ends with a traditional outdoor pot cooked meal and eating around the campfire (a traditional fish borsch), and some music.

We spend the night in Sulina.

3rd day

This day is all about travelling in search of finding tranquillity. We start early to see the life of a fisherman  and his daily struggle to find the fish. After that we stop to eat near Letea Forest, the oldest natural reservation in Romania, the place where wild horses still roam free. Lunch will be in place as we arrive at Letea; this time it will be a different dish, after all in the Delta there are so many ethnic groups, all with their unique customs and food.

On our way back, the boat driver will take us through a series of canals and lakes in search of rare birds. The pelicans, wild ducks and the spoonbill are just a little part of what we can meet. Our personal favourite is the little European roller, that nests in the banks of the river.

This night of accommodation is also in Sulina.

 4th day

In the morning, we’ll go to Tulcea by speedboat. We will stop at Histria, one of the oldest citadels in Romania, a great Greek heritage, and visit the museum to develop an appetite. Lunch will be accompanied by a wine tasting at a local vineyard, where our hosts expect us with a little surprise.
