Full description
You start the day with a trip from Bucharest towards the Danube Delta. The Danube Delta is a wildlife enthusiast’s (especially a bird watcher’s) paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. The Danube Delta is a vital center for biodiversity in Europe, and a natural genetic bank with great value for the global natural heritage due to the impressive range of habitats and species. The Danube River flows 1,788 miles from its springs in Germany’s Black Forest to the Black Sea. Just before reaching the sea it forms the second largest and best preserved of Europe's deltas: 2,200 square miles of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes and reed islands. Once you arrive, you will embark on a journey by boat along one of Danube’s canals. Some 300 species of birds make Danube’s Delta their home, including cormorants, white tailed eagles and glossy ibises. The bird watching season lasts from early spring to late summer. Birds are not the only inhabitants of the Delta. There is also a rich community of fish and animals, from wildcats, foxes and wolves, to even an occasional boar or deer. In the evening you will return to Bucharest.

Great natural landscape

Had a very nice and informative driver / guide with Rasem. On the long drive (clear at the distance) he knew a lot about Romania. Upon arrival at the Danube, I looked for what I would like to have as a late lunch after returning from the boat tour (fish platter was a very good choice), then I went for 3 hours with a small (can go anywhere) motor boat and alone with the boat captain first on the Danube, then in Canals and later on various lakes before it went back. Magnificent landscape where you can only hear the birds. Many animals (including pelicans, herons, storks, turtles, water snakes and cormorants) have been seen. After the return, the food was ready after 5 minutes (perfectly timed), then eaten comfortably and back to Bucharest. In addition to the tour Peles, Bran and Brasov the tour outside Bucharest that I found best. Many thanks to Rasem for the great tour.

Very enjoyable day, especially the boat trip near the delta

Very pleasant, informative guide; interesting sights of a variety of bird species at the delta; the pelicans were probably the highlight.
