Day 1 – Pick you up from Bucharest Airport and transfer you to a 3*** hotel in Tulcea (accommodation in double rooms).

If you have enough time we recommend you a visit to the Danube Delta Museum (very close to the hotel).
Day 2 – Day 6- Starting the tour from Tulcea in the morning and paddle to Mila23, the middle of the Danube Delta. We paddle on small channels, wild lakes, in fact we try to reach 'civilization' only in the last day. Every day, after breakfast we depart on a new route, lunch will be prepared by our 2 guides on the spot and you can help them. We'll have traditional fish soup (made right there), every day another recipe OR grill (fish, pork or chicken) + a big traditional salad. Water for everyone but no other drinks.
The paddling time per day is about 5-6 hours, in 2 stages, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. We tray to show you all the beauties of Delta's nature: birds, flower, animals, landscapes. We take enough time to watch everything, our guides are very good naturalists and they can tell you a lot about what you see.
Day 7 – After breakfast we transfer you to Tulcea where the bus for airport is waiting for us.
The average of the distance per day is about 20 km. It is not too much, every one can do it.
The boats we use for this tour are single kayaks, double kayaks and / or canoes. You can find details here: Kayak renting in Danube Delta. Please let us know what kind of boat do you want.
The luggage boat. Will not follow us, will not disturb us. The boat will start before us in the morning, after lunch, with the luggage, food and everything else. You'll have in the kayak only what you need till lunch time or evening, water, photo camera and what you consider. We'll met the boat again on the lunch spot, with a ready place for preparing the food and you can see or even help the guides to cook. Then the boat will leave again and we'll meet with it again in the evening, at the sleeping spot.
The kayak tour is not a race, we paddle slowly, is more a Discover Danube Delta trip. We stop from time to time for relaxation, we visit shallow water lakes, invaded of vegetation which is a shelter for many species of birds and animals. When we find places with many birds like pelicans, herons, white tailed eagles, ibises, coots, ducks, geese, swans and other, we can make a stop to watch them and take some photos.
