Day 1 - We meet in Tulcea (at 10), near the ferry crossing, we put the kayaks on the water, do a little training, we sign the tour safety rules papers and start on the water.
We paddle downstream, not on the Danube but on small chanels and wild lakes, to Mila 23: Garla Sireasa, Cot Candura (intersection with Sontea). We paddle slowly, we have enough time. May stop occasionally and stretch our legs, at noon we can afford a longer break of about an hour to eat lunch and something sweet for energy. Our guides will have with them the famous iron cast pot and will make a traditional fish soup. After lunch we take another trip and it's necessarily reach Mile 23 Village where we have reserved accommodation in a 3 *** pension.
This is the most demanding day because you have to paddle the entire distance, there's no way to make shortcuts.
Day 2 - After breakfast we go out on the water and do a beautiful tour: Channel Catavaia, Ligheanca Lake, Lake Vacaru, Channel Sontea, Fortuna Lake (depending on the wind, you cross or bypass it) and back to the village on Sontea Lata on a very scenic route.
At lunch we have a grilled fish / chicken, made by our guides on the water site, in a quiet place.
Day 3 - Waking up, breakfast then put kayaks on the water again and start on a very scenic route: Varsina Canal, Varsina Lake, Torba Goala Chanel, Lake Babina and return home on Eracle and Lopatna chanel.
At noon the guides will make a fish soup again, this time another recipe, on the water site, in a quiet place.
Day 4 - Waking up, breakfast and then take a half day tour: Old Danube, Cazanel Lake, Trei Iezere Lake, Radacinos Lake. It is a very nice lakes route.
Seasonal clothes - necessarily sun hat, robes to not fry in the sun, warm clothes for the evening / morning, thin waterproof clothing.
Hydration liquids, energizing juices (NOT RedBull but athlete versions)
Waterproof protection for camera, phones and devices
Waterproof bags or barrels for clothing and equipment
Because we have a support boat after us, there is no need to ultra-compact the luggage. A backpack or a bag of luggage per person in the assistance boat + a hand bag with everything you need half day, with you in kayak.
Will carry baggage but will NOT stay with us. The boat depart every step (morning and lunch time) forward and wait for us in lunch and dinner places. One guide will drive this boat, one guide will paddle with you. Both guides will prepare lunch on fire wood and you can participate to this preparation and clean the table and wash the dishes (very much appreciate your involvement in these activites :-). Days 2 and 3 we meet the assistance boat at lunch, if you have something that will need at noon, you can leave luggage in the boat, in the morning.
