Why visit the Danube Delta?
From the town of Tulcea, there are many boat tours and trips that will take you further in to the Danube Delta. Before setting off though, we would recommend that you spend a bit of time visiting the Danube Delta Eco-tourism centre. The centre contains a permanent exhibition explaining and showing the natural habits and the importance of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve, as well as a public aquarium and various changing exhibitions.
An important thing to pack before you have set off in to the Delta on your trip, and what we strongly advise, is that you bring a wide brimmed hat and lots of sun cream, even on a cloudy day. Hours out on a boat can cause sunburn with the water reflecting the sunlight.
Once underway, sit back, relax and enjoy the journey through a maze of canals bordered by thatch, willows and oaks entangled in lianas. This habitat offers the perfect breeding ground for countless species of birds, some of them from as far away as China and Africa. Millions of Egyptian white pelicans arrive here every spring to raise their young, while equal numbers of Arctic geese come here to escape the harsh winters of Northern Europe. There is always something to see whatever time of year that you visit.
