This trip takes you to the second largest delta in Europe (after the Volga delta). This delta is a biosphere reserve, and part of it is a completely protected area, part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. You probably know that the river Danube – the second one in Europe, after Volga – rises in Germany, flows through 10 countries into the Black See forming the Danube Delta, an area of about 5,000 sqkm
This is what you will see in your trip:
– Highly diverse flora and fauna, unique in Europe, with numerous rare species – Situated on major migratory routes, and providing adequate conditions for nesting and hatching, the Danube Delta is a magnet for birds from six major eco-regions of the world, including the Mongolian, Arctic and Siberian. With a little bit of luck, you may see wild horses.
– The least inhabited region in Europe – there are probably around 15,000 inhabitants in the Romanian part of the Delta, in less than 300 small villages, most of them fishermen and their families.
You will spend 4 full days in the heart of the Delta
