7 Day escorted tour in Bucharest and Danube Delta
New: Guaranteed departure September 25 2018
The mighty 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. The Danube Delta is the wildlife enthusiast’s paradise.
The maze of canals bordered by thatch, willows and oaks entangled in lianas, 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.
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.
Romania has one of the oldest wine traditions in all of Europe, dating back to ancient times before Greek civilization. Indigenous grapes have always prospered, and viticulture followed. Two wine tasting sessions were included in order to get you acquainted with the wonderful Romanian wines.
