Into the Black Sea

Danube Delta by Bike and Boat

Tour Description: Guided

This cycling trip by "hotel boat" meanders through the stunning beauty of Europe's last natural paradise, the Danube Delta. Pedal to mile "0", where the mighty Danube River empties into the Black Sea.

The tour takes you through Romania's Delta, the second largest and best preserved of Europe's deltas. You will travel along canals with floating reed islands, lagoons, and lakes. The landscape alternates between gently rolling hills and swamp and prairie land and amazes one with its diversity and beauty.

Life in small fishing villages is tranquil, the solitude and silence of the almost impenetrable thicket many times interrupted only by the calls of Dalmatian Pelicans, Cormorants, and Egrets. Under expert guidance, you will discover the fauna and flora of this landscape, which is also rich in history, and enjoy Romania hospitality and cuisine on board your floating hotel and in the cozy guesthouse.

With our experienced local wildlife and bike guides, you will learn to recognize birds by their calls, discover rare plants and animals, and hear about the life of the Delta residents and the incredible eventful past of this region, which historically fascinated the Romans, Greeks, and Dacians.
