Tours in Romania - 13 days cultural tour
Tour Duration : 13 days & 12 nights
Tour Length : 1360 km

Europe’s richest and most beautiful wetland ecosystem is found on Romania’s Black Sea coast. After flowing 2,860 km across Europe, the river Danube spreads out into a spectacular delta. The variety of its unspoiled landscapes, the richness of its fauna – birds in particular – and its sand dunes have long attracted visitors. This unique natural habitat formed out of channels and lakes, floating islets (“plauri”), reed marshes, lianas, and forests of willow and poplar, shelters over 300 species of birds, some sufficiently rare to enjoy legal protection. The waters are home to over 100 different species of fish.
