Dobrogea is one of the bird-rich areas of Romania. It is located on an important migration route and benefits from many water areas: the Danube Delta, marshy areas, lakes on the Black Sea coast.
Dobrogea is also known as a wintering area for birds from Northern Europe and Siberia, the winters being milder here and easier to bear.
Our tour takes place around the city of Constanța, where there are some interesting HOT-SPOTS.
After the more than 100 km that we will drive, you will have a clearer picture of what Dobrogea represents from the ornithological point of view.
We believe that this tour is a « MUST TO BE SEEN! » for any nature lover!Plus de photos
