Bird Watching in Romania, Danube Delta Experience is a five-day bird watching tour around the beautiful Danube River as it ends its journey through Europe in Romania. Your stay includes four nights’ accommodation in a family-owned eco-lodge with home-cooked traditional meals using fresh fish and other local ingredients.

The holiday also includes three boat trips that will give you a real taste for bird watching in Romania. The trips last around six hours each, offering you the opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife in a gentle and relaxed way.

This small-group birding tour is led by an English-speaking guide who knows the Danube Delta very well and can introduce you to some of its hidden charms.

You will visit three distinct ecosystems during your stay – wetlands of water channels and lakes, forest areas with sand dunes, and areas of reclaimed agricultural land that have been a focus of conservation efforts.

The Danube is Europe’s second-longest river, rising in Germany and emptying into the Black Sea at the Romanian coast. Bird watching in the peaceful green landscapes of this part of Romania is a tonic for the mind, enabling you to wind down from your busy life and just enjoy being in nature.

  • Top Reasons to Visit
  • The Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve was included in the List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1990 (UNESCO World Heritage) when it was recognised as a wetland of international importance, especially as a wildfowl habitat.
  • At 2,200 square miles, the Danube Delta is regarded as one of Europe’s largest wetlands, laced with branches off the main river, marshland, canals and reeded islands. It has the most extensive area of compact reed beds in the world.
  • The Danube Delta is the best preserved of Europe’s delta ecosystems. It is the perfect breeding ground for thousands of birds that migrate there from around the world. More than that, a birding watching trip in Romania can be a rewarding one year-round.
  • The Biosphere Reserve is the world’s third-largest area for biodiversity, following only Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands in the number of species (5,500 types of flora and fauna) it supports.
  • Important species found while bird watching in this part of Romania include Pygmy Cormorant, White Pelican, Dalmatian Pelican, White-tailed Eagle, Ferruginous Duck, Red-breasted Goose, Glossy Ibis, Marsh Harrier, Purple Heron, Spoonbill, Kingfisher, Squacco Heron, White Stork, Caspian Tern, Red-footed Falcon and Roller.
  • Our Bird Watching in Romania tour also has a conservation focus, highlighting the Carasuhat area. Since 1993 this has been part of an ecological reconstruction project, returning former agricultural land in the Danube Delta to a natural habitat for breeding birds.

Do you met the minimum criteria of Responsible travel standard?
A very important point is to help local people to understand the real value of their living place, the real value of the Danube Delta, as not only a living place, but a very important place for the world. We hired local people and we collaborate with the local school, preparing the students(aprentice ships) for a future in a responsible tourism. We serve only home made dishes, in the most traditional way. We use solar panel for whater heating. We use binoculars in our trips, as the birds can be seen, but not to be distrurb. We use LED bulbs in the building; We separate the plastic botles from the rest of the garbage. Before leaving in a tour, we have a few minutes of discussion with the tourists(something like a little training) about the environment: do not harm flowers, we will now stay close by birds that’s why we are using binoculars, do not leave the garbage in the area, keep silence, use your life-vest etc. Local projects that we visit include the near by ecological reconstruction zone Carasuhat. The project is sustained by WWF.
