Birdwatching Tour in the Danube Delta

Enthusiastic ornithologists have the opportunity to admire throughout the year a number of 350 bird species, many of which are very rare in Europe. During the spring migration (April 15-June 15), the most attractive and interesting birdwatching period (as well as August-September), in a 8-10 days tour we can observe approximately 140-160 of bird species.


The Danube Delta is one of the last remaining natural paradises in Europe, characterized by a network of channels, lakes, and lushly vegetated forests. It is home to a diverse mix of cultures and people, and an abundance of wildlife, with the pelican being the most iconic bird species. This area, covering around 5800, is the second largest delta in Europe, formed around 12,000 years ago at the point where the Danube River flows into the Black Sea. The Danube Delta was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 1990, and is managed by a state institution with the aim of preserving and protecting its natural heritage, as well as reconstructing areas damaged by human activities. The delta is home to a wide variety of fauna, including over 330 species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and 3,018 species of invertebrates. The most common mammals include the otter, wildcat, racoon dog and wild boar, while fish species include carp, catfish, pike and sturgeons. The human population of the delta is around 15,000, living in 25 villages, with the largest town being Sulina.
