Excursion in the Danube Delta
We'll begin with a 500m walk (approx.) and then board a tourist pleasure boat to begin our visit of the Danube Delta. We'll board these small local boats (with a capacity of 50 passengers) to discover the flora and fauna of this biosphere in the company of our guides.
The site today is one of 300 international biosphere reserves designated by UNESCO to try to measure the impact of Man on the environment. The human presence on the North and South banks of the Delta has been in evidence since Neolithic times, when the Delta was still only a gulf in the Black Sea. The Danube Delta is home to more than 1200 different varieties of plants, 300 species of birds and 45 different freshwater fish varieties in its many lakes and marshes. During our visit, we may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some white pelicans, dwarf cormorants or glossy ibis or other species.
We'll return to our ship on foot.
- Caps and sunglasses are recommended.
