Active Vacations

Bird-watching

Danube Delta Bird Watching Hundreds of species of birds call the Danube
Delta home — at least from late Spring until mid-Fall. Bird-watchers do not need any equipment (although binoculars help), no licence is required, and there are plenty of locations throughout
the Danube Delta to watch fowl in their natural habitat. Most bird-watchers are lucky enough
to spot Black Pelican colonies. Specialized tour operators such as Ibis Tours will assure the most successful bird-watching trip to the Danube Delta.

Within this range are innumerable places of natural beauty: mountain peaks, gorges, lakes, forests, caves, mud volcanoes and fossil deposits. It is very easy to find a great hiking trail. Romania has more than 400 parks and nature reservations protecting hundreds of species of flora and fauna. The variety of terrain, from mountainous to gentle, offers something for every hiker regardless of skill or level.
