Danube Delta Tours – Photography
The Danube Delta or Delta Dunării, as we call it Romanian, is known as one of the best photographic landscapes in the world. Fortunately, there are very few things comparable to the sounds and images of any aquatic scenery. So, don’t miss out on exercising your skills and try a wildlife photo tour in the Danube Delta. You can even rent the equipment or try aerial photography with a Moto Delta Plane. In any case, you will be traveling on a special boat with four double bench seats and camouflage. This way you will have enough space and protection for your cameras.
If photography tours are your thing either as a professional photographer or as an amateur one, then why not explore more of Romania while also covering the Danube Delta? Atlas Obscura presents an 11-day photo trip at the end of June and the beginning of July 2019. It includes a trip to the Enisala Medieval Fortress, originally build by Genovese traders.
We happily recommend a Wild Images Danube Delta Tour in June 2019. They have a team of well-trained guides who also happen to be great photographers. However, June and July are the mosquito season months, so you must bring some form of repellent with you. For the best time to visit Danube Delta, you should check our timeline guide.

Birdwatching tours are the most looked for activity in the Danube Delta. This famous Biosphere Reservation is home to the Dalmatian pelican, the Glossy Ibis, many cormorants and species of ducks.

Once you arrived in Tulcea, all you need to do to start your Danube Delta Holidays is to find your boat and guide into the aquatic world.
Travel Kit for Summer and Winter
During summer there are plenty of bike and boat Danube Delta Tours. But, one thing is for sure, you have to adapt to an aquatic environment. At the end of spring, the water changes course and the level increases. In any case, it is always going to be windy, especially on small motor boats. You can catch a ten in no time while floating on water and you will need a cap or hat for protection. Although you are surrounded by water, you need to stay hydrated on the boat. So, a metal water bottle should be perfect to bring with you. Mosquito repellents and long-sleeved warm clothes are a must in the evening.
Winter, on the other hand, is a time when silence drops over the hills of Dobruja and the delta’s shores start to freeze. Nevertheless, the wilderness is still amazingly photographable. Dryland daily trips are a custom during Danube Delta winter tours. However, rubber boots and camouflage clothes are to preferable so that you can get closer to nature without disturbing it.
Of all the Danube Delta Tours, we hope you have already found the one that suits you most. A Danube cruise for a luxurious discovery of this grand European river and its delta are bookable in advance. Still, a Danube Delta cruise on a floating hotel is a classic and affordable way to spend your vacation there. Find out what kids can do in Danube Delta before you plan a family trip.
