This kayaking expedition is our most sought-after tour in the Danube Delta. We developed this tour to capture most of the beauty, scenery and tastes, explore wild waterways, think less about paddling and more about adventure.
Each branch of the Danube has it’s own hidden beauty. We start the adventure in the northern side of the Delta, towards Mila 23, then to Sulina Branch and further to the Caraorman village. In the last day we will reach St. Gheorghe branch.

Live the excitement because every day there will be different landscapes and challenges.
We all know how good it feels to have a warm meal after a hard day of paddling. Each night we will have a different traditional dish to enjoy.
Sleep in the middle of the nature, near fishermen huts or on the dunes of Caraorman.
DAY 1: We meet in Murighiol at 8:00 to the Landing place or as directed further. Here we will have the basic training. We will have to take the cars to our arriving point, in Mahmudia, about 10 km away.
At 12:00, at the latest, we’ll be on the water. We cross the St. George branch and paddle up to Uzlina village, then go down to the chain of lakes Uzlina – Durnaleapca – Isacel.
We will camp at a traditional fisherman’s hut on the Litcov channel.
If time is on our side, we will have the chance to contribute in the kitchen and learn some culinary secrets.
Total distance of day 1: approx. 16km, low difficulty.
DAY 2: We paddle downstream on Litcov and enter the hidden places of Lake Obretinciuc, searching for the swans and the pelicans. We arrive in Crisan village and go to the camping place. We will have a well deserved shower and plenty of fish to gain strength.
Total distance of day 2: approx. 17 km, low difficulty, some passings across vegetation.
DAY 3: We are heading downstream to the Caraorman ridge where we will visit the Caraorman Forest and have a delicious lunch. On our way we might encounter some floating reed islets that we have to cross.

DAY 4: For those up to the task, we wake up at about 5:00 in the morning to go and see the sunrise on the Iacob lake. Then, when everybody wakes up, we head to Lake Gherasim through a beautiful hidden waterway, go across lake Isac and arrive at the first camping place, where our authentic fisherman, endowed with many stories of sailing and fishing awaits us. Late in the evening, we can go see the sunset on the Potcoava lake.
Total distance of day 4: approx. 16 km, intermediate difficulty, some passings across vegetation. +4km for the sunrise +3km for sunset
DAY 5: A short route, as in the first day, passing through Gorgova Lake and ending the adventure in Mahmudia. We’ll have just enough time for each of us to arrive home by the end of the evening.
Total distance of day 5: approx. 16 km, low difficulty.
* Not included: transfer from home to Mahmudia/ Murighiol, parking tickets, breakfast and lunch for all other days.
The kayaks are made of wood and fiberglass, single, double or triple. They are all very stable. The triple is recommended for a family with a child (or instead of the child, we can put more equipment.
The maximum capacity in the wooden kayaks is 12 people. If the number of participants exceed, there will also be plastic kayaks.
In the kayak, anyone and anything can get wet. I recommend that all luggage be put in waterproof bags or put in plastic bags (garbage bags). Do not take bulky bags. Small luggage sits much better in the luggage compartment than large ones. DO NOT take anything with you that you do not really need, you will NOT have room in the kayak for too many luggage
