08:00 – 10:00 Breakfast.
We start the day’s trip to Letea Forest and Sulina. Letea forest, the Jungle of the Danube Delta, with great trees combined with sand dunes, wild horses. The trip is done with our motor boats and horse driven carriages. This is an UNESCO Sanctuary, a fairytale landscape, a forest with many stories about Elfs, where the clocks have stopped ticking many centuries ago. This is the most Northern Sub Tropical Forest in Europe. Traveling through the forest, the landscape changes from exotic plants to sand dunes. We can observe from a distance the wild horses that still live here.
We extend the trip to Letea with the trip to Sulina.
Lunch will be served at a restaurant in Sulina.
Sulina, is the most Eastern point of Europe both on the Danube and the Black Sea. We will travel to the point where the Danube flows into the Black Sea, and you will receive a “Certificate of confirmation” that you have visited this point. We can not leave Sulina without a walk on the beach with the softest sand in Romania and a bath in the Black Sea, or if you wish, a visit to the Pirate’s cemetery.
Gala Dinner is served back at the resort at 20:00, with waiters fully dressed in their best garments and white gloves.
