An escape tour to the Danube Delta – Covid 19 Collection

Scroll down to content

Our team from Romania and Hungary made a short visit to the Danube Delta in mid June after borders between EU countries started to reopen.  We have missed so much the area we could not afford not to visit the Danube Delta wetlands. No doubt nature and wildlife had an absolutely positive benefit on this unprecedented pandemic situation.

While driving around the lakes and channels we could find lots of interesting species in every corner and enjoyed some fantastic time with our birds in this year.

Please enjoy a selection of images during this visit in the second half of June. Hopefully life will come back in the normal track soon and we can spend much more time with our guests in this magical place.

No doubt the Danube Delta offers a unique wildlife photography experiences in Europe.

Take care of your health and see you soon!
