What to wear on a Danube Delta trip

The most important aspect is that you wear comfortable clothing, suitable for the season in which you want to travel. This means outdoor clothing, adhesive footwear, a cap or a hat (important in order to avoid sunburns), and light luggage, preferably a small backpack. Please keep in mind that during the boat ride, you will encounter strong winds, therefore you will need a wind stopper.

We recommend cotton or synthetic pants, long-sleeved blouses and polar jumper if necessary. We also advise you to avoid skirts, dresses, slippers or high heels. Please keep in mind that you will get on a boat, walk through the forests, and if it rains, even walk on muddy terrain.

Packing checklist for a Danube Delta trip

In the summer the sun is very strong, therefore make sure not to forget a bottle of water, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. When walking through the forests you will need to use an insect repellent in order to protect yourself from mosquito bites. If you choose to take a longer trip, you should also take some snacks with you, in case you get hungry until lunch.

If you take the trip during the winter, you will need extreme equipment. A waterproof hat, gloves, insulating body equipment, waterproof winter suit and even a hood for the harsh windy days. If you take a longer trip, you may be cold in boots, therefore we recommend paslari which are a kind of felt boots that you can find in any fishing shop. To be sure that you’ll be warm, add thick socks and you are ready to go.

How to protect your electronics during a Danube Delta trip

If you desire to take your camera with you or any other electronics, you should use rain covers or waterproof bags during the boat trip. For those who are passionate about photography, we strongly advise you to make sure you have enough batteries and storage space because there are numerous beautiful temptations and there are many who remain without one or the other mid-trip.
