Gliding through the narrow gorges of the spectacular Iron Gates. Taking a boat trip on the Danube Delta in search of white pelicans.

  • Days 4-5 - Belgrade

    We arrive in Belgrade this afternoon; and while remaining in dock until tomorrow evening, we have plenty of time to discover the ‘White City’. On our included walking tour on day 5, we unfold the city’s chaotic past as we learn about the legacies of Habsburg, Ottoman and Socialist rule. We also take in the Republic Square, Saint Sava Cathedral and Kalemegdan Fortress. In your spare time, perhaps wander along the lively pedestrian boulevard flanked by historical buildings.

    Resting on the bend of the Danube, Vidin offers beautiful riverside views.

  • Day 9 - Tulcea

    We arrive in Romania this morning as we dock in Tulcea. The city itself is home to some great museums and a 19th-century church, but we’re using it as a base to explore the famed Danube Delta. Our included excursion will see us bob along through forests with a local guide looking out for birds and wildlife. During the summer, 350 species of bird gather here, so it’s a real must for twitchers.
