The kayak tour is not a race, we paddle slowly, is more a Discover Danube Delta trip. We stop from time to time for relaxation, we visit shallow water lakes, invaded of vegetation which is a shelter for many species of birds and animals. When we find places with many birds like pelicans, herons, white tailed eagles, ibises, coots, ducks, geese, swans and other, we can make a stop to watch them and take some photos.

The average of the distance per day is about 20 km. It is not too much, every one can do it.
