STRATEGY PLAN FOR SUSTAINABLE TOURISM IN THE DANUBE DELTA (october 2008)
Table of contents

The natural and cultural values of the Danube Delta represent the tourism resources.

  • Recreation tourism, offered by the tourism companies, with accommodation in one of the hotels on the DDBR territory or on floating hotels, combining trips on channels and lakes with sunbaths on the beaches along the Black Sea coast.
     
  • Discovery tourism (itinerant), individual or in groups on organized trips, suitable for small visitors groups, giving them the occasion to explore the variety of the wild landscapes, combining trips by row boats on picturesque channels with hiking along channels or sand dunes.
     
  • Specialized tourism – scientific (for ornithologists, specialists, researchers, students).
     
  • Special youth programs (to discover, understand and value the nature).
     
  • Rural tourism (the guests are hosted and guided by locals) has a long tradition in the DDBR, many local families offering their services. This type of tourism represents an important potential to raise the local population revenues.

  • Tourism for water sports or photo-safari.
     
  • Tourism for angling is very appreciated by visitors of all ages.
  • Sports hunting are forbidden by the Law No. 82/1993, on the establishing of the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve.
