A unique way to explore Danubius (old name of the Dunav River) is to jump into the adventure of "rafting".
Early in the morning or at sunset the river slowly flows and you can see the sun reflecting on the water surface. Fishing boats had just come out. This is the perfect time to meet the wildlife of the Danube River. The raft is moving with the flow, calm and quiet, and the shelter built from natural materials on the top of it make it look like a part of the landscape. This is the best way to get closer to the sandy islands and old flooded willow trees and elms. There you can see the nests of many rare waterbird species. Rafting is also a great time for fishing, recreation amid bird songs, outdoor cooking, sun bathing and swimming in the river
Rafting is available during the period from May to October and is suitable adventure for groups of up to ten people.
If you want to dive into the wonderful world of the Wild River, to discover its mysteries and silence scattered by bird songs you just need to contact the local "Association for development of tourism in the region to the Tutrakan."
This way you will be able to encounter unique not only for Bulgaria but also for Europe landscapes and species, to be guests of the local fishermen and to prepare together with them typical for this region fish dishes seasoned with wild herbs.
