Fly to Bucharest via Istanbul on Turkish Airlines ( turkishairlines .com) and then take a train from Gara de Nord station to Tulcea, approximately six hours away. From Tulcea there are daily ferries to Sulina and Crisan and less regular services to Sfântu Gheorghe and other delta communities. Where to stay Tulcea has a handful of decent hotels, but once you are in the delta proper it is mostly a case of staying in family-run guesthouses or hotels. In the smaller communities you will simply need to ask someone to point you in the direction of a family that rents out their spare rooms. Alternatively, arrange a visit through DiscoveRomania ( discoveromania.ro), a leading Romanian tour company.
