After we greet you warmly at the beach of Nikopol, we will give you a quick safety briefing. Then we get on the boats and continue along the great river.

First, we will introduce you to the Bulgarian “island” Srednyak (now more like a peninsula, as it is “fused” with the Romanian coast).
We continue to the island Lakat (Elbow), covered with a dense jungle of trees and vines, it is home to the largest eagle in Europe.

Next is Katunara Island (depending on the water level, we can make a short stop on it), which is a small island but with a vast beach.

Followed by sailing in calmer waters and passing a newly created floodplain forest. A number of waterfowl usually rest here. We will pass along the southern coast of Gradina Island – in the past used as a watermelon garden, and today it grows giant poplars.

Return to the town of Nikopol with a stop on the shore in front of the rock church “St. Stefan”, dug into the picturesque white limestones of the Nikopol Plateau.


The boat trip begins and ends on the beach of Nikopol – a sloping and convenient place to board our boats. There is a parking lot nearby, and in the summer there is a working fast food restaurant.
