What you'll do

The meeting point is in front of Manuc's Inn (Hanul lui Manuc), Unirii Square, downtown Bucharest. The transfer to Comana Natural Park is done by our minibus (40 km, ~45minutes). Upon arrival we will provide you with all the equipment needed (kayak, paddle, life vests, drybags) and safety instructions. During the 3- hour tour we will pass through the middle of the wetland reservation, immersing ourselves in the beauty of this place. We will be surrounded by birds, natural vegetation and we will have the chance to relax... in an active way :). Somewhere in the middle of the nature is a special place where we will stop, sit around a campfire and eat the best stew/grill (vegan version available), cooked traditionally in a cauldron. On the way back we will visit the Comana Paper Mill, a workshop-museum, which revives, keeps and transmits forward Romanian and universal crafts traditions. Here we will get to see how paper and other beautiful artifacts are hand-crafted by beautiful people. The road back will take 45 minutes, therefore at around 5pm we will be back in front of Manuc's Inn, Unirii Square.
