About us


Atu Travel is a Romanian travel agency which organizes a great variety of nature and wildlife tours in Danube Delta, Dobrogea and Carpathians and also cultural tours in Transylvania and Bucovina region.

Atu Travel was created in 2005 by Ibis Tours (Danube Delta and Dobrogea tour operator since 1995) especially for organizing tailor-made wildlife, trekking and cultural tours for smaller groups up to 10 persons.

We organize our programs carefully using hand-picked lodges and guides who we know will light up your holiday. The tours are very flexible, depending on the tourist's demands.

Our guides are enthusiastic and professional with extensive conservation knowledge, good experience of the local area and the right personal skills. They are more than familiar with the places to be visited, always ready to answer your questions or to find right solutions in emergency situations.
