Padina Fest

Jul 2017

Padina Fest started in 2010 and it is held annually on the Padina Plateau in the Bucegi Mountains at an altitude of 1500 meters. The fest is addressed to those who love and cherish nature, aiming to promote the mountain and to educate the tourists in an eco-friendly manner.

Padina FestAt Padina Fest you will have five days full of good music, adrenaline and very exciting activities. Mountain climbing enthusiasts can test their abilities on rappel and zip line and can practice rock climbing on a panel. Those who wish to discover the touristic landmarks of the massif can rent bikes and hike the marked routes. You can also take part in competitions specific to mountain camps: rounders, slack line trials, Military Camp, Treasure Hunt and the 'Padina Challenge' obstacle race.

 Those who wish to relax and enjoy the fresh air are invited to join the workshops organized on the plateau, to enjoy theatre plays or film projections from TIFF, or just to doze off in hammocks under the shadows of the trees. In the evening, fun is guaranteed by artists from the country and abroad who give concerts in the heart of the mountains. Lodging is nothing to worry about, you can camp next to friends and tell tales around a camp fire all night long, or you can check in at one of the lodges around the plateau. In the morning, gear up and set off on mountain trails to find the best places in Bucegi: nearby there is the Boboci Lake, Zanoagei and Tatarului Gorges, Ialomicioara cave, Babele and the Sphinx.

For the cyclists, Padina Festival organizes The Bucegi Marathon, a two trial competition- Trial Running and MTB Cross-country. The tracks are arranged for the experimented as well as for amateur cyclists.

Padina Fest is a unique event, a chance to enjoy nature’s charm and to try the adventure at high altitude. The escape from the busy cities, the fresh air, the splendid views, friends with whom you will share the tent and good music, all contribute to a holiday atmosphere.
