After exceptionally fulfilled and fun weekends in spring and autumn previous year we continued to organize a similar event at spring!

“We explored a nice part of the Czech Republic, met new people from different countries, spoke English, had a lot of fun, we were hiking, eating and drinking well, … and much more, of course ;-).
It was weekend full of trips “about 20 km long”, beer and rum, shortcuts which were longer, but worse (no, I´m kidding ;-)… and a lot of laughter!”

(done) The Celts in the Iron Mountains (weekend of 11th – 13th of October 2013)

The second round of the Celtic weekend in the Iron Mountains went even crazier than the first one. The rain did not allow us to visit the first castle during the evening. So we went there during the night. We shined all ruins by candles and shared scary stories. The other days we enjoyed boats, traditional pig slaughters, castles, beer, campfire, puppet museum and much more…

“A great weekend, we did so much stuff it felt like five days not two. A very different perspective on the Czech Republic than what you get from just going to the main cities, full of unexpected surprises and a lot of fun. Good food, good alcohol, good people, (occasionally) good weather- what more do you need? “ (Ellan, Wales)

“Exciting, crazy but amazing :)” (Szilvia , Hungary)

“The weekend was high energy and tons of fun! So many conversations with awesome people as we walked through such beautiful scenery. I now have a greater understanding of Czech history and Czech culture that I would not have had without this trip. “ (Kara, USA)

“Explore the trails and admire the beautiful landscapes of the Iron Mountains, listen to long tales and amazing stories, drink homemade mead and feast on roasted pork and uncover some of the history from the Celtic tribes that lived on this lands. “ (Bernardo, Portugal)

“Amazing weekend spent with awesome people!” (Pavel, Czech Republic)

“Awsome! 3 days where you WILL (no matter happens not even raining like hell) see what almost anyone in Czech republic sees. You’ll travel trough lakes, castles, see celts traditions, some adventures at night, you’ll see some crazy people going into freezing water, awsome lizards, wood statues and you’ll live those days like it would be a life-time goal. In the end you’ll be dirt, exhausted, but most of all…happy for all the experience you earn during this trip. All the pain in your legs on the following day is worth and you’ll have a strange feeling that you could overrun it all and have one lifetime experience 🙂 “ (Tiago, Portugal)

“Good event on nature with its own character. Very interesting and joyful. Brilliant atmosphere and socializing” (Ilja, Belarus)

“The weekend spent in Iron mountains was really amazing. I know this area well, but in this weekend I saw it with different eyes. It was really strong experience: )” (Pavla, Czech Republic)
