Stoke Travel Festivals That You Have to Do

written by local expert Becky Rogers

Becky is an avid rock climber and outdoor enthusiast and is now living in France as an expat. When she is not writing about travel gear and various destinations she has visited during her travels, you can find her playing with her two dogs.

If you’ve been with us from the very beginning, you would have seen Adventure in You grow from the basic travel resource blog that it was to the epic what-would-we-do-without-this-travel-blog that it has become today!

Of course, we are completely biased in this way of thinking, but we do think that it’s important to toot your own horn once in a while.

So, to do just that, we want to announce another exciting collaboration. To kick off our Europe travels, we have recently partnered up with Stoke Travel, a ridiculously cool and fun company that boasts flexible and affordable and dare we say unique party experiences around the continent.

After the tough decision not to do van life anymore (due to lack of time and to Anna’s ankle accident), The Adventure in You team decided to spend the next few months traveling around Europe instead, covering awesome festivals and epic adventures. Take a look at what’s in store for us and why we’re opting to partner with Stoke Travel and a few of their festivals which you need to put on your travel list.

Stoke Travel: “Party Travel for the Open-minded International”

When we first heard of Stoke Travel, we immediately knew that this was a partnership waiting to happen. They offer the most affordable experiences at the world’s best and craziest festivals and destinations which is something that we love. Featuring an authentic feel, a flexible schedule and options to suit every type of budget, it’s definitely right up our alley.

Honed as the favorite choice for backpackers, gap year gappers, friends looking to save a buck and solo travelers flyin’ solo, we were overwhelmed with feelings of nostalgia as Stoke Travel takes us back to our roots of when we first started traveling.

Working with a unique company and a super fun gang, here are a few of the best fiestas and festival experiences that are worth joining.

✨The 1 Thing We Never Leave Home Without…

Travel Insurance

Coming from someone who has been traveling the world for the last 8 years AND has been in the hospital 2x, travel insurance is something everyone NEEDS to get. Get a quote below!

Stoke Travel Running of the Bulls Festival

It has music, it has great food, it has city-wide sangria-soaked streets and a healthy dose of adrenaline filled bull runs; it is Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls Festival! While the dangerously exciting bull runs are the lure itself to Pamplona in July, thousands of people also flock here to watch the spectacle take place. San Fermin (local lingo for the festival) is a whole 10 days of celebration and good times.

If this crazy once in a lifetime experience is on your bucket list too, then you should consider doing it with Stoke Travel. Not only will they make this festival one to remember (even more so than it already is) but they will take care of you in the best ways possible.

Offering a chill out campsite complete with awesome guides, swimming pools and enough food and drinks to keep the whole European continent alive, this is one place that you’ll never want to leave (but you’ll have to for obvious reasons).

I will be covering this event and am personally looking forward to a fun few days of excitement and parties!


  • 4th-15th July
  • 5 minutes of running with the bulls every festival day
  • 23 hours and 55 minutes of fiestas and siestas every day
  • Camping / glamping accommodation
  • Hearty breakfasts and delicious dinners every day
  • Unlimited beer and sangria (€10/day)

Stoked in the Park Pamplona

A fiesta within a fiesta, if you will, Stoked in the Park, is the perfect festival to attend whilst living it up at Pamplona’s San Fermines.  If the crazy party in the city just isn’t enough or even if it is but you want to switch it up, you can continue the festivities all night long in this magical playground. Set on a big and beautiful campsite outside of Pamplona, you can spend your days full of live music, pool parties,  great people, even better grub, and sangria by the gallon!

If you want to make the most of your time in Pamplona, if you want to squeeze everything you possibly can out of the Running of the Bulls festival, you can drink in every last drop with Stoke Travel. Their Stoked in the Park event not only ensures that you experience the city, but it also guarantees that you eat good food, get some rest and get those dancing feet a’dancing.

  • Live music from international acts
  • Dance parties and pool parties

Psst...Want in on a Secret? 🤫


We've scoured the internet for the best ALL-AROUND travel shoe and Tropicfeel wins by far. We've taken ours through rivers, jungles, and cities and they're still alive and kickin'. Check them out below.

La Tomatina Festival with Stoke Travel

Haven’t we all dreamed of shoving a hand full of food into our friend’s faces? Ahem…I mean, food fights, we’ve all wanted to be a part of a food fight right?

Ah, who am I kidding?

Our friend would just as quickly smush food in our faces, that’s just what love is. To express your love for your friends and to be a part of La Tomatina Festival, one of the world’s biggest food fights, head to Buñol just outside the city of Valencia to make that dream a reality. Yes, this is purely a tomato battle, and yes, it is probably the only place in the world where it’s acceptable to shove food in a complete stranger’s face. Actually, it’s encouraged.

What could possibly be more fun than arming yourself with as many tomatoes as you can carry and hurling them at each other and anything that moves?

Answer: not much, not much at all.

This is a war of love, even among strangers, and it’s all in the name of pure entertainment. To get even more out of this incredible experience, pile on the fun by staying at Stoke Travel’s beachside campsite or in a three-star hotel in Valencia. Not only will you get transfers to and from the giant fight, but you’ll also benefit from on-site entertainment, after-parties, and unlimited beer and sangria!

We are doing this event coming August so if anyone is up for a fun few days of tomatoes and laughter, come join us in this epic event.


  • 27th-31st August
  • Ketchup Party
  • Giant tomato fight
  • La Tomatina after party
  • Camping accommodation or three-star hotel

San Sebastian Surf Camp

Are you a surfing God or Goddess traveling the world looking for the perfect wave? Are you a complete newbie?

Whatever level of surfer you are, San Sebastian is a stunning spot in the Basque Country that is an actual surfer’s paradise.

In a huge converted farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills and forests, in the small Basque village of Aia, a unique surf camp experience awaits. If the setting isn’t already making you feel some serious chill vibes, then how do days filled with surfing, yoga, eating good food and chilling under the sun with a beer sound? At the Stoke Surf House in San Sebastian, you and your surf family can make this surfing experience whatever you want it to be.

Stoke Travel Oktoberfest

As the world’s biggest beer festival, it’s no wonder that Oktoberfest attracts more than six million people every year from Munich, Bavaria, Germany and all over the world. A hub of beer drinking by the liter, hearty German food, and dancing on the tables, it is two weeks of non-stop fun. For those who have the stomachs, outside of the beer halls, you’ll find huge roller coasters, swings, and fun houses just waiting to be used and abused.

So we have music, we have food, we have giant steins that we are cheers-ing with our friends, what we haven’t mentioned yet is the icing on the cake: Stoketoberfest. Yes, you heard me right. Honed as the second best party in Munich, Stoketoberfest is Stoke Travel’s festival within a festival where you can carry on the party at the campsite before falling into bed. Full of live music, drinking games, and a dance floor that won’t stop spinning, there’s a free beer for the last man (or woman) standing!


  • 20th September – 8th October
  • Beer festival entry
  • Stoketoberfest campsite parties
  • Camping / glamping accommodation
  • Hearty breakfasts and delicious dinners every day

Why you should Party On with Stoke Travel

Although we are not really the party-till-you-fall-over type, we do love a good ol’ jug of sangria and a good time.

That’s the great thing about Stoke Travel, is that it caters to everyone; it may offer the party atmosphere and all the tools for having a crazy experience, but it also provides you with experienced guided tours to help you make the most of the destinations, food, water, and a comfortable place to crash during these festivals.

With fun that is flexible to you, what more could you want from your travels?

So, why get stoked this summer? And why do it with Stoke Travel? Well, the obvious first answer is the incredible experiences. Stoke Travel provides accommodation with so many extras in some of the biggest festivals in the world all throughout Europe, so what better way to travel the continent than to go to some of these places especially for these events? We love local festivals and traveling when there are cultural celebrations, so if you can, try and plan some of your traveling around these (you won’t regret it!).

As well as the giant parties (if you need another reason), Stoke Travel also organizes everything from your accommodation and your meals to your transport to and from the festivals and events.

Remember, use our booking code – STOKEADVENTURE – to get the unlimited sangrias and beers during these events

I don’t know about you, but attending these amazing festivals is one thing, knowing that I can go to someone for help or advice is another. These may be incredible experiences, but there are a lot of people that attend them and there’s a lot of alcohol involved, so it’s really comforting to know that you are being taken care of. You can’t put a price on safety.

Did I also mention that the guys over at Stoke Travel are all about fun? All you have to do is bring yourself and a friend and the willingness to embrace all the crazy and entertaining things that will surely happen to you during one of these events and they will sort out the rest from singing kumbaya around the surf camp fire to beers and bulls.

We recommend that you consider upgrading to glamping at the festivals to make them extra special and then you can use our booking code to get yourself unlimited sangria and beer for free the whole time that you are there!

What are you waiting for? Go forth and get stoked in Europe. We might even see you there! stoked-party
