Summer camps with interactive activities at Durău Mountain Resort

Surely, an unforgettable holiday!



Located in a sunny clearing in the North-West of Ceahlău Mountain at 820 m altitude, Durău Resort is famous for the summer camps organized here, every year. The most interesting fact is that camps not only offer mountain hikes and sightseeing tours, but also a large number of interactive activities including sports, theatre, dance, visual arts, gardening, architecture, photography, film, experimental labs for kids, modeling, workshops for the development of handicraft skills, equitation, team games, treasure hunting, karaoke, exercises for the development of survival skills and many other games in the adventure park. The program of each camp is designed in such a way as to ensure the development of multiple intelligence in children and teenagers and also help them to discover new passions, improve their communication skills, develop practical skills, stimulate their creativity, encourage  teamwork and many more.

 The resort, situated in Ceahlău commune, is one of the most famous in Neamț county, surrounded by old and impressive fir forests, representing also the starting point of two of the most frequented routes leading to Ceahlău Massif. The hiking trails lead towards Toaca Peak (1900 m) and Ocolaşul Mare Peak (1907 m), passing by Fântânele Chalet (1220 m). Following the route through Poiana Vesuri (1195 m), tourists can reach Duruitoarea Waterfall (1270 m) and end thier journey at Dochia Chalet (1750 m). Groups of children and, in general, all tourists visiting the area say that they always have an unforgetable experience, once engaged in hiking the mountain trails of Ceahlău. Thus, this holy mountain of Romanians is renowned for its overwhelming beauty, history and numerous legends and mysteries surrounding it.
