In Bârnova commune (Vișan village) is located Gramma Wine Cellar, a local wine producer that organizes the “La Vie” (“To the Vineyard”) Festival in September with exhibitors amongst the local producers and concerts to celebrate grape harvesting. The nearby Bârnova Forest is a Natura 2000 protected site and is the main recreational area for mountain biking and trail running enthusiasts. The dozens of trails in the woods provide the connoisseurs with countless trails that can test their bicycles and endurance. On our way to the third hill of Iaşi, we meet Noah’s Ark Park, created by a charitable foundation, which has set up a playground and a mini-farm for the children. A few hundred meters away, we reach the Hamak Recreational Club, where a well-deserved stop will help us regain our energies for the second half of the route.
The Hamak Adventure Park, on the way between Bârnova Monastery and Repedea Plateau, is the ideal place to escape from the daily life. The leisure club offers a wide range of activities such as hiking, climbing, adventure park, paintball, archery, fishing or bike rental. It is noted the club’s involvement in organizing and supporting active events, starting with trail running or mountain biking. A series of events such as Bulz & Blues, Harvest Festival or music festivals and concerts are organized at Hamak. The intention of the Hamak Club is to bring as many fun and non-invasive fun ways into the middle of nature where hammocks are waiting for you. So, on the way to Repedea Reserve, stop enjoying the tranquility and comfort of Hamak’s leisure park. From here, we bravely face the steepest part of the route to reach Repedea Plateau.
