I have always wanted to be in Pamplona for this crazy Spanish tradition and Stoke Travel was the best choice! It was so much fun to stay at the campsite with so many international people and party with them. I was travelling solo and I met amazing friends. The staff was friendly and put an extra effort in making sure that everyone was having their best time!
I higly recommend travelling with Stoke Travel and I will defnitely sign up for the other Spanish festivals, see you in San Vino and Tomatina!
Thank you guys!

I had so much run at Stoke Travel's Oktoberfst campsite! The open bar was a game-changer! Make sure to rug up because it gets pretty cold in Munich at that time of year but a couple of layers and a beer blanket later and you'll be fine! My mates and I had the time of our lives.

Just be aware that it is camping so the weather can be a big factor. But this is something that is completely out of their hands. When the inside of my tent got a bit wet they gave me new sleeping bags and dried out my tent for me. Absolute legends!

Amazing experience

I stayed at the stoke campsite cause it was super affordable. I didn't know to much about it before my stay, but i was blown away. The campsite was super fun, upon arrival i got a beer and the beers kept coming, the unlimited drinks is a great deal!! The party was pretty epic with some great DJ's. The staff was super helpfull and fun! The beerhalls in town were pretty epic, but all being said, i preferred the vibe and party on the campsite. Make sure you add on the unlimited drinks and you are guaranteed a good time!!

  • Great party
  • Amazing vibe
  • Great place to make friends
  • small tents

Better in Theory

They did not provide all of the camping supplies they said they would. Most of the people in the girls section either did not have a mattress, pillow or sleeping bag. In my two person tent we were only had one sleeping bag. Also, for anyone who assumes it's an air mattress it is really just a pad. I would have enjoyed stoke more if the sleeping arrangements weren't tiny and not supplied. The weather was also awful, which stoke can't control, but another reason I would never plan to camp for Oktoberfest.

  • Atmosphere
  • Live Music
  • No sleeping bag or pillow
  • Very small tents
  • Weird breakfast

Amazing!! The unlimited beer and sangria was what originally sold me on it, but it was more than that. Great place for people who like to party and have fun. Be aware of their activities, not for shy personalities, but a great way to meet new people. The food was amazing and accommodation were good, bathroom got a little messy at some point but would do it all over again.

I would highly recommend it to other school leavers who are travelling at the beginning of the year so won't be in Europe for the bigger party, Oktoberfest.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would bring more of my friends. Even though I made a lot of new friends, I also wish more of my friends were there.

Chris van der Jagt

Job Title
Barcelona Bookings Manager

Chris, tell us about your role at Stoke Travel.

I'm responsible for all incoming bookings from Barcelona or related to Barcelona. This includes our City Breaks, Boat Parties, and Day trips and activities in Barcelona. Aside from this, I do some back office work to get our company optimized on online travel agencies such as and Expedia.

What is your favorite travel memory?

Springfest with Stoke Travel. I worked on the campsite there which was a party in itself. The beer halls were very fun as well. It was snowing and very cold the week I was there, but this did not interfere with the fun we had with each other and the customers!

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I started as an intern and am now a full-time employee. I wrote my graduation thesis for Stoke Travel and had such a good time with the company that I wanted to stay. Luckily for me, Stoke was thinking the same thing about me.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

Oktoberfest. I went to Springfest and it was amazing. I'd love to do it again, but bigger - and that's Oktoberfest. My colleagues all speak highly of it, that it's an enhanced version of Springfest, so I can't wait to get back to Munich and the beer halls.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

Stoke has a very laid back and flexible team with a personal touch towards the customers. As a customer you are not just a number here to make money off, people take the time for you and add a personal touch to it. You can actually meet us at the festivals and have a beer!

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The personal touch makes it stand out from the other travel companies who are getting more and more automated. We don't have automated replies when you communicate with us through email and you will always get an actual person on the phone when you call us!

Another success factor is the flexibility. We are able to move things around for your benefit, it's not this is this and that is that.
