Ideas for a Halloween getaway

Halloween

This year like so many others we will have to think about how to make a scary getaway on Halloween, and of course there are many possible ideas, whether we make a great long weekend or if we wait for the following weekend, although it is necessary to organize the getaway now, because we know that as the day approaches the prices will rise.

There are many different ideas to make a fun halloween getaway, and we can enjoy parties and places where different events are held. We can also devise a special getaway ourselves during these dates so that we will remember it for a long time.

Rural getaway

Going on a rural getaway is a great idea all year round. It helps us to relax, to get in touch with nature and to enjoy the silence and tranquility. In addition, in these getaways you can rent entire houses to go with a group of friends, which is usually a very fun plan. In the case of Halloween, we can take advantage of rent a house, in order to make a terrifying party in conditions. In this getaway we can enjoy the isolated environment that a rural house is to prepare a few surprises for our guests, so that it is an unforgettable escape.

Adventure getaway

If, on the other hand, what you like is adventure, you can always choose this getaway to do one of those things that scare you but at the same time attract you. Go paragliding, go rafting or some other adventure activity that increases our pulsations and brings out our more daring side. We can also take the opportunity to camp outdoors and thus have the ideal setting to tell horror stories. The best thing about this plan is that it is very simple and we can do it without planning anything. We will simply have to get hold of an adventure pack or take our tent and go out to a place that we like in the middle of nature.

Visit to Dracula's castle

Bran Castle

If you have time and want to plan a special and spectacular getaway, why not visit Dracula's castle. It is actually known as the Bran Castle, a very peculiar and well preserved medieval mansion, located in Romania, in the town of Bran. It is a castle that has more than 60 rooms, connected by passages and some even by underground tunnels. If we see its structure from the outside, they look like a set of towers and rooms that emerge in the middle of nature. Today it is a castle that has been converted into a museum and remains open to tourists. It is said that Bram Stoker was inspired by him to create the novel of Dracula, although this was never the residence of Vlad the Impaler, from which the character of Dracula appears to be inspired.

Look for meigas in Galicia

Halloween

You don't have to go far to hear about witches, legends and stories that are not explained with pure logic, so if you don't want to move a lot there are some interesting places in the Peninsula. In Galicia there is a great tradition in the meigas, because as they say there, 'Haberlas, hailas'. Today, All Saints' Day is celebrated, but there is also the Samaín gaining strength, the Celtic tradition in which the Halloween party was inspired, so we can put into practice our skill when making faces in a pumpkin.

Coven in Zugarramurdi

Zugarramurdi cave

We continue talking about witches, and there is no better known story about witches than the one that arises from the town of Zugarramurdi. This can be a great visit on your Halloween getaway, to visit the local cave in which the witches and sorcerers covens were supposedly held. This case went down in history for being one of the most important of the Inquisition of Logroño, where harsh penalties were carried out on some accused of witchcraft. The visit is certainly not very long, but we can also see the Museum of the Witches that has been created around this theme and of course the small town that today is a little more popular due to this case.

Halloween with children

    What gives me deep regret is that the idea of ​​covens and witches continues to be promoted in Zugarramurdi. What happened there was the murder and torture of peasant women, but we continue to laugh at it. What fun, visiting a place of torture. And by the way, you take a little witch from the souvenir shop after visiting the museum. Yes it is a terrifying visit, on the level of a concentration camp, but it is not to put it on the list of things to do on Halloween. These women deserve dignified treatment and not the perpetuation of the image of the witch, the broom, and the aquiline nose with the wart. Innocent women were killed there, not witches who organized covens. That would not hurt to document it either.
