SAN FERMIN FESTIVAL AND THE RUNNING OF THE BULLS

The San Fermín Festival is one of a kind event that takes place in Pamplona every July. An army of locals dressed in white with red neckerchiefs will welcome you to one of the wildest festivals on earth: the running of the bulls through the narrow streets of the old town. Watching this show (or actually running in front of the bulls!) is on every traveler’s bucket list, that’s why the city is packed with people from around the world, creating a vibrant atmosphere that lasts for days.

SUGGESTED PROGRAM

Available from the 6th of July to the 14th of July every year

2 NIGHTS / 3 DAYS



DAY 1 | ARRIVAL TO PAMPLONA

Arrival in Pamplona by train from Madrid or Barcelona. Private transfers and check-in at the hotel. Dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant Europa or at some of the traditional tables in the capital of Navarre.

DAY 2 | PAMPLONA

Meet your host at 6 am – not later since streets access is cut very early –  and watch the encierro or running of the bulls from one of the privileged balconies, where you’ll enjoy an early breakfast. Get a preview of the warming up area at the back of Santo Domingo and then have some churros as a second breakfast. Go to the bullpens to learn more about the bulls running the encierros. Spend the day on your own or lunch at a txoko. The daily fireworks show is at 11 pm.

DAY 3 | PAMPLONA, STAY OR EXTEND YOUR TRIP

You can decide to stay in the city and attend some bull fighting from VIP seats and keep enjoying the festival atmosphere or decide to leave and extend your journey to the Basque Country.

PAMPLONA

Away from the buzz of the running of the bulls, the city of Pamplona is waiting to be discovered. With a rich architectural legacy, including a beautiful cathedral and 16th-century fortifications, Pamplona will delight you with its medieval flair. Wander around the city center soaking in all its charm, explore the green areas of the city and enjoy the Spanish lifestyle eating pinchos in the heart of Navarra, just like Hemingway used to do.
