San Fermin: for the experiences seeker

San Fermin is the red-and-white fiesta for the adventurous and authentic experiences seeker. 

The Running of the Bulls 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.

Let Paladar y Tomar host you in a unique lifetime experience and don’t miss the essence.

THE RUNNING OF THE BULLS FROM A PRIVATE BALCONY

Meet your host at 6 am – not later since streets access is cut very early –  to get ready to watch the encierro or running of the bulls from one of the privileged balconies. A well welcome comfort breakfast will be served. Previously, get a preview of the warming up area at the back of Santo Domingo street, you'll get to know the entire circuit and the rules for participants.

When the encierro is over, it's time for some churros those fritters that will probably drive you crazy. Go to the bullpens to learn more about the bulls running, and feel Pamplona's excitement as one more.

Spend the day on your own or lunch at a txoko. The daily fireworks show is at 11 pm.

Day 3

Pamplona

PAMPLONA

Party can be overwhelming, we propose a private-guided city tour of Pamplona, the capital of the Kingdom of Navarra (now, just known as Navarra), brought to the international spotlight in Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises. One of the highlights of this day is a guided visit of the Cathedral of Royal Saint Mary, with its temple, bell tower (with the second-largest church bell in Spain), cloister and fascinating Diocesan Museum.  

CORRIDA (OPTIONAL) 

If you wish to attend some bull fighting to live first hand one of the main attractions of San Fermin, we can handle VIP access. 

Our guests never feel foreigners, our goal is that you immerse in the local culture and feel like anyone else. We want you to feel the vibe and excitement every local feels in San Fermin.

Some Highlights

BULL-FIGHTING EXPERTS
Our host is a well renowned personality in the world of brave bulls. You'll never be in better hands and experience San Fermin in a more intense and truly way. We make sure you get the best seats and attend the best bullfightings during San Fermin.
ATTEND THE ENCERRILLO
The "encierrillo" is the transfer in the evening of the six bulls from the bullfight the day after, from the "corrales of the gas" to the stockyard in Santo Domingo street, the point of departure of every running. It is done without runners, in privacy and silence, it is a mystic moment. The access is very restricted.
VISIT PRESTIGIOUS BRAVE BULLS ESTATES
A native and exclusive animal from the Iberian Peninsula, experience the brave bull away from bullfighting’s spectacle and instead be guided through some of the most renowned estates with a concentration around his harmony with the environment and relationship with man. One of the most distinguished rustic-chic experiences.
ACCESS TO RESTRICTED AREAS
Our expert team will get you to some restricted areas, this will suit big toro aficionados.
BULL TRIMMERS EXHIBITIONS
Every year takes place the Trimmers Festival, described as bullfighting acrobatics. Basically the recortadores do incredible tricks and jumps over and around the bull in competition; they're real athletes. Man versus animal in pure state.
