Running of the Bulls Package

Tour Description

Starting in the 1920´s, Ernest Hemingway shone a spotlight on this unique fiesta in Spain, San Fermin, or the Running of the Bulls.  Since then, Pamplona has been attracting participants from all over the world who come to experience this exciting festival that will send your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping. While this is the King fiesta of all fiestas, it takes a lot of logistical planning if you want to do things the right way and the safe way.  We can help with this and have the contacts to get you up close to the action.  In our 3 day package of Running of the Bulls, we provide a 4 star hotel, a guide to give you lots of know how so you can maximize your enjoyment, a balcony to see the bulls run and a ticket to the bullring to see the end of the ¨encierro¨ and the arrival of the bulls the last day.
You can opt to see some bullfights in the evening however, there are many other Navarran cultural activities to do at night if you want to really experience this festival the way the locals do.  Do you have children you want to bring to the festival?  We also have young kids and know the tricks, hours and have the means to assist you efficiently so you can safely have your kids watch and participate in this spectacle.  Perhaps you are interested in running with the bulls.  We can also provide information, instructions and safety tips to make it a once in a lifetime opportunity!

    Day 1: Welcome to Pamplona. You will first drop off your luggage at the hotel. Then, we will provide a guided tour of the city center to introduce you to the bulls itinerary so you are familiar when you see it the following days. Our guide is a local who knows the intricacies of the Festival and will explain the program in detail, where you need to be each day, at what time, in order to not miss any of the important stuff. He will facilitate the tickets to be at the bull ring for the arrival of the running the next morning. You have the afternoon to start getting acquainted, see some of the festival highlights, and enjoy the atmosphere.  We will also teach you about the exquisite tapas scene here.

    Day 2: A great full day packed with activities. Meet your guide early in the morning to head towards balcony where we will view the running of the bulls.  After the running of the bulls everyone in Pamplona flocks to the bars to have breakfast, then enjoy the atmosphere in the streets and try to hit some of the activities in the city hall program. In the afternoon you can see how they bring the horses to the bullring in the Paseo de Mulillas with traditional dresses. You have the choice of joining the bullfight for which we can get you tickets in advance. The night offers a great agenda of concerts in the street, local dances, etc.

    Day 3: Last but not least... 
    Today you have to be at the bullring at 7:15 AM to get a good spot to view the events. Crowds will fill it in a matter of minutes before 8 AM when the runners depart with the bulls in the direction of the ring.  Minutes later they will all run into the ring where you will view from the comfort of our seats. Following this, you have the exciting spectacle of the ¨mozos¨ to play with the young bulls. Afterward, we will have a good breakfast as we will be famished. Then it is time to check out and you can stay and enjoy more activities based on your travel schedule.

    If you choose to start on the 6th of July, then you will participate of the opening of the festival, the famous ¨Chupinazo¨ or rocket indicating the Fiestas have started and will last for 7 days.
