Itinerary

Wednesday 5 July - Pamplona Arrival

Welcome to Pamplona! Campsite check-in is available this afternoon from 3pm. Full arrival details will be emailed to you four weeks before the tour. Access from the heart of town is an easy local bus ride or 10-minute taxi ride.

This evening at 7pm we’ll depart the campsite for an orientation walk of the bull run course and Pamplona's old town centre. Tonight is the perfect chance to take a walk through the myriad of narrow streets and get your bearings before tomorrow's massive opening ceremony, while sampling the many tapas bars and classic restaurants that are dotted throughout the whole of the old town centre with the tour group.

Thursday 6 July - San Fermin Opening Ceremony

This morning we board our coach shuttle into the heart of town.

Today sees the opening ceremony of the San Fermin festival and the biggest street party you will ever see! People gather in front of the town hall where at midday Pamplona’s mayor lights the firework officially starting the festival. If you would prefer to avoid the tight crowds in front of the town hall you can watch the events unfold via the big screens in the main square.

The champagne & sangria then starts flying throughout the old town centre and an afternoon of unbelievable street partying follows. From the town hall and main square the party moves along to the St Cecilia Fountain and up to Mirador del Caballo Blanco (White Horse lookout).

Tonight the campsite will be abuzz with live entertainment getting the San Fermin crowds ready for tomorrow's first bull run.

Friday 7 July - First Bull Run, San Sebstian Day Trip & Pamplona Street Fiesta

This morning meet in front of the campsite at 6am ready for the ride into town where we get in position for the 8am bull run. To watch the bull run you have the option of finding a place along the street barricades or heading into the bull ring to watch the bulls and runners enter the stadium and the release of the year-old bulls into the arena. Anyone interested in renting a place on a balcony along the bull run course should look into that during the orientation walk on 5 July.

After the bull run we have our day trip to the amazing coastal town of San Sebastian, well regarded as one of Spain's most beautiful beaches and traditional old cities. It's a great day and sure to energize the batteries after the madness of the San Fermin festival!

This evening we jump on board our transfer into town ready for the huge nightly fiesta including street parties, massive fireworks display and loads of tapas bars pumping out the tunes. Tonight we head to Calle San Nicolas to get stuck into the San Fermin party action!

Saturday 8 July - Second Bull Run & Check-Out

This morning’s second running of the bulls takes off at 8am and this time you’ll be there with a trained eye. It’s a great chance to experience the running from a different vantage point and catch the thrills and spills of all the action!

If you are departing Pamplona straight after the morning bull run, simply take your bags with you on our shuttle coach into town in the morning and store them at the left luggage service inside Pamplona coach station.
