Arriving mid festival has its bonuses, the biggest being you walk into a party that's in full swing. We'll get you right at the centre of the Running of the Bulls spectacular and the madness that is Pamplona with a chance to chill out on some of the best beaches of the Basque country. Ideal!
  • Itinerary

    Day 1: 12 July Check into your hostel anytime from 2pm. Tonight your Guide will take you on an orientation walk of San Sebastian and arrange a meet and greet at local bar. You'll be given a general overview of the trip and have your travelling taste-buds tantalised with what's to come. Have a sangria on us and try the local tapas, known as pintxos in the Basque country! Day 2: 13 July Super early morning transfer to Pamps so you can get your place trackside forthe morning's bull run. The run starts at 8am, but you need to claim your viewing space early. If interested in running, you need to be at the start one hour before. Again we have various shuttles running between San Sebastian and Pamplona so if you partied all night, or just came down to see the run this morning, you have the chance to spend the day on the beach and wander around the old town in San Sebastian. Our shuttles run late into the night so plenty of time to enjoy the festivities. Day 3: 14 July Another early morning shuttle to Pamplona for the final run of the bulls. You might want to participate, or this time watch from inside the bullring so you can view the shenanigans at the end of the race when the runners and bulls are in the ring together. Get ready for the 'Pobre de Mi' closing ceremony. At midnight the fiesta formally closes with a ceremony, taking place in front of the Town Hall. The crowd  will sing 'Pobre de Mí, Pobre de Mí, que se han acabado las fiestas, de San Fermín.' (Poor me, poor me, for the fiesta of San Fermín has come to a close). Party until the fiesta officially closes with the bars pulling down their shutters, marking the end of San Fermin! Day 4: 15 July Trip finishes after breakfast and check-out is at 9am. For those hopping back on the Busabout network, check out by 7.30am.
