On your mark…get set…run for your life! Whether you want to join the thousands of runners in the streets of Spain or watch from the safety of a balcony, this is truly an experience of a lifetime. Welcome to one of the world’s biggest street parties – you can drink and dance in the streets day and night! There is no comparison to the San Fermin Festival in Pamplona, Spain. For more than a week, the city of Pamplona takes on a playful mystique, consumed by a perpetual state of bliss. Whether you’ve seen it on television or read Hemingway’s novel “The Sun Also Rises”, chances are this internationally renowned tradition is on your bucket list.
Running of the Bulls
The 2019 festival takes place July 6 – 14. Begin your adventure with a walking tour of the course led by a Running of the Bulls veteran who is infinitely familiar with all 826 meters of the course. It’s up to you whether or not you want to run with the bulls; if you’re up for it, you will have two opportunities to participate. (Tip: Watch the first morning from the balcony so you know what to expect!) Whether you are running or watching, proudly wear your traditional San Fermin red scarf and bandana!
Please provide (3) date choices between July 6-14; every attempt will be made to secure your top choices.
