Share in the thrill of one of the best fiestas in the world: San Fermín
“A spectacle capable of making one get out of bed at 5:30 in the morning for various days on end.” That’s what Ernest Hemingway said about the bull running at San Fermin. And now, you can write about it too.
There’s a special day marked on all calendars in Pamplona: July 6th. Before 12 noon, no one will be missing at the incredible City Hall Square of Pamplona. They are all anxious, dressed in typical white and red, with handkerchiefs held aloft, for the year’s special signal: the “chupinazo” rocket that marks the start of the insuperable San Fermin festivities. This is when all joy breaks loose, giving way to nine days of non-stop celebrations in all the city streets. And this year, you can be here, too.
A private local guide will pick you up at your hotel and lead you round this unique fiesta. You’ll enjoy these most famous celebrations in the world from a privileged location. You can choose your own VIP balcony from which to see the running of the bulls one unforgettable morning at 8am, with all kinds of comforts available.
When the bull running has finished, you’ll start enjoying all the other customs in Pamplona, with a magnificent luxury breakfast at the new Casino. This is a private club where you can take the pulse of the festive atmosphere and enjoy your time, and even take part in the famous traditional dance called the Alpargata.
After your breakfast, you’re off to see the rest of the city, accompanied of course by your faithful guide, who will tell you all about the secrets and history of this unique celebration the world over.
Be forewarned: it is impossible not to join in with the fiesta. You’ll experience the contagious party atmosphere, and you’ll only be able to do one thing: go along with it and enjoy.
