This premium package includes everything you need to make the most of the opening days of the Running of the Bulls. Stay at Hotel Blanca de Navarra, a charming hotel only a few minutes away from Pamplona’s city center. Its strategic location is great for enjoying the fiesta, but also getting some rest.

From the minute you book with us to the minute you arrive in Pamplona, we will be with you every step of the way to help make sure you have a flawless Fiesta. Our team of 35 guides surrounds you with support at every key moment but know when to back off and let you enjoy the freedom to explore Pamplona.

We escort you to your balcony to view the morning bull run (when it is easy to get lost in the chaos). We are always an SMS text away when you have questions or need help.

July 5th

  • Arrive in Pamplona at your leisure and check-in. Our concierge will greet you in your hotel lobby.
  • Join our Founder for Welcome Tapas & Wine, catered by one of the best chefs in Pamplona 
  • Stroll through the city during the last calm moments before Fiesta

July 6th

  • Breakfast in your hotel
  • At 9:45am we escort you to your Opening Ceremonies Balcony (just a 25 min walk away) where you’ll be on Plaza Castillo with a view of the festivities. Enjoy Navarran food and wine, while you watch from the safety of a balcony as three hours of mosh-pit chaos unfolds below. Around 1pm it is safe to get back on the streets and dive into fiesta yourself.
  • Mid-afternoon, you’re invited to join a walking tour of the bull run route with an expert runner, making you a better runner, and a better spectator – since you’ll learn what to expect.
  • Before 6:00pm take the short 25-minute walk from the hotel to the Plaza de Toros to take your seat for the evening bullfights in our private season ticket seats in the lower deck Tendido section.
  • Around 8:30pm as you leave the bullfights, you can join the fiesta in the streets, or take advantage of our Gourmet Dining Package and have a guaranteed restaurant reservation.

July 7th

  • Get ready to join the centuries-old tradition of watching the morning bull run from a balcony along the route (the only way to get a view, actually). At 6:00am, we escort you to the door of your balcony, where our guide waits with you until the owner opens the door at 7:00am. You have to be off the street by 7am because only runners are allowed on the street from 7 to 8am. The bulls run at 8:00am and our host invites us to watch instant replays on the TV. We normally return to the street around 8:15am
  • Breakfast in your hotel after the bull run
  • Explore the sights and sounds of Fiesta at your leisure.
    Take advantage of our optional Gourmet Dining Package upgrade to join our Tapas & Wine Tasting, hosted by a local food and wine expert, where you’ll sample award-winning tapas dishes paired with an excellent selection of regional wines.
  • Add on our optional Torero Training & Bull Ranch Tour to get out into the countryside and learn how to manage a cape and sidestep a young bull. (Or sit on the sidelines and enjoy tapas & wine as you watch your friends give it a go.)
  • At 8:00pm we’ll meet you at the Baluarte Performing Arts Center to join a fantastic evening, hosted by our Founder, Mark Hellmann Regouby. We enjoy a fantastic meal together including flamenco dancing and music. Then we get an invitation to join the patrons of the arts center for a private rooftop party for a front-row view of Pamplona’s famous nightly fireworks competition. Fireworks are over by 11:30pm so you can stay and dance the night away with the locals, or make your way out and rejoin the party on the street.

July 8th

  • Breakfast in your hotel
  • This is your departure day. Please let us know if we can help with transfers to the airport or train station.
