The San Fermin Bullfights
The bullfight in San Fermin is unlike any spectacle you are likely to see elsewhere in the world. It is far from a traditional bullfight where the audience watches the drama with intense, almost silent attention. The bullfights during San Fermin are more lively and unique. San Fermín Taurine events are offered in packages or can be booked individually. Our guided event includes a taurine expert and gastronomy pack with traditional sandwiches and drinks on ice.
The bullfight on horse, or rejoneo,is on the 6th. The rejoneobullfight is where the bullfighters are on horseback fighting bulls weighing over 500 kilos. The classic bullfight is from the 7th to the 14th. This is the typical bullfight with the torero on foot fighting a bull that weighs from 500 kilos to as much as 700 kilos.
Time Schedule: 18:00 – 21:00
- Guided or self-guided

Gastronomy Tours – Our Moveable Feast
Morning of Fiesta and Vermutico Gastro Tour. These are gastronomic escapades into the colorful streets of the city to discover a Morning of Fiesta and into the world of exquisite pintxosand drinks. Join us on a movable feast for a combination of cultural and social San Fermín moments and elaborate Navarran food and drink, which draw us into the local life of the fiesta. Our Vermutico Gastro Tour is a Vermutico experience.

We visit the San Fermin statue and a private gastronomic society before wandering from one hotspot to the next, munching on elaborate bite-size wonders and sipping an artisanal vermouth as we go.
