This package features 3 nights accommodation, with the option of spending 1 of the 3 nights in San Sebastian. Experience the first days of San Fermin, with access to low to middle level locations to watch the Running of the Bulls. Watch a bullfight from premium locations, or if that is not up to your preference, you can opt for our VIP fireworks cocktail dinner with views to the citadel. Join us on an intrepid Hemingwayesque adventure to the Basque Coast into the heart and soul of Basque culture. Sail the Basque Coast on a magnificent sailboat built in the 1920’s and enjoy exquisite regional cuisine in the city known for its ‘pintxos’; San Sebastian. Fall in love with this noble city while you taste exquisite pintxos and wine pairings and find out why Hemingway found this region so enchanting. Begin San Fermin right with our welcome gift – an NST white shirt, red bandana (pañuelo) and take-home souvenir.
The San Fermin Bullfights
The bullfight in San Fermin is unlike any spectacle you are likely to see elsewhere in the world and is far from a traditional bullfight where the audience watches the drama with intense, almost silent, attention. San Fermín Taurine events are offered in packages or can be booked individually. Our guided event includes a taurine expert + gastro pack with traditional sandwiches & drinks on ice.
Andanada tickets are in the middle high zone, tendido tickets are in the middle low zone, contrabarrera tickets are in the lower zone, and barrera are near the arena.
The bullfight on horse is on the 6th: The Rejoneo bullfight 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

The Hemingway Route to the Basque Coast
Travel with us to the northern corner of Spain where you can experience the heart and soul of Basque culture. Get ready for a day of folklore, green hills, and exquisite seafood. Our first Hemingwayesque experience takes us to Sunbilla, a picturesque village located in the heart of the Cantabrian Valleys, northeast of Navarre, where there are many caserios (Basque houses) decorated with their family crests. The village also has a majestic 16th century stone bridge over the Bidasoa River. A train ride brings you to the top of Mount Larrun from where you can enjoy the best vistas to the distant horizon with enjoying crisp, fresh, air, as well as traditional wines. Retrace the steps of Hemingway through the bay of Pasajes, one of the most charming, history filled, coastal towns northeast of San Sebastian, where you will visit the Víctor Hugo house-museum. Here you will enjoy unforgettable food that would satisfy the palate of Hemingway. We are transported back to the 1920’s on a sailboat to San Sebastian, savoring cava as you go. Get ready to join the experts on the best pintxo and wine route in San Sebastian – a city that Hemingway found enchanting. Fall in love with this noble city while you taste exquisite pintxo and wine pairings.
