Ideal for families and friends who are looking for much more than just San Fermin, this package features 3 nights and 4 days of fabulous San Fermin experiences, plus a chance to experience the Basque Country. Experience highlights such as participating in a village festival, and mingle with the endearing people of the north. Swim in the Atlantic ocean, enjoy a spa session and then dine on their exquisite cuisine in the seaside town of San Sebastian. We also offer you the option of spending 1 of the 3 nights in San Sebastian.
We offer you three fabulous San Fermin experiences. The San Fermin events we include give you access to our best locations to watch the running of the bulls, followed by a gastronomy morning tour taking us into all sorts of private venues and San Fermin hotspots. In the afternoon we go to the bullring with premium seat locations to watch the bullfight. Or, if that is not your preference, then you can opt for our VIP fireworks cocktail dinner party.
The next day, a new adventure for our San Fermin Premium guests: we leave Pamplona for the day, but we will be back for the evening fireworks. Please see our Adventure to the Basque Lands for a full description of that day. 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. 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. Vermutico means much more than the name Vermouth implies – it is a series of wonderful morning or mid-morning experiences taking us right up to lunchtime. 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. Get a feel for the old quarter with stops along the way at the greatest of San Fermín events.
