Running with the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain

Apply Now


Day 1 – Arrival

Arrive in Pamplona at any time, and meet the rest of the group.  

Enjoy an orientation walk around the old town of Pamplona, and learn about its fascinating history and the customs surrounding the San Fermin festival.

Get a chance to walk through and get familiar with the bull run course, before the crowds – and bulls – arrive.

Savour some authentic Spanish wine and pintxos (the Basque version of tapas).

Day 2 - The opening ceremonies (Chupinazo)

Watch the lighting of the chupinazo rocket, which marks the official start of the San Fermin celebrations.

Join the locals in uncorking bottles of cava and sangria and spraying it all around. You will be stained red and purple by the end of it!

This is the wildest party on Earth, literally, so be prepared.

Day 3 - Running of the Bulls

Learn about some tips and tricks to survive and thrive in the Running of the Bulls, from a course given by Chase himself, who is an expert and has run it multiple times.

Participate in the inaugural Running of the Bulls!

Day 4 – Balcony

Watch the Running of the Bulls from a private balcony, and snap some truly captivating photos.  

Run with the bulls again, if you desire and if you dare. Or go for the first time if you didn’t build up the nerve on the first day.

Optional: Watch a recortadores, an acrobatic bullfight where the bull is not even touched, just avoided acrobatically. It is a non-violent alternative to a bullfight, yet certainly no less entertaining. 

Day 5 – Relax and explore

Walk around the town of Pamplona to snap the photos that perfectly capture the essence of this epic festival barely contained in this historic town.

Watch the fireworks display in the Old Citadel, held nightly during San Fermin. 

Day 6 – San Sebastian

Take a short journey to San Sebastian (1 hour away from Pamplona) for a fun and relaxing day trip.

Explore some of the city’s oldest and most authentic neighborhoods, from the seat of a bike, while a local tour guide tells you about the history and culture of the region.

Visit traditional and modern pintxo bars, on a guided gastronomic tour in a city that frequently tops lists of the world’s best places to eat.

Swim and relax on La Concha beach, often said to be the most beautiful city beach in Europe.

Head back to Pamplona for the night.

Day 7 – Final day of the adventure

Run with the bulls one more time. Seize the opportunity for this unique and once-in-a-lifetime event!

Immortalize your courage by having photos and videos taken of you by our private photographer, as you run with the bulls, if you choose.

Enjoy a big delicious Spanish dinner to finish our trip and look back on the wild adventure we had together.

Day 8 – Departure

Say goodbye to your Spanish lovers and new friends.

Depart from Pamplona at any time.
