"I used Northern Spain Travel to organise a private tour guide for Pamplona. Our guide Odei was awesome. He personalised the tour for our interests. We walked around Pamplona and was shown all the amazing places. Odei is born and raised in Pamplona so had a wealth of knowledge. He also took us to the best bars for pintxos. Worth every euro. If you are in the area you definitely need to get in touch with Northern Spain Travel before you do anything"

"This company was able to set me up with the best balcony/viewing area of anyone else I had spoken soon. The price was very reasonable considering the limited options. Once I reached the designated area, our hosts could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. Heart of Pamplona ultimately provided one of the most memorable San Fermín experiences and photo opportunities that exist during fiesta"

"I came here with some friends from the US, Stephanie was such a delightful host and made sure we were always comfortable. She arranged a tour for us the second day we were there so we knew what was going on in the city during San Fermin, this city is such a gem and she is a rose amongst thorns so to speak I cannot recommend this place anymore, if you have the opportunity to stay here please know you are in great hands also we was greeted immediatly by the downstairs neighbors for a drink and treated as if we had been friends for years"

"I can not even begin to express how grateful I am for Steph and her sincere generosity! I reached out to her for a question, and she was extremely kind, helpful, friendly, and helped solve the problem! Though I have not actually met her in person, just via email, she went above and beyond to help me out. Her positive vibes were felt across the ocean, and restored my belief in the basic human believe in kindness and empathy. I would 100%, hands-down recommend Steph as a host. I owe her, big time! :-) Much love from New Orleans, Louisiana. Cheers to a wonderful 2017, Steph!!"

Our Four Essentials

The common thread in everything we design is based on our four essentials of history, culture, gastronomy and landscapes. We seek authentic immersive experiences that will generate both curiosity and enthusiasm. With Northern Spain Travel you can live experiences like Co-pilot an ultra-light plane over Romanesque Navarra; savour exquisite bite-size morsels of heavenly cuisine while bar-hopping along the cobblestoned streets of the old quarter; be a pilgrim for a day walking the St. James Way or cycle through hectares of picturesque vineyards to finish the day’s ride sipping on regional pride, a Vino de Pago wine. Let this millenary European region and it’s people surprise, engage and inspire you!

Spring - Summer - Winter - Fall

July offers San Fermin and the running of the bulls, with local fiestas continuing all the way through until September. There are several city festivals like Flamenco on Fire which run through August; the grape harvest for wine lovers is in October and November; December is full of colour and song with its Christmas season folklore in Lesaka; the lively carnivals of Iturren and Lanz are in January. Did we mention the Pamplona Rosé wine festival in May? Cycling in this region is all year round and is outstanding. Join us on a wine tour in neighbouring Rioja, learn about the Basque folklore on a walking tour through the Basque Lands and our Gastro Tour we call The Moveable Feast, inspired by Hemingway. Come and discover the North of Spain.
