DESCRIPTION OF INCLUDED EVENTS
Running of the Bulls Balcony Event
Dangerous below, safe above, without missing any of the action. You are close enough to hear the
clattering of the bulls’ hooves as they charge up the cobblestone streets of the old town. You are literally
meters away. Join us in one of our spectacular locations to share the anticipation of the rocket blast,
sense the tension building, feel the ground tremble…experience the run with enthusiasm and let this
bucket-list-wish come true. These events always include breakfast and a guided chaperone from our
meeting point to your balcony.
Time Schedule: 06:30 - 08:30
Chaperon to your balcony
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
Guided or Self-guided
The Fireworks Cocktail Dinner Party
With panoramic views of the citadel below and dancing lights in the sky above, we offer a repast of
superb wines and a vast assortment of the best of our Navarran tapas and pintxos, followed by desserts
and cocktails. All this in a superb setting from where to watch the spectacular international fireworks
competition. Enjoy the explosive colours above you as you sit on the roof terrace - a memorable evening
under the stars.
