If you are looking to experience one of the World’s Top Festivals (San Fermin), but also want to explore two of Spain’s most popular cities, we recommend booking our Running of the Bulls Madrid & Barcelona. Keep in mind that the dates for this package must be around July 6th to 14th as this is when the San Fermin festival takes place.
Every year millions of people flock to Pamplona to experience days filled with drinking Sangria, eating delicious tapas, enjoying the local festivities and for the brave ones – running for their lives in front of angry bulls! To pick your exact dates, check out the Best Dates for Running of the Bulls.
To get to Pamplona, Spain, most travelers have to go through either Madrid or Barcelona (Spain’s largest travel hubs) so this itinerary is extremely convenient. It’s also more cost effective as there are more flights in and out of these cities and you can take a train to/from Pamplona.
If you have never been to Spain, these cities are also must-sees. Madrid is a bustling European capital with incredible nightlife, amazing restaurants and a vast array of cultural sites and events throughout the year. Barcelona is one of the world’s most visited cities with incredible sites (Sagrada Familia, Park Guell), amazing architecture, and a Mediterranean spirit!
Our Running of the Bulls Madrid & Barcelona package is built where your flight lands in Madrid and departs out of Barcelona (or vice-versa) and you take trains to/from Pamplona. The recommended days are 2 to 3 in Madrid, 3 to 4 in Pamplona and 2 to 3 in Barcelona.
