Book Packages for the Original Running of the Bulls Online!

We are present in Pamplona throughout the entire festival, so choose the dates that best work for you and we’ll do the rest!

Booking guidance from the Bucket List Events Staff:

We have had a program in Pamplona since 2007 and have seen all types of clients come through. Our familiarity with the festival and client expectations gives us the experience we need to plan your perfect stop in Pamplona.

There are different phases during the festival, and we would love to find which one fits you best.

Opening dates (July 6,7)

Known as the Chupinazo, the opening dates will always be a massive party with loud music everywhere and extremely congested streets. Some guests are seeking this experience, others would prefer to experience the festival with a little more legroom. This portion of the festival also carries a higher price tag than the dates that follow, and is popular with US travelers looking to take advantage of the 4th of July holiday. If you are looking for the biggest party and don’t mind a hot, sweaty crowd around you (and spending a good bit more), our Opening Ceremonies Package is for you. Please note that our package begins on July 5th.

Mid-Festival Dates (July 8,9,10,11) 

Typically, the July 8-11 dates bring an influx of European travelers, including the French looking to celebrate Bastille Day. The 2023 version of these dates could be pretty boisterous since these are the only weekend dates of the year, so the city could be more full than usual. These dates traditionally have been some of the best dates to participate in the run as the number of participants are noticeably less than July 7th and 8th. The hotels have lower rates, and you get more bang for your buck during these dates.

Closing Dates (July 12,13,14)

Full of unique traditions not seen in the earlier festival dates, the closing dates are the least crowded time of the festival. This is perfect for those looking to experience the San Fermin, but prefer to avoid the massive crowds that come with the opening days. You can expect to enjoy all of the San Fermin traditions, including the intimate “Pobre de mi.” Since this is also the best dates for hotel rates, the closing is very popular with international travelers.

We could not have been more impressed with Bucket List Events during the Running of the Bulls this past summer. Toby and his staff were exceptional. They were knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, and very inclusive. It was an unforgettable experience, with great memories and great people to share it with. I will look forward to checking more items off my Bucket List with this company!!
