Tour de France • VIP access

Running of the Bulls Extension

July 6th – July 8th, 2023 • non-cycling

The Running of the Bulls is one of the most iconic travel experiences in the world. In addition to the actual running through the streets, this is an event that includes neighborhood festivals and concerts. We will include a couple of these local events in order to make this an authentic experience for our guests. Examples of these included events are the Founders dinner and fireworks, a Bull Running tour and dinner at a Michelin star restaurant with the traditional Saint Fermin menu. Our lead guide, Thomas, lives in Spain and has curated an amazing trip!

Since we will be in Spain for the beginning of the 2023 Tour de France, we think it is a great idea to see this spectacle while we are in the area. If you are doing the Grand Depart trip with us, it will be a seamless transition back to Spain to begin the extension. If you are traveling with us later in the Tour, you can start with the extension, then do your own thing for a few days and meet back up with us for one of the Alps trips in Geneva.

Day 01

Arrival in Spain, Founder's dinner and fireworks

Date Thursday, July 6 Hotel Location Pamplona, Spain

Welcome to Spain! We will be meeting in the lobby of our hotel in the late afternoon or for those joining from the Grand Depart trip you will transfer with us to Pamplona. On the way, we will take a break in the village of Saint Jean Pied de Port. This is one of the traditional starting points for the Camino de Santiago. Our guide, Thomas, will do a brief introduction to the “Camino”. Our hotel in Pamplona is at a beautiful golf resort on the edge of town that provides a free shuttle into the city center for all the festivities.

Tonight we’ll enjoy a special treat: The Founder’s Dinner and fireworks to open the Running of the Bulls celebration. Authentic Spanish food in an amazing setting with locals, followed by fireworks in the town center will be a very memorable experience!

Day 02

Running of the Bulls and Tour Pamplona

Date Friday, July 7 Hotel Location Pamplona, Spain

After an early breakfast we will head into the center of the town. We have a space reserved on a balcony to watch the Running of the Bulls. You will love the energy of the town as the residents prepare to welcome the world. All of our guests will receive a bandana, sash and custom-designed t-shirt to wear today.

After the bulls pass, we will explore Pamplona and find a place for lunch. In the afternoon, we will do a Bull Running Tour with a local expert…another unique experience!

Dinner tonight is another unique treat: Our group dinner will be at Pamplona’s best restaurant, a Michelin starred establishment, with the pre-set Saint Fermin menu. What a great way to end our trip! There may be local, impromptu concerts, so listen for music and dancing from the locals.
