Brace yourself for one of the biggest street parties you'll probably ever see as this is truly a fiesta like no other! The perfect balance of partying at the most notorious fiesta in Spain, then mingling with your new found friends on the relaxed beaches of the Basque country

Day 1: 5th July 2016
Check into your hostel anytime from 2pm. Tonight your Guide will take you on an orientation walk of San Sebastian and arrange a meet and greet at local bar. You'll be given a general overview of the trip and have your travelling taste-buds tantalised with what's to come. Have a sangria on us and try the local tapas, known as pintxos in the Basque country

Day 2: 6th July 2016
First early morning shuttle from San Seb to Pamplona for the opening ceremony. This commences at noon in the square outside the Town Hall. Enjoy the festivities – cava, sangria and egg throwing!
We'll have regular shuttles running from the festival to San Sebastian so you choose when to head back (last shuttle will be at midnight). Tonight will be an all-night party in Pamplona so stick around until the morning if you have the stamina...welcome to the madness that is San Fermin

Day 3: 7th July 2016
Super early morning transfer to Pamps so you can get your place trackside for the first run (encierro). The run starts at 8am, but you need to claim your viewing space early. If interested in running, you need to be at the start one hour before the encierro
Again we have various shuttles running between San Sebastian and Pamplona so if you partied all night, or just came down to see the run this morning, you have the chance to spend the day on the beach and wander around the old town in San Sebastian. Our shuttles run late into the night so plenty of time to enjoy the festivities

Day 4: 8th July 2016
Last early morning shuttle to Pamplona to see the second bull run of San Fermin. Perhaps this time you might want to participate, or watch from inside the bullring so you can view the shenanigans at the end of the race when the runners and bulls are in the ring together. After the run we head back to San Sebastian to chill on the beach, before heading to a great local bar for the San Fermin party. Deals on Sangria, beer and Kalimotxo are on offer to get the party started
