Hemingway’s Fiesta

 
 

If you want to watch the running of the bulls then the only real option is to watch from a balcony. The barriers are always packed with people hours before the bullrun and by 6 am there are no spaces left. Even then it is the second barrier back from the street with the gap filled with police and medics. We have a nuber of balcony spaces both for the bullrun and for the opening ceremony just drop us an email for more details. The spaces for the first couple of mornings and the weekend mornings are more expensive and sell out very quickly. And remember to get a good view up and down the course you need a bit of height so it is best to book on the 3rd,4th and 5th floors. However all our balconies have a grat view of the course. We limit the number of people on each balcony to ensure everybody has a great view.

It is very difficult to book bullfight tickets in Pamplona as 90% are season tickets and the remaining 10% are sold the night before a fight and the queues go on for hours with most of the tickets bought up by the ticket mafia. We are in the fortunate position of having a number of season tickets ourselves plus we have local contacts to source other tickets. Basically we have tickets in the sun section which is the party section with all the pena bands and it is great fun with the bullfights being a wild extravaganza with some of the beste action being in the spectators section rather than the bullring. Plus we have a small number of shade seats, these are more expensive and come in pairs. Thus we suggest if there are more than two of you in a group you go for tickets in the sun section where you can all sit together. Also unlike Madrid the bullring in Pamplona generally has a more temperate climate as Pamplona itself is quite high up. We have tickets for all dates, starting with the up and coming bullfighters on the 5th July, the bullfighting on horseback on the 6th July and all the other bullfights up until the final night on the 14th July. Please email us with your numbers and preferred dates and we can give you a quote. Our  availability runs out quite quickly so it is best to get in touch asap.
