Ride with us from San Sebastian to San Vino 2017
If you’ve surfed yourself out in San Sebastian, why not take a 2-day break and come to one of the most awesome (and crazy) cultural experiences of your life and travel from San Sebastian to San Vino 2017? We have buses to take you to the tiny town of Haro in the hills of La Rioja province. Here you will find a little cobblestoned, cozy village that for 2 days a year goes absolutely fucking nuts.
Our friendly folk will meet you outside the Kursaal Opera House near Zurriola surf beach on the 27th June where we will depart by 4pm. After introductions to your fellow Stokies and high fives all round, we will jump on the bus and embark on our San Sebastian to San Vino 2017 adventure. The bus is spacious, so there’s plenty of room to relax and unwind. Several shots and a little shut eye later, we will arrive in Haro. Once we arrive there is nothing left for you to worry about, apart from having the time of your life. Our bunch of helpful guides will be there to answer any questions you may have, and to assist you where necessary before you’re let loose into the madness that is San Vino 2017! Easy…let the three days of fun commence. After a few beautiful and blurry wine-filled days later, the bus will depart at noon on the 30th June from the Haro campsite. The bus is due to arrive in San Sebastian around 3pm. (See ‘How To Get There’ for more details.)
What is San Vino?
There’re live performers doing everything from Spanish classics to Justin Bieber’s latest profound piece of music. We’ll drink and dance and frolic and attempt to salsa and have the night of our lives with the locals. We’ll maybe sleep for an hour and then we’ll get our festival whites, grab our weapons (boxes of red wine) on and head on public buses up the hill at 7am. They mayor will lead the whole town up the cliffs of Bilibio to a mass in honour of San Pedro.
You’ll look out over the beautiful surrounding countryside and sigh at the tranquility…. and then someone will dump a bucket of red wine on your head. All hell will break loose and you will eventually emerge exhausted, exhilarated… and purplish-pink. After washing off in the creek, we’ll head back to the square for more celebrating and chasing around heifers – or men dressed up as heifers. Oh, the joys of a Spanish festival. They’ve got it right.
Costs: €250 | US$ 265 | £213 | AU$ 217
