Running of the Bulls 2018

Pamplona, Spain | 4th - 15th July

Running Of The Bulls 2018

Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls festival, San Fermin to the locals, is so much more than the dangerously exciting bull run. It’s a city-wide sangria-soaked street party, featuring live music, DJs, fireworks, food and plenty of Spanish good times. Stoke’s Running of the Bulls trip includes massive campsite parties with live performances by ART VS SCIENCE, Hiaground, Kiwi Pips, Honey Hayze, Mesmeriser & Paul The Kid, your stay in pre-erected twin share tents with mattress and sleeping bag, hot and hearty breakfast each morning, delicious dinner each evening, huge open-minded international crowd, Stoke chill out campsite, awesome guides to make your running with the bulls extra special and one hell of an unforgettable experience! Plus, this year we’re also hosting the Stoked in the Park music and food festival.

LOVE TO PARTY? JOIN US FOR THE RUNNING OF THE BULLS 2018

The bull run itself is a confusing item on many people’s bucket list. The bulls are big, their horns are sharp and the streets are narrow. In a panic to avoid the bulls, your fellow runners will elbow you and run over the top of you. Chances are you’ll emerge from the bull run with a bruise or scratch, but there’s always the chance that something can really go wrong… and it’s so exhilarating! So much fun! A once in a lifetime experience, and something that we should try at least once.

But the bull run isn’t for everybody. It’s just five controversial minutes of each festival day. For the other 23 hours and 55 minutes, when the bulls aren’t running the city is raging, and the Pamplona party is for absolutely everybody. Street parties, clubs, bars and all kinds of restaurants seem to never stop. There are live bands and DJs in every city square, park and plaza. At night the fireworks go off, and you’ll be celebrating with absolute legends from Pamplona, across Spain and around the world. It really is one of the greatest parties there is. And Stoked in the Park just adds to that.

For a history of San Fermin festival and the Running of the Bulls, go here.

STOKED IN THE PARK

Stoked in the Park is Stoke Travel’s festival within Pamplona’s Running of the Bulls festival. Stoked in the Park is all about the party, live music and new connections, pool parties and local and international food and wine. Stoked in the Park is set on a big, beautiful, grassy and shaded campsite outside of Pamplona, where we’ve created a magical playground for you to day party while getting ready for the madness in town, to keep the fiesta going when you return from the bull run, or for you to spend the whole day and night taking advantage of the awesome installations we’ve created, the musicians and performers we’ve invited along, and the gorgeous crowd we attract. Acts so far confirmed include Kiwi Pips, Honey Hayze, Mesmeriser & The Violet Monks.

CAMP WITH STOKE TRAVEL AT PAMPLONA BULL RUN 2018

And we haven’t even mentioned Stoke Travel’s Bulls Campsite yet, many travellers’ favourite part of the festival. Our grassy, riverside, shaded campsite features swimming pools and plenty of space to chill out. You’ll meet hundreds of new open-minded international friends, and we’ll have the biggest party outside of Sanfermines. Live bands, DJs, sporting competitions and food and wine tasting are all onsite. We’ll also have your tent already erected within our campsite, your mattress rolled out and your sleeping bag at the ready. Our chef will be serving hot and tasty breakfasts each morning and hearty dinners each evening, so you’ll be set to dance your socks off through the night, all before running with bulls in the morning. And, as always, we have unlimited beer and sangria on offer for only €10 per day onsite.

Meet us there, or ride with us from Barcelona or Madrid. Combine your Running of the Bulls stay with our San Sebastian Surf Camp, BBK Live, or both.

    Detailed Itinerary: 

    4th – 5th July

    Stoke campsite opens for business! The rest of the day you have free time for optional activities. Stoke Suggestion: Chill by the pool, enjoy a cold beer or ten or check out central Pamplona. Dinner is served nightly and there will be a massive campsite party as always.

    6th July

    From 9am, there will be guides to take to you to Pamplona for the opening ceremony.
    At 12pm, the opening ceremony, or ‘El Chupinazo’, takes place in the main square. A rocket is fired to signal the start of the festival. Return that evening for included dinner or enjoy the festivities in town. There’ll be a huge fireworks display tonight and every other night of San Fermines.

    7th – 8th July

    5am – An early morning for all the bull runners, who head into town to take part in the first run, or ‘encierro’. You must be in the run by 7am to secure a spot in the madness. This is always the biggest (and most dangerous) run.
    8am – 12pm – Hot breakfast at camp
    10am: Doors and bar open for Stoked in the Park. There’ll be live music, yoga, 3 different bars, beer pong tournaments and so much more. With Art Vs Science headlining, this is a weekend that can’t be missed!
    8pm – 10pm Dinner at campsite
    11pm – See more fireworks or head into town for endless fiestas.

    9th – 14th July

    8am – 12pm Hot breakfast
    9am – 10pm -Free time to check out Pamplona jump on our our walking tours or hang out in our town bar downing unlimited beer and sangria, making new friends, playing the best drinking games and dancing your socks off. . Join the locals celebrating in town, try some Spanish food and catch some brass bands parading around town. Have a siesta in the shade somewhere because you will probably be dancing and drinking all night later on.
    8 – 10pm Dinner at campsite

    At 00:00 on 14th July the festival ends. The closing ceremony is called Pobre de Mí and is signalled by a rocket being fired at the strike of midnight; this is when your pañuelo is removed and San Fermines winds down for another year. And when we say winds down, we mean goes out with a bang as the whole city parties for one more night.

    Stoke Suggestions for Optional activities (not included):

    • Wine tasting
    • Fail at chatting up locals
    • Fail at trying out the local lingo
    • Suntan and chill at camp
    • Walking tour of Pamplona
    • Pamplona Running of the Bulls
  • Pamplona Campsite:

    We are set up at the El Molino campsite, in the rolling hills of Navarra, just outside of the city. This is beautiful country and will give you a taster of real Spain, outside of the hyper-touristed centre of town in Pamplona. Being located out here gives us plenty of space to put on sporting events and live musical acts. Our space has a river running through it, plenty of trees for shade, large grassy chill-out areas, swimming pools for pool parties, or just for taking a dip, multiple bars and also a space for local produce vendors.

    Our legendary riverside campsite is only a short hop from Pamplona centre by private coach. With tickets bookable on site for one way & return trips direct to Pamplona centre. For your arrival day book with us 48 hours in advance and we will have a seat for you on the Pamplona Express for only €5!!

    Our Pamplona Express leaves the city centre to head to the Stoke Travel Camp at the following times.

    Camping El Molino

    Carretera mendigorria
    larraga s/n,
    31150 Mendigorría,
    Navarra, Spain

    Pamplona, Spain:

    San Fermines is held in the centre of town. This is where you’ll find street parties, bull runs and all the fireworks! The Stoke Travel campsite is about 25 minutes from the centre of Pamplona and with daily shuttles it is a breeze getting in and out.

     How to get there.

    Jump on one buses running from Madrid, San Sebastian or Barcelona or make your own way to Pamplona. Check GoEuro for the best deals on flights, buses and trains. Once in Pamplona head to the main bus station where we run shuttles direct to the campsite. Email info@stoketravel.com for more information. Alternatively jump in a taxi for around €40 from the centre of town to the campsite, it will take around 25 mins.

     

  • Hola! Chuck your thoughts and questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll put up a helpful answer here…

    Are the shuttles to and from the Bulls included in the price?
    The camp is about a 30 minutes drive from town, so the campsite is providing shuttles into the bull run. This is not included in the price, but we will send guides in with you to make sure get the best spot in the run or the stadium. The buses will be running frequently all day.

    Do you provide transport to Zarautz for the beach camp?
    Yes, we are doing buses to the beach camp if you would like to stay there for a few days. The cost is €15 one way for the transfer. You can add this to your booking or book it at the Guru tent.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Brekkie varies according to our chefs’ whims. It usually involves egg and bacon in some form. Pancakes, french toast, poached, fried, scrambled… Yum!

    2 of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
    We cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal-products and stuff you to the brim with fruits and veggies and starches…..whatever we do, we’ll make a plan for you.

    Do we have the option of flying into Barcelona and taking one of your buses to the campsite?
    Yes, you absolutely do. You can fly into Barcelona in time for the Weekend trip. You can also do the 24hr Bus trip to Bulls from Barcelona or just go one way on this bus and stay a few days and then do one way back. Have it your way. Email info@stoketravel.com any queries

    It says on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
    Yes, the twin tents are two-person tents. We have two-person tents and 7 person teepees. If you are a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. You get allocated your tent on arrival so you can make tent requests then. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share… or if you want leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… just saying…

    And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite is awesome seriously! It is right near Pamplona but still in nature, there is a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, wifi, a swimming pool and our own Stoke chill zone.

    What is the name of the camp site we are staying at?
    The campsite is called Camping El Molino. The address: Carretera mendigorria larraga s/n, 31150 Mendigorría, Navarra, Spain

  • Reviews & ratings

    • Taylor says:

      Easy booking process, we received information before arrival. The shuttles were sparse and taxis sometimes hard to get but everything worked out! One thing is that it got pretty cold at night. The atmosphere was amazing! I really loved the people. It was mental!

    • Jack says:

      The booking process was easy, better directions to the site would have been helpful, like where the bus station was located. Also that the bar at the camp site was cash only. But the buses were great! Great energy, fun people, staff was awesome. What I really loved about my stay was the people, the food, good vibes, and the undy run was a blast. You can improve it by having more dance parties. It was a killer!!

    • Anna says:

      I had a lot of fun, some things can improve, for example I wish I had known the Stoke Bar closed so early at night.Easy to meet people! The Staff was fun & social! In overall I had a great time, I’d do it again!

    • Katelyn says:

      There was a miscommunication with the dates on the website and the confirmation email, but after reaching out it was quickly resolved! Most fun I’ve had in my entire life, I loved the people, the atmosphere and the experience as a whole.

    • Pat says:

      The booking process was super easy & plenty of relevant information. Maybe better directions for catching the bus. We ended up using taxi though. The guy who checked me in kept losing his pen so maybe a couple extra pens for him. All jokes aside I thought it was an efficient process. Plus the girls where super cute so I wouldn’t have noticed delays. Everyone was outgoing & an overall great time. What I really love about my stay is all the people I met from around the globe. What you can improve are The buses & more stoke gear in stock for popular sizes. My stay in a few words: No bullshit, every sangria stain was worth it!

    • Lauden says:

      The food seriously saved my life more then once. Definitely would go Stoke again. Maybe next time just pump up the beds a little bit more;)

    • Rick says:

      Booking it was easy, online payment is good. The atmosphere was epic! I really loved the the crew and people met. Maybe you can get us some more food. Wasn’t enough. It was good though! The trip was SOLID.

    • Paul says:

      Awesome. Never forget it, something to tell the grandkids ?? Although there was To much snoring on the campsite, the rest of the trip existed of great people and fantastic tour!
