Bulls, Barrels & Vino Roadtrip: Spain

Start in Barcelona and end in Pamplona! With the san fermin (pamplona) tour Bulls, Barrels & Vino Festival Roadtrip, you have a 13 day tour package taking you through Barcelona, Spain and 3 other destinations in Spain. Bulls, Barrels & Vino Festival Roadtrip includes accommodation as well as an expert guide, meals, transport and more. This road trip takes you through the north of Spain on an adrenaline infused mad dash, that begins in San Vino Wine Fight, at the biggest wine fight possible. After this we head to San Sebastian surf camp, for some days spent either lazing under the sun, or shredding in the surf. And finally to Pamplona and witness and perhaps participate in the world’s most (in)famous Spanish fiesta, San Fermines, or the running of the bulls. And go out with a bang at the one and only Stoked in the Park.

Tour Itinerary


Meet us centrally in the AM , check in and hop aboard, we’re going to wine country baby! We’ll spend the day max-chillin’ in the Spanish sunshine, working on our tans and working out our livers. In the night we’ll go into the town square where live bands and DJs play all night, and the locals party with them. This is going to be a belter. Can you last the distance? Tomorrow is a very big day, after all.
After an early hot breakfast, we head up to the vineyard on the hill where the wine fight takes place. This party is very straightforward, we throw wine on each other and the locals all morning, until we’re stained purple and we’re a little drunk again (it seems to get in through the skin). After the wine fight the locals BBQ local meats and snails (snails!) and eat cheese and drink more wine, before heading into town, where the locals throw themselves in front of young bulls just for fun. You’ll probably be asleep by now (that’s a challenge).
Through your purple-stained eyelids awake to a hot breakfast before jumping on the bus to our San Sebastian Surf Camp, on the other side of the mountains and by the sea, where the view will make your eyes weep and the beer is always cold (we have wine, too, if you still want wine, you purple little legends). Afternoon surf? 100%. And our professional and professionally fun surf guides will make sure you get the lessons you need for your level, as well as guide you into the best waves. Boards and lessons are included in the price, and once you’ve filled your face with salt water and your hair with sand we’ll retreat back to our Surf Casa for a kickass dance party.
Rise with the sun coming over the Basque Pyrenees and check the surf. The morning wind still hasn’t come up, and the air is warm. Breakfast is consumed with talk of the day’s conditions and your guides are working out the best spot for you. Hit the beach with your lunch packed and settle in for a day of surfing, sunning and beach gaming, a day where your eyes will be assaulted by the naked and semi-naked sun worshippers in a positive and negative way. That night you can see the locals with clothes on when we head down into town to drink the local drinks and dance the local dances.
Surf’s up, again… So let’s hit the sand and shred. Or perhaps you want to go into San Sebastian and take selfies from all the vantage points and eat all the delicious tapas. Back at the house, after today’s session(s), we’ll retreat to the hillside where we can watch the sun dip her fiery toes into the Bay of Biscay. Millions of beers and sangrias optional and included (if you want to part with the €10 a day surcharge aka the best deal in the universe).
We’ll be toasting our red, white and freedom flavoured friend’s from across the Atlantic in central San Sebastian. Join an international crowd of bassline junkies, lunatic Australian travellers, European surfers and Basque party animals. We’ll be celebrating ‘Merica all night long, with more bars per square metre than anywhere else in the world, San Sebastian is the spot.
Enjoy your final morning in the surf house, devouring a delicious breakfast before jumping on our bus to Pamplona for your stay at Stoke’s Running of the Bulls campsite. Arrive at camp, and head straight to the pool, top up your tan or take some time to relax floating down the river nearby.
You’ll head to the Chupinazo for it’s official midday start. A rocket is launched over Pamplona's main square, where you’ll be partying with thousands of locals and tourists alike, singing, dancing & drinking in the street. There’s a giant red wine fight, that outbreaks throughout the city, with the fiesta continuing well into the early hours of the morning and well the entirety of the San Fermin festival. You may choose to stay in town, getting friendly with some locals, or head back to camp for dinner and an early night ready for tomorrow’s first bull run
Up early and into town for the bull run. Whether you’re taking part or not, whether you’re morally opposed to it or not, you’ve got to check it out while you’re here. Our campsite buses will take you into town, and our guides will bring you to the bull run, and give you some well needed tips and tricks. You can watch from anywhere along the Encierro (bull run) or if you just want to see juvenile bulls take down drunks (nobody gets hurt except for the drunks and their ego) they’ll point you in the direction of the Plaza de Toros. When the last of the all-nighters have packed up in Pamplona and the excitement from the bull run is winding down or bulls campsite is winding up! With our own miniature 2-day "festival within a festival," 'Stoked in the Park'. In our own little nod to the Patron Saint of Pamplona (Saint Fermin) at our Bulls campsite in a culmination of live music, food, drink, sports and games. Take advantage of our unlimited beer and sangria for €10 per day and dance up a storm into the early hours of the morning.
Did you run yesterday and want to run again today? Do it! Did you not run yesterday, but everyone said that you totalllly should have, so now you’re going to run today? How cool! Maybe you ran yesterday and realised that it’s incredibly stupid and never want to do anything like that again... You’re not alone. Maybe you partied a little too hard last night and the thought of getting up before dawn is daunting? The point is, Pamplona is your oyster, and with Stoke you’re guaranteed to find that oyster to be delicious. That night party at camp with Stoked in the Park round #2 kicking off, featuring with more live music, more unlimited booze and more bulls-beating babes.
Now’s the time for your Bulls, Barrels and Vino adventure to end, check out and move to your next destination

Important Notes

1. WIFI

Please be aware that wifi and internet access is not as readily available in Spain in other parts of the world. There are often additional charges to connect to the internet, and speeds may be slower than what you are used to.

 

Itinerary Changes:

While it is our intention to adhere to the route described below, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary, therefore, on occasions there may be some alternations. While we operate successful trips in this region throughout the year, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather and common seasonal changes to timetables and transport routes. This can happen with little notice so please be prepared for modifications to the route. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary from time to time.

WEATHER:

Given the unpredictable nature of weather and travel, we are sometimes forced to make late itinerary changes due to unexpected heavy rain and/or storms and road closures. In the event of this occurring, itinerary changes may need to be implemented after commencement of you trip. In this event, your Tour guides have full authority to change the itinerary and/or order of activities and substitute alternative destinations and activities as necessary. No refunds are available due to itinerary changes and missed activities caused by extreme weather conditions and/or road closures.

 

Climate

SUMMER:

Summer temperatures can be extreme in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

SHOULDER SEASON

In contrast, weather in shoulder season can be unpredictable, and snow is not unheard of at higher altitudes. If you travel at the start or towards the end of the European season please pack accordingly with warm and/or waterproof clothes (preferably layers). The advantage of travelling during this time is that there are less tourists around.

SPANISH SIESTA:

Please note that shops, attractions, sights and businesses may be closed for up to 5 hours in the middle of the day for siesta time. This gives the locals time to escape the heat and spend time with their families, eat a large lunch or simply sleep through the most uncomfortable time of day. This means of course that people work later into the evening and dinner time can seem quite late: 9.30pm is not uncommon for family dinner time.

 

WATER BOTTLES:

Consider bringing your own water bottle to refill along the way. The sale of bottled water contributes to an enormous environmental problem around the world. In addition to the water in bottles, the production of a 1 litre plastic bottle takes 2 litres of water and 200ml of oil. A large proportion ends up in limited landfill or discarded in waterways and natural environments. Although it can be difficult to avoid bottled water when travelling, please use the water dispensers which are provided at some of our accommodation or simply refill with tap water. When unable to avoid bottled water it is better to buy the largest available and distribute into your smaller bottle for the day.

 

ARRIVAL COMPLICATIONS:

We don't expect any problems, and nor should you, but if for any reason you are unable to commence your trip as scheduled, as soon as possible please contact GoKo Travels or your Tour leader on the numbers provided in the contact selection of this document (bottom).

If you are unable to get in touch with your with us via the details given on our website, please refer to our emergency contact details.

You do not need to pre-booked an airport transfer, as your tour leader will collect you from outside the airport and will take you to your Starting Point hotel.

 

PASSPORTS & VISAS:

Passports and Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller. All countries require a valid passport (with a minimum 6 months validity) and entry requirements can change at any time, so it's important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Please note, that we require a scanned colour copy of the bio page of your passport at the time of booking. Some of yours arrangements cannot be completed without this information.

Australian, New Zealand, Canadian, US , British AND eu citizens currently do not require a visa to enter countries visited on this trip. Other nationalities should check with the relevant embassy or consulate in their home country for up to date visa information.

Passports have to be carried, but normally you do not need to show them. Stamps are no longer issued at border crossings.

 

FLIGHTS AND TRAVEL INSURANCE:

Flights:

GoKo Travels doesn't currently have the facilities to book your external/international flights. Therefore, you will have to prearrange your own flights to the required destination. We are always looking to improve our services, therefore, are planning to implement this solution as soon as possible.  

Travel Insurance:

Travel insurance is compulsory in order to participate on any of our trips. When travelling on a group trip, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance has been sighted by your Tour leader/ local representative, who will take note of your insurance details and emergency contact number. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability of luggage, cancellation, curtailment and loss and personal effects. If you have credit card insurance we require proof of purchase of the trip (a receipt of credit card statement) with a credit card in your name. Contact your bank for details of their participating insurer, the level of coverage and emergency contact telephone number.

 

MONEY:

When it comes to spending money on the trip, every traveller is a little different. Some prefer to spend all their money on alcohol, whille other prefer souvenirs. You know your spending habits better than we do, so please budget a sensible amount for things like meals not included, drinks, shopping, optional activities and laundry. It's always better to bring a little more than you think you'll need. Also make sure you've read your trip details thoroughly so you know what's included in the trip price and what isn't. This should make budgeting a little easier.

Exchange:

The currency of Spain is the Euros (EUR).For the latest exchange rate refer to https://www.xe.com but you are better office exchanging money either at the airport or withdrawing cash from ATMS.

Money Matters:

The most convenient and cheapest way to obtain local currency is via ATMs which are available in most towns and cities. You can obtain local currencies easily at airports and major train stations, but be sure to bring some extra emergency cash in a major currency that can be exchanged if the ATMs are not functioning. The safest option is to bring cash in either Euro or US dollars. When leaving home don't forget your PIN and make sure you know the telephone number for cancelling your card if it is stolen. Keep this in a safe place. Credit cards are not always accepted in stores and restaurants. While travelling we recommend you carry some cash to pay for restaurant bills and other services. Change can be difficult to obtain so throughout the day, try to gain as many small denominations as you can.

Contingency Funds:

Make sure you've read your trip details thoroughly so you know what's included in the trip price and what isn't. We try to plan for every eventuality, but there are still some things beyond our control. Please make sure you have access to an extra GBP£300 for emergencies (e.g. severe weather, natural disasters, civil unrest) or other events that result in unavoidable changes to the itinerary (e.g. transport strikes or cancellations, airport closures). Sometimes these things necessitate last-minute changes to enable our trips to continue to run, and as a result, there may be some extra costs involved.

SAFTEY:

As you may well know, adventures always carry an element of danger. Our GoKo trips are not just package holidays, they are immersive experiences that go off the beaten path and push can you beyond your comfort zone. That’s what makes them awesome, and that’s why we take safety very seriously.

Different countries have their own infrastructures, laws, regulations, transport systems, cultures, political situations, climates and ecosystems so the nature of an adventure means it carries genuine risks. With this is mind, we are dedicated to ensuring all reasonable precautions are made to provide trips that are safe.

We closely monitor all the countries we travel to, keeping in regular contact with our operators and suppliers for their local knowledge and expertise.

If you have any concerns about travelling to a particular country, most governments provide their own travel advice. Here are some useful links regarding foreign travel: UK citizens; US citizens; Canadian citizens; Australian citizens; New Zealand citizens. If you are not from one of the follow countries, please visit your official government advice page.

Many national governments provide a regularly updated advice service on safety issues involved with international travel. We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure. We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while travelling, for the safekeeping of your passport, air tickets, travellers' cheques, cash and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewellery at home - you won't need it while travelling.

Water based activities have an element of danger and excitement built into them. We recommend only participating in water based activities when accompanied by a guide(s). We make every reasonable effort to ensure the fun and adventurous element of any water based activities, have a balanced approach to safety. It is our policy not to allow our guides to make arrangements on your behalf for water based activities that are not accompanied by guide(s).

 

MEDICAL & HEALTH

All GoKo travellers need to be in good physical health in order to participate fully on this trip. When selecting your trip please make sure you have read through the itinerary carefully and assess your ability to cope with our style of travel. Please note that if in the opinion of our tour leader / local guide, any traveller is unable to complete the itinerary without undue risk to themselves and/or the rest of the group, GoKo Travel reserves the right to exclude them from all or part of a trip without refund.

Please note inoculations may be required for the country visited. It is your responsibility to consult with your travel doctor for up to date medical travel information well before departure. Information should be gathered round necessary vaccinations and anti-malarial requirements before departure.

We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit and hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements.

For legal reasons, our leaders and guides are prohibited from administering any type of drugs including headache tablets and antibiotics. Please ensure that you are adequately prepared.

 

EMERGENCY CONTACT:

While we always endeavour to provide the best possible holiday experience, due to the nature of travel and the areas we visit sometimes things can and do go wrong. Should any issue occur while you are on your trip, it is imperative that you discuss this with your group guides or local representatives straight away so that they can do their best to rectify the problem and save any potential negative impact on the rest of your trip.

We recognise that there may be times when your group leader/ local partner may not be able to resolve a situation to your satisfaction - if this is the case, please ask the leader to speak to their direct manager.

You may also choose to provide details in your online feedback, which we ask you to complete within 30 days of the end of your trip. But we do ask you to be aware that it is very difficult for us to provide any practical help after the trip is complete.
