What is was started by Mark Regouby in 2007. Through video guides, blog entries and narrative posted on this page you can become an insider of the festival, even before arriving. Here’s his story:

When I came to Pamplona to run with the bulls, I didn’t even know there was a larger fiesta called “San Fermín.” I drove my rental car over the Pyerenees, picked up a guide book at a roadside tourist office, and stood in a lonely phone booth in the middle of Navarra calling hotel after hotel for accommodations in Pamplona. The shock of finding that there were no hotel rooms in Pamplona led me to start

Along with a few more experienced San Fermín enthusiasts, I have put together a network of friends in Pamplona who cater to every need someone would have during San Fermín: Transportation from Pamplona area airports (Vitoria, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Zaragoza, and Biarritz); Apartment Rentals in Pamplona (especially in the casco viejo or old city); Dinner reservations in Pamplona restaurants and gourmet tapas; and most importantly, Balconies in Pamplona for watching the running of the bulls.

I know expert bull runners who can take you over the entire bull run route and explain how best to avoid mortal wounds. Running with the bulls in Pamplona is a dangerous activity, but well worth the risk if you pay attention to the change it brings inside you. Facing up to death on the streets of Pamplona makes every other challenge in life seem trivial when compared to the running of the bulls.

So, if you’re looking for a hotel room in Pamplona, I wish you buena suerte (good luck). Most of the Pamplona hotels sell out by mid-March for the running of the bulls. If you have a few friends with you and you need lodging in Pamplona, please send me an email. We can provide Pamplona apartment rentals to meet most groups' needs. If you just have one or two people, this gets more difficult... hotel rooms in Pamplona are best suited for sizeable groups, as Pamplona apartments typically can accommodate 6 to 12 people.

Coming to Pamplona to run with the bulls was one of the highlights of my life. I hope you have an equally fantastic experience during San Fermín.

I believe that the only way to truly enjoy San Fermín is to be right in the middle of the action. I can help you find balconies for watching the bull run and apartments along the bull run route or within a 10 minute walk.

After running with the bulls and celebrating San Fermín festivals, I decided to try living in Pamplona during the “normal” part of the year so I moved there to study Spanish. Pamplona is a magical city with a rich history. I’d like to help you enjoy Pamplona and the San Fermín festival as much as I have.
