Navarra is a land of geographical diversity leaving its mark on its gastronomy. You will find the Pyrenees mountains, the fertile valleys, and the French border to the north. To the south the dusty dry rolling hills and La Rioja. To the west the surprising Basque Country. And last but not least, to the east, beautiful Aragón. Even though Navarra is a very small region of Spain, is very well known to the world as part of the Camino de Santiago, for its festivities like San Fermin and making foreigners feel welcomed. Its gastronomy is also an essential part of its fame. From a delicious grilled ribeye and its cider tradition to the Pintxos in Estafeta Street (Pamplona) or a taste of its wines with Appellation of Origin. Come and enjoy Navarra with us!

Pamplona, the capital of Navarra, is one of the main stops in the Saint James Way (Camino de Santiago). Every year it’s visited by people from all over the world, has one of the best universities in Northern Spain and it is legendary for one of the most famous festivities in Spain, the Fiesta de San Fermín. These three main characteristics give Pamplona a special atmosphere, where we can breathe the enthusiasm and feel the affection of the people, who are welcoming and happy to meet foreigners.
During our walking tour, we will talk about and follow the path of the San Fermin Festivities when thousands of people run in front of the angry bulls through the main streets of the historical centre. -come around the 7th of July if you want to feel the party.
