Iberian Traveler is once again offering its Special 4-Day/3-Night VIP Packages for the opening days of the Fiesta de San Fermín and the Running of the Bulls in 2016.
|Come for the adventure... run with the bulls|
Iberian Traveler, through Sanfermín Tours, offers clients the opportunity to join Peña Seattle de Sanfermines on a private balcony overlooking the Town Hall Square for the start of another exciting celebration of one of the world’s most popular festivals.
