  • The Running of the Bulls in Pamplona

    The fiestas of San Fermin are celebrated in Pamplona, in the region of Navarra, every year from the 6th to the 14th of July. They have become internationally known because of the running of the bulls, where the bulls are lead through the streets of the old quarter as far as the bull ring by runners.

    The “Encierro” is the event at the heart of the Sanfermines and makes the fiesta a spectacle that would be unimaginable in any other place in the world. It was born from need: getting the bulls from outside the city into the bullring. The encierro takes place from July 7th to 14th and starts at the corral in Calle Santo Domingo when the clock on the church of San Cernin strikes eight o”clock in the morning. After the launching of two rockets, the bulls charge behind the runners for 825 metres, the distance between the corral and the bullring. The run usually lasts between three and four minutes although it has sometimes taken over ten minutes, especially if one of the bulls has been isolated from his companions.

Come, let's travel.

This is what we do !!

Let’s explore, dream, discover. Let’s soak in the milieu – of big cities, towns with character, quaint villages. Taste the flavours, observe the customs, understand the religions and flow with the tide of humanity. Let’s make a start. A different start. Where planning itself becomes an enriching part of the journey.
Pilgrim’s Progress will be with YOU – right from the first tentative step of fixing a date: go through the whole array of possible destinations; match your budget: to then arrive at an ‘Itinerary’.
A holiday is a holiday is a holiday.
The high spirits, the thrill, the joy de verve … Pilgrim’s Progress will partner you and stitch together the whole programme. The transportation, the hotels, the home stays, the farm stays. We will help with the tiresome process of documentation. The minor details, which you may usually miss. There should be interesting options available. We will be different.
Pilgrim’s Progress is much more than your familiar ticketing agent. We certainly provide more options than the tour operator who places before you a series of set packages. There are an immense variety of interesting experiences that big Travel Agencies would not bother to dwell into.
Get out of the notion of the ‘packaged deal’. You will soon realize that the cost of Family and Individual travel can be reasonably low and offers excellent value for money.
