Tuesday 4th July: Barcelona
Check in to your hostel in Barcelona and meet your Stoke guide and new buddies. It’s the Fourth of July, baby! A reason to party for all Americans and anybody else who likes to get spangled. We’ve got a boat party on this afternoon, up and down the Catalan Coast, unlimited drinks and American college students getting lit, spring break style. Then it’s to the many bars and beach clubs, and don’t worry, we know where to go and we’ve already organised your free entry.

Wednesday 5th July: Barcelona
Recovery mode with a big breakfast, on the house. See some sights on a walking tour, where you’ll get to know the secrets of Barcelona, and stop at some bars, if that’s what you need. This is one of the world’s great cities, full of art and architecture, culture and sport, and nightlife. That’s right, nightlife. Are you ready to go again? Because round two awaits. Free club entry again tonight.

Thursday 6th July: Barcelona
Barcelona, the perfect place to lay on the beach and admire the beautiful people. To shop. To eat, or drink, or to just walk around. Maybe you want to do a little more, like kayaking and snorkelling up the coast, or a bike tour. We got you if you’re keen on one of these add-ons. And tonight? Well, it’d be rude to not party again, wouldn’t it?

Friday 7th July: Pamplona
Check out of your hostel and sleep on the bus on your way to Pamplona. You won’t make this day’s bull run – don’t worry – but you will check into the Stoke Camp, get your unlimited beer and sangria wristband, have some unlimited beer and sangria, join the day’s runners in Stoke Travel’s own central Pamplona bar, check out the city’s sights, and join us for dinner, drinks and dancing at the Stoke Camp at the end of the day. Tomorrow’s a big one for you.

Saturday 8th July: Pamplona
Up early and into town for the bull run. Whether you’re taking place 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 (for €5 return), and our guides will bring you to the bull run, if you’re in it for a thrill, or to the bullfight arena if you just want to see juvenile bulls take down drunks (nobody gets hurt except for the drunks and their ego). There are no bullfights until the evening, so don’t worry – you won’t see death unless you really want to. That night party at camp, again, or in town, or in your own pants.

Sunday 9th July: Pamplona
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. The point is, the Tuesday is a day to do the crazy San Fermines dance all over again. Run, don’t run; party, don’t party — Pamplona is your oyster, and with all your great new friends from Stoke you’re guaranteed to find that oyster to be delicious.

Monday 10th July: Zarautz
Smash your last breakfast at camp and roll on the bus to Zarautz, 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 the campsite for a kickass camp party.

Tuesday 11th July: Zarautz
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.

Wednesday 12th July: Zarautz
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 camp, 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).

Thursday 13th July: Finale
Check out is at 11 after breakfast that is. Now you’re free to go where ever you want. Those waves still calling your name? Stay and surf a little longer…

Where in Barcelona is the the hostel?
It’s in central Barcelona right on the beach, in an area called Poblenou just a few minutes walk from one of the nicer of the city beaches.

What should I bring?
Nice clothes for those beach clubs, sunglasses and sunscreen as it gets pretty hot, a pillow and torch for your tent, goggles, condoms, a waterproof camera, swimmers, old shoes that can be thrown out after the madness, and shampoo if you don’t want your hair stained purple for the next month. Oh and don’t forget a towel.

What is the breakfast like?

Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty fricking good at food.

It said on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
Yes, the twin tents are two-man tents. We have two-man tents, so if you are in a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Tents are allocated on arrival, so just let us know your preferences when you arrive. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want to leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… You never know…

Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items at the campsites?
The campsites itself do not have lockers, but we a campervan which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.

If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

And what amenities are offered at the Beach Camp?
We’ve got it all – hot showers, internet, a restaurant, a sidreria (ciderhouse), wine tasting within walking distance, a shop, flushing toilets, chillout area, great views, and the beach a 10 minute downhill walk.

Two of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
We cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal products and stuff you
to the brim with fruits and veggies and starches…..whatever we do, we’ll make a plan for you.

Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
No, but if you have any specific questions you must email info@stoketravel.com – the guys in the office know absolutely everything about anything.
