Your adventure begins as you arrive into the Spanish town of Haro. After check-in, your guide will take you around the town as you gather your arsenal (wine, water pistols, and white clothes!) for the coming battle. Then, follow your guide on a tasty journey as you are taken on a delicious pinxtos crawl. Pinxtos are essentially the Basque regions answer to Tapas, tiny yet titillating. Have your fill of this authentic local fare! There is a palpable electricity in the air leading up to the battle tomorrow and as such the town is awash in activities this evening, party like a local with your fellow festival goers but save your energy for the battle to come.
We have an early breakfast this morning to allow us time to arrive at the battlefield for our early start. On this morning, the day of the patron saint San Pedro, a procession is held through the streets before the vino splashing begins. Jugs, water pistols, and even buckets will be used in this free-for-all as the wine rains down upon the revellers. Once the dust has settled we join the locals for a delicious BBQ or take part in an authentic Spanish pastime: the siesta. Party like a local this evening with the continued festival activities in town.
We check out after breakfast this morning. We hope to see you again, and if you re continuing your journey on our Hop-on Hop-off network, the next stop is San Sebastian!
