Madrid to Pamplona in a Morning?


I am heading to the middle weekend of running with the Bulls this year. I was going to fly in from London to Bilbao with plenty of time to meet my friends in Pamplona that lunchtime. However, it looks like I will be working in Madrid the whole week prior.

What would be the best and fastest way to get from Madrid to Pamplona on the Friday morning? Excluding driving.

Any help greatly appreciated.

You can do it by ALSA bus, www.alsa.es, takes 5 hours with a change in Soria, but you could get there by lunch time just if you left early (don't forget Spanish lunchtime is later than English lunchtime!).

Quicker though would be the train, www.renfe.es, of which there are two in the mornings. More expensive, but only 3 hours.

Whatever you do, book well in advance if it's San Fermin week, on both of those websites you can book online, I wouldn't leave it until you get to Madrid.
