Could you try getting a cheap flight somewhere a little closer (Madrid or somewhere in southern France, for instance) and then take the train from there?

I agree with the previous posts, i would get a flight to Madrid then get a train to Pamplona. Also, you've got until the 14th to get there so you should be fine.

Myself and a friend are doing the same thing. We are arriving in London on the 3rd and making our way to Pamplona. We are taking the train through France to San Sebastian. We have heard from several sources that its better to take the bus to Pamplona rather than the train. Good Luck!
