CAPTURE THE SCENT OF SUMMER. Olfactory walk and creation of a natural fragrance. 11/08
Olfactory walk in the Albera
Come and walk with us through one of the most beautiful corners of the Empordà. You will collect the plants that give the Mediterranean landscape its aromatic character and distill your own 100% natural fragrance. At the end, you will enjoy a glass of wine in a privileged setting, and you will take home the essence of summer captured in a bottle.
A unique and sensory experience that will help you reconnect with nature.
Dare to rediscover the landscape through smell.

We will meet at 17.15h. We will distribute the equipment, give a brief explanation and a table of preparatory exercises. Then we will start our harvesting walk. The experience will start at 17.30h and will end at 20.30h in the evening.
What you need:
Curiosity and a good attitude, along with a sun hat, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. We provide the rest of the material: a basket and pruning shears, gloves, fresh water, and other delights.
If you want more information please call us directly +34 633224205 or write an e-mail to [email protected]
Once you register for the workshop, after making the payment, your booking will be confirmed.
Weather factors should always be taken into consideration. 48 hours before the start of the itinerary, and if conditions are favourable (that is, if they are not clearly unfavourable, such as with hard rain or high winds) we will confirm that the route will take place.
In case of cancellation
If the weather forecast does not predict a day sufficiently calm to enjoy the scenery, in agreement with the group, we will look for another date, convenient for everyone, on which to carry out the activity. If the activity is finally cancelled, BRAVANARIZ will immediately reimburse the amount corresponding to the payment received.
If you cancel for causes unrelated to BRAVANARIZ
If an attendee can not finally make the walk after confirming their attendance 48 hours before the start, BRAVANARIZ will not refund the payment received.
A small group
Protecting and respecting our natural environment is of vital importance for us. Crossing the landscape already means transforming it. The last thing we wish to do is fill these spaces with large groups of walkers. For you as well, the experience is much more intense if you don’t have the feeling of being in a herd. For this reason, we will go in a small group (maximum 12 people) and our calendar of activities will be spread out and limited. This means that if you are interested in any of the routes we offer, write soon and make a reservation, as we fill up quickly.
Don’t wear perfume or cologne
This is important if you wish to submerge yourself in olfactory terms into the landscape and have an authentically wild experience. This may seem obvious, but it is worth reminding you. Keep in mind that some shampoos, conditioners and deodorants have been synthetically scented, with their ‘effectivity’ based on a cloud of falsely-derived pleasant scent. This will not only leave you without the chance of experiencing the route authentically, but will also disturb the olfactory experience of the others in the group. Nature has a subtlety and an elegance that is not very compatible with strident expressions. If you wish to fully appreciate this simplicity, do not mask your own aroma while doing so. Nature has its own smell, and we do too.
Be careful with the sun
-Remember to bring a hat, cap or scarf to protect you from the sun. It hits hard in these areas and can be especially deceptive when there is wind and you think you will be fine. We also recommend biological sunscreen with no scent.
Wear proper footwear. We are not going to climb Annapurna, but it is important that you are comfortable enough to walk all day (even though it ends up being a few hours). Boots are recommended, but older running shoes or well-worn shoes could also work. Elegance, like luxury, is an attitude.
Unless you like to show off your ‘scars’ from an outdoor long trek, it is preferable to wear long trousers and socks. Especially in summer, certain chards and dry plants can mark your legs with scratches and insects will find your ankles an easy prey. For anything worse, we will always have a first-aid kit on hand to help.
