World Bee Day
Off Road Experience
Next May 20 (Saturday), and on the occasion of “World Bee Day”, we propose a day of total immersion in nature where you can discover two fascinating worlds closely linked to Bravanariz through its BEE BRAVE project: aromas of our landscapes and bees.
An unforgettable day to welcome spring in one of the most beautiful and unknown corners of the Alt Empordà (in the foothills of Les Salines) and learn from the true masters of natural perfumery.
LIMITED PLACES (15 people max.)

We meet at the parking leaving the village of Agullana (on the way to LA Vajol)
When we start:
At 10:30h in the parking. At 11h, distribution of material and brief explanation. At 11.30 h we get on our way.
What you need:
Curiosity and a good attitude, along with a sun hat, sunscreen and comfortable footwear. The rest is on us: a basket and pruning shears, gloves, fresh water, homemade lemonade, beekeeper suit, good wine, exquisite food, coffe and other delights. Oh, and an important recommendation: don’t
come wearing perfume or cologne. This may seem obvious, but it is worth reminding you. Keep in mind that some shampoos, conditioners and deodorants that have been synthetically scented are so ‘effective’ that the cloud of falsely-derived pleasant scent surrounding you will not let you and the others truly enjoy the experience.
In case of cancellation
The weather must always be considered. About 48 hours before the start of the itinerary, if the weather forecast does not predict a day sufficiently peaceful to enjoy the scenery (with extremely unfavourable conditions such as heavy rain or wild tramontana) in agreement with the group, we will look for another date, favourable to all, in which to carry out the activity. If the activity is finally cancelled, BRAVANARIZ will immediately refund the workshop fee to the participants.
If the cancellation is for reasons beyond the control of BRAVANARIZ
If for justified reasons you cannot attend the activity and you notify BRAVANARIZ with 48 hours in advance, we will try to find a new date so you can make the tour. If none of the available dates match your availability, we will offer you to exchange the value of the experience for BRAVANARIZ products. If this last option does not suit you, we will refund the full amount of the activity.
If someone cannot finally attend the event after confirming attendance 48 hours before it starts, BRAVANARIZ will not refund the amount paid. The reason is that, in such a case, we will have already bought all the necessary products for an unforgettable day.
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.
