We will meet directly in the BRAVANARIZ head quarters. Barri de la Pobla nº1, de Pontós.
When we will start:
At 10 am, welcome, material distribution and preparatory exercises. At 10.30 we will start the walk
What do you need:
Curiosity and good spirits, although a hat, warm clothes and comfortable shoes will not go amiss. The rest is up to us: basket and pruning shears, gloves, fresh water, homemade lemonade, herbal teas, coffees, pastries, cold meats, good wine and other delicacies. Oh, and an important recommendation: don’t come perfumed. It seems obvious, but it’s worth remembering. Bear in mind that some synthetically perfumed shampoos, conditioners and deodorants are so “effective” that the cloud of fake good smell in which they enclose you will prevent you and others from enjoying the experience to the full.
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.
We will be few
Protecting and respecting our natural environment is of vital importance to us. To cross the landscape is already to transform it. The last thing we want is to fill these places with groups of walkers. Also for you, the experience will be much more intense if you don’t have the feeling of being in a herd. For this reason, we will be few in number (max. 12 people) and our calendar of activities will be very spaced out and reduced. So if you are interested in any of the modalities we propose, write us soon and book, they fill up very quickly.
Don’t come scented
It is important, if you want to immerse yourself olfactorily in the landscape and live an authentic wild experience.
It seems obvious but it’s worth remembering.
Be aware that some synthetically scented shampoos, conditioners and deodorants also remain “effectively” enclosing you in a cloud of fake good smell.
This not only robs you of the opportunity for an authentic sensory experience, but also clouds the olfactory experience for others.
Nature has a subtlety and elegance that is unfriendly to stridency. If you want to appreciate it with all the power of its simplicity, don’t disguise your own scent too much. Nature smells. So do we.
Beware of the sun
Remember to bring hats, caps or scarves to protect yourself from the sun. It beats down hard in these parts and is especially treacherous when it’s windy and you think you’re safer. Organic, unscented sunscreen is recommended.
Wear good shoes. We are not climbing Annapurna, but it is important that you are comfortable enough to be able to walk all day (even if only for a few hours). Boots are recommended, but old sneakers or good used shoes are also an option. Elegance, like luxury, is an attitude.
Unless you like to show off the “scars” of a good cross-country trek, it is advisable to wear long trousers and socks. Especially in summer, thistles and dry plants can scratch your legs and insects will find your ankles easy prey.
For more serious things we have a first aid kit at hand with the necessary items.
