March 22nd is World Water Day. As every year, the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) wants to take advantage of this event to create a common space where all of us can actively participate in the reflection and awareness of this precious and fragile asset. RocRoi also wants to contribute to this iniciative with special activities in our centers of Llavorsí and Vilanova y la Geltrú.
It would be difficult to find someone who has come to do mushing at our activity center who hasn’t fallen in love with the wonderful dogs that make this experience possible. They are the undisputed protagonists of this activity, and with their enthusiasm it is impossible for us not to be infected with their energy and vitality.
Last week, Cercle Tecnològic de Catalunya (CTecno) organized the ICT Innovation Day in the Tourism sector in Vilanova i la Geltrú. The event wanted to boost the technological innovation of companies in the tourism sector. If you missed it, we want to highlight some messages from the participants, who with their knowledge of the territory and tourism provide an interesting vision to the sector.
If there is a tradition that the Pallars people especially love, this is the Night of “Falles”. An ancient tradition that is celebrated around the Summer solstice, which coincides more or less with Sant Joan (June, 24th). Hundreds of burning “falles” (torches) are lined in the mountains and squares of a handful of villages in the Pyrenees.
We are about to start the rafting season, one of the favorite sports for outdoor leisure lovers. That is why today we would like to remind you that if you are organizing a stag and hen party for the next few months, take this option into account, because we believe that celebrating this event rafting with friends is a perfect option.
This year Saint Valentine is on Tuesday. It may be a little more difficult for you to organize something special during Saint Valentine’s Day if we are working. But no problem for us! We have day and night-time proposals to celebrate it.
September. Perhaps for some people, this month marks the end of Summer and the return to our daily routines. But we keep on working to rend this month at least as intense as July our August. We still have activities on the river every day, enjoying the good weather that we still have!
And in September arrives, once again, the Noguera Pallaresa River Festival. In its fifth edition, the NPRF is an event that aims to be closing act of the whitewater kayaking season for paddlers from around the world.
As you know, RocRoi was born in the mountains, in the Pyrenees (Pallars Sobirà), precisely 20 years ago. Perhaps you are wondering how we got to have a base of activities in Vilanova i la Geltrú. That is because one of RocRoi’s characteristics is its concern to explore new horizons, to find new experiences to surprise you with season after season, year after year. And it was just exploring new possibilities that we discovered Vilanova, and we stayed. And in Vilanova we can practice one of our passions, kayaking, in a wonderful sea environment.
Last sunday august 9 was held the DAURADA SUNSET BEACH 1st edition at Ribes Roges beach in front of our base of Vilanova i la Geltrú.
