Castellfollit de la Roca is a town of approximately 1,000 inhabitants in an area of less than a square kilometre, making it one of the smallest towns in Catalonia. This small urban area is bordered by the confluence of the Fluvià and Toronell rivers, between which the town's spectacular basalt cliff rises.

The sight of the church and the houses high on the edge of the basalt precipice has become one of the most photographed and painted images in Catalonia; it is also however a magnificent natural viewpoint overlooking the valleys of the two rivers.

  • ascension c.

    Hi, I'm new and in the waiting list (I think). I guess, Ritz, you'll let us know soon whether there is room for some of us, right?Thanks!!

    April 11, 2013

    • Ritz

      You are already on confirmed list.. Dont worry. See you at 9.00 on Saturday

      April 11, 2013

  • Ritz

    @Charles and Javier: when i said repeatedly in my previous posts, the price is going to be much less than that, then why are you commenting all about. Just let me take care of it.. Its upto you, if you want to come or not, but kindly do not complain it is expensive or silly things like that

    April 10, 2013

    • Xabier

      Well, when you wrote in previous posts "Bus journey is around 25€" i took it like that. that is all. i don't think i was the only one. So no silly thinks by my part. :-)

      April 11, 2013

    • Ritz

      Well.. OK..that finishes the topic of price.. Lets go further beyond to next part..Just make sure we are all there.. coz the capacity of bus is 50 ...I hope everybody will show up now.. No more changes in RSVPs as I said before. (except in force majuere or unforceable circumstances) :-)... We will be having entire Bus for us..So lets have a wondrful trip all the way

      April 11, 2013

  • Peter

    I think its an amazing Idea!!!!
    And price well, if we have money for treatments to lose weight, special Soaps, Expensive creams, Great Mojitos and old Wines, whats wrong on spending some money on Health, transport end Great Fun!
    He Ritz, it better be Fun! If not somebody will be Skydiving from that Cliff! lol. See you all on Saturday...

    April 11, 2013

    • Ritz

      Thats true.. Why spend money on treatments to lose weight... when you can lose weight by hiking? ;-)

    The strangest and an amazing place we are going to visit during our Hike around Castellfollit: A natural cave formation.. a labyrinth of underground tunnels.. confusing and dark.. Only if you can dare to go. ;-) Check out an article about this place on this link below:

    1 · April 11, 2013

  • Ritz

    Just a hint..We will make price between 10-15€.. But I cant say exact price till now.. coz it depends on bargain with Co. and on number of ppl that will show up on that day.. WE will be paying to driver directly.. SO I can just advice you to keep handy 10€ change.

    FYI : If you make this trip alone, It will cost you 27.50€
    But, If you are coming with group like this.. just estimating around 10-15€.. So, let the rest be a surprise.. for who who worry about price.. Happy??

    April 11, 2013

  • Jekaterina K.

    Ritz, can you confirm if I´m still on the list for the event?

    April 10, 2013

    • Ritz

      You are already confirmed.. As you are on list.. So dont worry.. Just be there at 9.00 in the morning

      April 11, 2013

  • Petra

    Oh I don't think anyone meant anything wrong, people may plan their trips based on price too which is understandable. But for sure Ritz will negotiate the best price for us without charging anything extra for organizing as always:)

    April 11, 2013

    • Ritz

      Exactly.. Some understanding is needed .. rather than a million lines of explaining..Rest assured..If all of us will be there.. It is surprisingly cheaper..

      April 11, 2013

  • Charles

    Is the bus really 25E? this makes the trip quite expensive.

    Hi!! BTW, how much is the bus/journey? how are you planning the lunch? Shall we bring our own one? Or you mean to have lunch in a bar? Thanks!

    April 9, 2013

    • Ritz

      Bus journey is around 25€ . It could be much lesser than that. About lunch, u can either bring your own or have there in restaurant after our hike. We will have a coffee in restaurant there in Castellfollit on top of cliff before we start hike

      April 10, 2013

    • Xabier

      25Euros Bus? so taking into account that we are 50, that means the Bus is 1.250Euros??? sounds quite wierd to me!!

    NOTE: For those who haven't read my previous message,: And all those who had RSVPed "Yes" recently, Due to previous experience, I am adopting a strict code for these events, I would like you to update & confirm your RSVP by 9th April by 9.00 AM in morning, since there are many people in waiting list.

    In exceptional circumstances, It can be possible to change your RSVP after this date.. But as we all know, these exceptional circumstances can only occur rarely.. not all the time. So, In case any of you didn't show up after confirming your RSVP, they will be removed from this meetup group..
