    This should be a fun gig. I'm hoping to make it. Neat looking location with gobs of distractions in the area.

    A number of the fun regulars have already signed on. Early registration of 95 euro due by end of Feb 2023.

    As well, if a person travels all that way, perhaps a warm up in the Sierra de Guara for a week prior? Be a nice option to bag Mascun, Formiga, Balcez etc. Enormous number of canyon venues and mid June could be prime:

    The organization team of RIC2023.CAT Catalunya-Pirineus welcomes you to one of the most interesting canyoning destinations in the Eastern Catalan Pyrenees. We would like to introduce you to the canyons of “Catalunya-Pirineus” in their best moments. Summer 2023, Juny 25 to July 2. Explore the region of “Catalunya-Pirineus” and enjoy its great beauty.

    The nerve center of Catalonia is Barcelona, very well communicated and is an ideal place to combine sports, sun, beach, mountain, gastronomic and cultural holidays. The base camp for the RIC2023.CAT is located in the village of “Sant Joan de les Abadesses”, 1h30’ far from Barcelona by car, where you can enjoy: eight days of canyoning, pure nature, relax, exploration, history, tradition, food, wine tourism, music festivals and much more! "Sant Joan de les Abadesses", in “Vall del Ter”, located in the north of Catalonia, in the Pyrenees, is very close to the French border and strategically located a few kilometers from the “Vall de Núria”, the “Parc Natural de les Capçaleres del Ter i del Freser”, the “Espai d’Interés Natural de l’Alta Garrotxa “, the “Espai d’Interés Natural de les Serres de Milany-Santa Magdalena i Puigsacalm-Bellmunt”.

    The base camp is located very close to the most beautiful canyons of “Catalunya-Pirineus”. Only 31 km from “Torrent de la Corba”, 32 km from “Freser Superior”, 33 km from “Gorges de Núria”, 35 km from “Salt de Sallent” and “Torrent de les Cavorques”, 40 km from “Sant Aniol” and “Les Canals”, 53 km from “Pas de l'Escalell”...

    In this place the climatic and aquatic conditions ensure the best combination. High level equipment in majority of canyons. Traditional high-quality food and plenty of accommodation with many additional facilities near the most important canyons. The RIC2023.CAT organization will offer (as long as there are places available) low-cost accommodation for the participants that interest them, in the same base camp during the "RIC 2023.CAT Catalunya-Pirineus".

    I've done via ferratas in this region but not canyons. There are some great ones though. Cheaper than usual too with the strong dollar. Pretty quick with a SLC to Paris or Amsterdam direct followed by a short hop to Barcelona.
