The Ultimate Fly Fishing Pyrenees Tour

The Ultimate Fly Fishing Pyrenees Tour is the original made-to-measure fly-fishing adventure exclusively crafted by Iván Tarín after more than 30 years of scouting Pyrenean waters. Known as the most prestigious fly fishing trip in Europe, perfect for avid fishers and nature enthusiasts alike, this unique journey combines nature, gastronomy, wine, and some of the best angling in the world from the dramatic peaks in Western Pyrenees to the glorious green valleys of Eastern Pyrenees. Tackle four to seven weight fly rods for Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Iberian Barbel, and Zebra Trout. The fly fishing trip of a lifetime in an astonishing destination that is still a hidden gem.

8, 11 or 14 nights. From 8,400 EUR
Mid-March – Mid-June
Spring

The fishing season begins on the 1st of March when rivers are at their lowest water levels. The second half of May and first half of June are ideal for high mountain fly fishing and golden stonefly hatches.

Mid-June – Mid-August
Summer

Summer is the time of year for spending time outdoors in the Pyrenees because they are spared the stifling heat that can hit the flatlands. Look for good hatches in freestone rivers.

Mid-August – Mid-September
Late Summer

At the end of summer, average temperatures in the Pyrenees start getting crispier although not yet cold. An excellent time for targeting a large variety of species and waters.

Mid-September – Late November
Fall

Autumn is many people’s favorite time of year in the Pyrenees. Long spells of stable sunny weather and optimal fishing options in high and low river courses including tailwaters.

The Spanish Pyrenees

A memorable fly fishing experience in the Spanish Pyrenees with Salvelinus

The eight-night experience includes six days of fly fishing plus two days for wine and cultural touring — three days of fly fishing in Western Pyrenees plus three days of fly fishing in Eastern Pyrenees. Although the 8-day tour is appropriate for a short immersion, there is so much to see in the Pyrenees that the itinerary can be extended up to 11 or 14 days. An ideal trip for passionate fly fishers daring to angle in the best fly fishing spots of the Pyrenees personally chosen by Iván Tarín.

Discover a realm of trout-filled valleys located in its south face of the Pyrenees. Crystal-clear waters loaded with food, hiding places, and clean gravel where trout can lay their eggs. With 2,516 high mountain lakes, 16 main rivers, and 70 tributaries, in the Spanish Pyrenees, there are more than 2,500 Km (1,500mi) of waters to practice a myriad of fly fishing techniques.

Because each guest’s preferences may differ from one another, Salvelinus offers a wide range of fly fishing possibilities combined with a selection of gourmet food and wine options.
