The Ebro Valley
Ranging from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean sea, the Ebro and its tributaries carved out a fertile land across the northeast of Spain. The area was peacefully inhabited by Muslims, Jews, and Christians for centuries, who left an impressive cultural and architectural legacy throughout the whole Ebro Valley that you can now discover with Salvelinus. Adventure among the mountains and valleys or relax with a private tasting of Spain's best tapas and wines and every day will be a journey of wonders.

The Ebro Valley
Let yourself go by the most fertile river basin in the Iberian peninsula
With 928 km (576 mi) in length and a drainage basin of 85,550 sq km (33,031 sq mi), the Ebro flows on screened by a realm of tall trees. For centuries, the river was the main commerce route in the region, fought over by Celtiberians, Romans, Visigoths, and Muslims. Later, it became a crucial battleground in the Spanish civil war, and nowadays, it provides half of Spain's hydroelectricity and enables farming in an otherwise dry region.
If you know where to meander, the Ebro valley is one of the few places in Europe where you can still enjoy a pristine landscape in solitude. With Salvelinus, you can experience these waters on foot, by kayak, or helicopter in a customized trip made to fit your specific needs. Come and share our love for the river and its vibrant environment both ecologically and historically.
The Ebro Valley, a verdant highway through Spanish history
The Ebro river springs in Cantabria from where it rushes into rocky gorges through Castilla León. Flowing eastwards, it forms a more extensive river valley of limestone rocks when it reaches Navarre and La Rioja to later cross Aragón and Catalonia. There lays Salvelinus' region, where the climate becomes progressively warmer, filled with sunny days and clear skies.
Salvelinus brings history alive amid calm waters and centenarian villages
Find a place where wildlife can outnumber humans, walk through secluded National Parks, visit UNESCO world heritage sites. And where water meets land, discover vibrant gastronomy, and the warmest hospitality in cities full of life like Logroño, Zaragoza and Jaca. Salvelinus offers unbeatable blends of walking and hiking with other fun-filled activities such as cultural tours, gourmet and wine tastings, and more. While Salvelinus handles the logistics and the equipment, you will be able to explore and experience the Ebro Valley to the fullest.

”We also included a perspective of cultural and wine touring in our itinerary. This was hosted by Sara and María. Their knowledge, communication skills, and wit were a delight. We were shown sites that were of intense agro and viticultural interest in the Ebro Valley dating back to Celtic, Visigothic, Roman, Moorish and Euskadi influenced eras, then able to share the bounty of the fields on the table and in the glass. Many of the tastings were paired with gastronomic experiences created by incredibly devoted chefs. With this Tour, we were treated to surprises that far exceeded any anticipation.Steve HyamsAK, USA
