Enjoy a Bespoke Fly Fishing Adventure in Spain

Choose Orvis-endorsed accommodations at a Salvelinus Lodge on your fly-fishing adventure in the Spanish Pyrenees. Salvelinus’ program is easily customized to fit your travel plans. For example, you can fish different locations each day in a week, choosing from spring creeks in alpine meadows, larger streams flowing through verdant valleys in the mid and low country, or remote streams and lakes, including helicopter fly-outs to the most unspoiled waters.

Experts, beginners, and non-anglers can all be accommodated for a well-rounded travel experience; and it’s possible to make this a memorable holiday for companions who don’t fish and prefer to sightsee, explore ancient villages and national parks, or learn more about Spanish culture, including the delights of its food and wine.

This flexibility and expertise makes Salvelinus a unique operation in Europe. Add a trip to Spain or a Mediterranean Cruise to a week in any of these lodges and you will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you and your loved ones.

The Fishing

What to Expect
From UNESCO’s biosphere reserves or preserved National Parks to recondite fly fishing spots, 700 miles of river and 20 lakes within an hour drive from Salvelinus’ Eastern Pyrenees location, Arén Lodge. Truly magnificent valleys between Spain and France set against a setting of rugged alpine wilderness and filled with sparkling waters as clear as glass.

The Season: March 1st to November 30th
Fly fish a selection of major wild trout rivers and streams of the Pyrenees from Arén; a medieval village from where you can explore a variety of waters for all skill levels, delve into local culture and history, or get carried away by the superb hearty cuisine crafted in the lodge’s 300 years old private restaurant. Early Spring offers great BWOs. The best Summer fishing is in the highlands. Stable weather in late October and November bring productive nymphing.


Santa Cilia Lodge
Located in Western Pyrenees, Santa Cilia Lodge is a 15th-century palace transformed into a cozy. five-room fly-fishing lodge that sits the banks of the Aragon River at the ancient village of Santa Cilia. The old winepress building, used by the monks of the Monastery of San Juan de la Peña 500 years ago, is now a bar lounge for the anglers. There is a terrace by the river, a wader room, a fly shop, massage room, as well as a dining room converted from an old stable.

Aren Lodge
Located in Eastern Pyrenees, Aren Lodge is located in a 10th-century village within the natural boundary formed by the neighboring high-country area. The area remained untouched until the 20th century, and it is accessible through the Sopeira gorge. This is not a traditional fishing lodge, but a wonderful, intimate, traditional hotel nested in the village of Aren. It has a 30-guest capacity: 4 suites, 2 apartments, and 8 bedrooms, fully furnished.

Food and Beverages
Any of the accommodations included in Salvelinus programs offer award winning traditional Pyrenees cuisine prepared by recognized local chefs, and exquisite wines from the Spain’s best DO selected by expert sommeliers.
