I just returned from a five-day, four-night fly fishing trip in the eastern Pyrenees with Salvelinus. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was one of the best fishing trips I've ever experienced. Great fishing on mountain streams and rivers (a different place every day), a terrific young guide named Aitor and some of the best Spanish food and... More

Ivan Tarin, our world class fishing guide and all around wonderful host, thrilled us with magnificent fishing in the Pyrenees, including one day by helicopter in a pristine high mountain lake. My husband returned from fishing every day with rave reviews of unspoiled fishing and professional guides who felt like family. I, being less fishy, had a memorable adventure every... More

As always, Ivan and his Salvelinus team have outdone themselves. My 4 day guided, winter fishing trip with Aitor was nothing short of amazing. Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the trout and areas where he took me. I highly recommend Salvelinus for your fishing adventures. I'll definitely be back!

I had four days and could not find winter trout anywhere in Europe, and I knew that my old friends at Salvelinus could help (this was my fourth trip). The guides are truly impressive local experts (Aleix never failed to put me on fish and was a great companion) with a lifetime of experience on the waters of Eastern and... More

On the recommendation of another guide group I used Salvelinus. It was a side trip from Madrid which consisted of a 2 hour bullet train ride to Lleida and about a 45 minute drive to the hotel, with another 45 minute drive to the river each day. This is a first class operation from beginning to end. Aitor my guide... More

This was our first trip to Spain and we weren't sure what to expect. But it met our expectations and then some. The fishing reminded us of brook trout fishing in the Rockies. Some spots had lots of smaller feisty fish, others had fewer but larger and more selective ones. But, even when the fish weren't biting, the scenery was... More

This review has two parts: one for the fly fisherman and one for the tourist. For the fly fisherman:The variety of fishing experiences was impressive: One day casting streamers at the mouth of a stream feeding into a reservoir for large brown trout with the 6 weight; Next day casting small dries for Zebra trout in a gin clear mountain...

Salvelinus Fly Fishing Center is primarily a fly fishing outfitter working in the Spanish Pyrenees. Although the focus is on fly fishing, Ivan -- the owner and hands on fishing outfitter -- is very happy to schedule a wide range of non-fishing activities including photography tours, mountain hikes, and sightseeing tours of vineyards and wineries, and 10th century monasteries, villages...

The Hotel and Restaurant Domenc are traditional Spanish. The food is wonderful, Juan Antonio Domenc is a lovely person and an exceptional chef. He also owns the Hotel and the rooms are spotless, some with balconies and kitchens, all very comfortable. This is our 4th trip and we can't wait to go back.
