This gorgeous and unspoiled alpine region is home to countless rivers, lakes and streams surrounded by the medieval charms of the Pyrenees Mountains. There are a wide variety of angling opportunities in this prolific area: casting to rising rainbow trout in high mountain lakes, gorgeous wild brook trout in pristine spring creeks and native browns (including the Mediterranean zebra trout) in the lower reaches and tailwaters. Combining the variety of available waters and relative lack of fishing pressure in this part of the world makes this is a fly fishing purist’s dream.
Anglers will enjoy six full days fishing for trout. This incredible departure is also perfect for the non-fishing companion with fully-guided excursions into the region available daily. The evenings will be spent in comfortable village accommodations with great Spanish cuisine.
Aren Lodge serves as the main Salvelinus base of operations in the eastern Pyrenees and is close to the fishing locations in Aragon, Catalonia and the country of Andorra. The lodge features comfortable guest rooms, a welcoming lounge, dining room and complete spa facility.

The most convenient way to get there is to fly to Barcelona. Plan to arrive the morning of September 17 via overnight flight from the States. The group will then transfer the three and a half hour drive to Aren Lodge. On the departure, most international flights will require an additional overnight in Barcelona.
