2013-2014 & 2016 TRIPADVISOR CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE
SALVELINUS works with internationally renowned hunting guide Bruno Roschi to set up a series of hunting packages.
On the first day the guest will be met at Barcelona and be transferred by car to the Pyrenees. There will be enough time to register at the hotel, carry out a sighting session for one´s rifle, have lunch and go hunting until nightfall.
The following day´s hunting is from sunrise to sunset. When the hunt is successful the guest heads for the Eastern Pyrenees for the fishing part of the program.
The hunt will take place in the magnificent natural border between Spain & France: the Pyrenees, one of the highest mountain ranges in Europe; chamois stalking demands a high level of physical fitness as the chamois is excellently adapted to living in rugged, rocky terrain.
While the hunter is hunting, the non-hunting partner can visit the medieval town of Carcassonne, explore the castle and shop in charming local mountain villages for handcrafted articles.
The angler will be fishing the middle and lower stretches of the rivers of the eastern Pyrenees for brown and rainbow trout from 18 inches to 22 inches long. There is a very good chance of hooking a trophy trout up to 28 inches .
The fishing guide for these hunting & fishing programs is the SALVELINUS Head Guide, Iván Tarín.
Angler registers and has dinner at the hotel. During the 3 following days the angler will discover some of the many special fishing spots available.
This is –without a shadow of a doubt– the most exclusive fly fishing destination for brown trout at this time of the year in Europe.
There are plenty of activities for the non-anglers: spa and massage, visiting medieval towns & castles, Romanic churches & monasteries.
