The Pyrenees of Béarn
Trout stream of the Béarn mountains in the Pyrenees
The region of Béarn is only a small drive in the backcountry from the ocean celebrities like Biarritz or Saint Jean de Luz. It is a genuine region to visit offering a great mix of superb mountain landscapes, old stones, charming hotels, well kept villages and beautiful streams to fish for trout or salmon. We are offering very affordable and pleasant accommodation in village or country hotels. The local rustic gastronomy is really stunning. Please contact us by email if you wish to learn the price of a small break.
Open the gate to the Pyrenees...
a world of really nice and affordable village hotels & restaurants...
salmon rivers flowing in the streets of old villages
where you find mountain cheese and beautiful "charcuteries"
from picturesque street markets
or from my favorite "Fishing Butcher" !!!
Look at his salmon fishing pictures posted in his back !
He always gives the best advice to "compose" a fantastic fishing picnic...
And the great salmon pools are often also great picnic spots
And great trophy trout spots (here caught by your guide Greg).
