    • The Banka aquaculture farm raises trout in one of the most beautiful valleys in the Basque Country. The pure and limpid waters of the Arpéa spring feed the basins of this old 17th century mill.

      The family fish farm remains more than ever faithful to its philosophy of requirement to offer rare products and of impeccable quality. Here, the fish grows in conditions very close to the natural state. The purity of the water; the quality of the food and the low density of fish are the secrets of this artisan trout.

      In the shop you will find all the products from the aquaculture farm:

      portion trout, fillet, steak or steak for fresh trout, eggs, rillettes, terrine, Basque trout, smoked trout in olive oil and the smoked fillet in beech wood, which is the prestigious signature of Banka trout.

      Free visit for individuals from Monday to Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

      Guided and paying visit for groups, by appointment, Monday to Friday included.

    Great couple of hours spent here, lots of trout to see of course, but also beautiful scenery as well. You can walk along the river for about 100metres looking at the trout pools and then continue up along an old cart track into the woods above the ponds for a very pretty walk. Uphill though lol! The shop is pretty decent, the trout caviar is delicious. They would make an absolute killing though if they just had a small café. This would be a lot better than the rather uninteresting exhibition. All in all well worth a half day visit.

    Interesting. You can follow the different stages of development of the trout depending on the basin. The course is decorated with explanatory panels. And of course there is the shop where you can buy processed products on site. I wish you a good visit.

  • "Wonderfully situated in a hidden valley,"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by AntoniaTrip (Bristol, United Kingdom) on 03/07/2015

    You need to take your cool box and get some wonderful trout from a sparkling river. The trout farm is set in the valley leading up to Spain. Don't miss.
