From Arles: Half-Day 4x4 Camargue Safari
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
Meet your guide and embark on this incredible half-day 4 x 4 tour. Located between the arms of the Rhône River, the Camargue is a wind-swept land made of salt and water. Birds have made it their safe haven and people have managed to intermingle with biodiversity in this unique place, breeding bulls and horses, as well as developing the rice culture. Camargue manages to seduce with its breathtaking landscapes and doesn't fail to impress. This territory, where water and alluvium, ponds, marshes and land all mix, has been the base of exceptionally rich human history. Discover the ponds and marshes, home to pink flamingos and many other birds. You will be welcomed on private land to admire the famous Camargue bulls and horses. Discover the heart of the Camargue Natural Regional Park and learn about its nature and history from your guide.
This is the second time we have taken guests on this tour and each time we learn something new about the Camargue. The trip is the best way to learn about the area from local, well informed guides. I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting the region.
After getting picked up from the meeting point in Arles, climb into an all-terrain 4x4 vehicle and set off into the heart of the Alpilles Regional Park, a small range of low mountains in Provence. As you drive, admire Roman ruins, vines, and olive trees spread out as far as the eye can see. Pass through the picturesque villages of Saint Remy and Baux de Provence, where you will make a 30-minute stop to explore on foot. Stroll through this prestigious historic settlement which offers extraordinary views over the surrounding countryside. Next, visit an olive mill and savor delicious local oils. Your guide, motivated by their passion for provençal culture will unveil the hidden secrets of the region.

We thoroughly enjoyed the local knowledge imparted by our excellent guide Isabelle and would certainly not have had the same experience on a self drive so would highly recommend
It was a great experience. Our very kind guide Michel taught us a lot about the Camargue and it’s impressive animals. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Excellent afternoon spent in the Carmargues seeing all the wildlife and learning about them and the land.
