From Avignon: Wild Landscapes of the Camargue
- Small group
- Duration: 9 hours
Travel in a comfortable minivan through the wild landscapes of Camargue, listening to your guide's insightful commentary while looking out for flamingos, black bulls, and wild horses. See the local salt marshes and rice fields before visiting Pont de Gau's Ornithological Park, which hosts several species of birds including pink flamingoes all year round. Then, drive to Saintes-Maries-De-La-Mer, which is an important pilgrimage destination for traveller communities. Afterwards, you can opt for a refreshing swim in the Mediterranean Sea or a stroll along the lively streets of the village and a visit to its fortified church. You will have some free time for lunch there. Finally, visit Aigues Mortes and travel back to the Middle Ages in this wonderful fortified town, surrounded by warmly colored salt pans.

We (2 adults, children 8 and 4 years) booked the day tour "Wild Landscapes of the Camargue" in English and were very satisfied. Our guide was very friendly and showed and told us a lot. First we were in the Flamingo Park, which we could visit for about 1 1/2 hours. After that we were in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer for almost 3 hours, a very nice place with bathing possibilities in the sea (you should pack your bathing suit). Then we were 1 1/2 hours in Aigues-Mortes, which is also a beautiful place, known for its salt lake. While driving in a spacious open-plan car (with child seats), we could see the typical white Camargue horses and black cattle and of course vineyards. We were completely satisfied. We had food with us, which I would recommend, so you have more time to visit the cities. Mouth protection is mandatory in the current situation and was also observed by the guide. We were very satisfied. Thank you for the nice day, Merci!
