The Camargue, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur

4.3
#25 of 51 in Nature in Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Ride a white Camargue horse on a nature tour through The Camargue area, western Europe's largest river delta. See black bulls and more white horses grazing in the fields. Eagles, hawks, and harriers soar above, and muskrats swim along the little canals. This area was designated as a botanical and zoological preserve in 1927 and 1970, helping to maintain its natural beauty. Many companies offer guided horseback tours. You also can take a boat ride into the delta, if you prefer. The Camargue is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer Edition.

    Bella la Camargue, pure nature. Massive expanses of flat and marshy fields. Beautiful white horses. Pink flamingos and then reach the coast and the sea.

    The Camargue nature reserve is famous for its white horses and black bulls. There is a flamingo-but they are there and at other locations, therefore, do not represent special interest (if you travel a lot, of course). And here is a horse that is unusually beautiful and graceful-you just hit! They are so good and you can ride for tourists! Bulls blacken on pastures, handsome ... Nature there not too picturesque, like all floodplains. But worth a visit, especially if you have kids, and you-the townspeople. There is plenty of excitement.

    It was a discovery for me the Camargue. We accommodated 4 days at the campsite "The small Camargue" I liked the small shopping streets of the Grau of the King, the centre of Montpellier. There are a bunch of teams when you go to the site to attract tourists but I got hurt in the heart for these horses at the roadside in full sun and some did not have access to a water bowl! I've not been conquered by this region and will not go back, I wanted to change but the Côte d'Azur is definitely my corner favorite for holidays on the Mediterranean coast.
