Wildlife in Camargue and Provence

The Camargue region is a treat for wildlife lovers because of its light, its unique collection of flora including tamarisk and narcissi, and fauna such as egrets, pink flamingoes and ibises as well as horses.
You will have the opportunity to view the horses and bulls running wild in the marshlands in small herds, giving the area an unexpected country touch.
You will explore this little corner of paradise where all your senses are awakened. For the eye, it's a symphony of colors offered by the landscape, with the blue of the sky, of the sea and the lavender, the white lime stones, and the clay colored houses with their multicolored shutters.
You will ride through the picturesque villages of this region and will learn about its roman history.
