Lionel Roux / Office de Tourisme d'Arles

Camargue, a vast wet zone located in the Rhône Delta, is an exceptional region thanks to it biological wealth, the diversity of fauna and flora, the variety of landscapes and the grandeur and history of Provençal culture. From sandy beaches to reed beds, from rice fields to wheat fields and from salt marshes to the deep blue sea... the Regional Natural Park of Camargue offers visitors many different landscapes. Camargue is the result of the battle between the Rhône and the Mediterranean Sea and, from the biological point of view, is one of the richest regions in Western Europe.

Camargue is located on the migration route for birds heading from Northern Europe to Africa and is a major staging area. It is also home to the only nesting site in France for its internationally recognised symbol, the pink flamingo. As well as pink flamingos there are bulls, horses, screech owls, slender-billed gulls, common terns, herons, beavers, avocets and many more... a multitude of animal and bird species lives in this exceptional region. A magical land of contrasts, Camargue is beautiful and changeable and will reveal some of its many different facets depending on the time of day and the season, with always a few surprises in store. Whether you love nature or are a fan of Camargue savoir-faire, whether you are alone or with your family, several sites will reveal how to successfully discover the Regional Natural Park of Camargue and respect a remarkable but fragile region. Visits to museums and natural spaces, walks or horse rides between sea and lake, a tourist route or relaxation on the beaches.... you can create your own visit, bearing in mind that preserving the beauty of this region is your responsibility too.
