Create an itinerary including The Camargue
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. Make The Camargue part of your personalized Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer itinerary using our Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer road trip planning site.
