The regional natural park of the Camargue
The Camargue, a natural region in the south of France, is located on the shores of the Mediterranean, inside the Rhone delta, and extends over the three communes of Arles, Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. A fragile sanctuary for a unique fauna and flora in Europe, this regional natural park of the Camargue is home to an exceptional living heritage and is home to numerous animal and plant species, which is why it has been classified a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
This reserve is also the largest in France with more than 150,000 hectares divided into 3 distinct areas. Covered with ponds and lagoons, the Camargue is a land of breeding where horses and bulls live in freedom in the middle of pink flamingos and nearly 400 other different species of birds. Also shaped by man, agriculture has developed within the reserve such as rice cultivation and salt harvesting.
On foot, by bike or on horseback, take the time to discover all the magic that the Camargue has to offer through the many paths it contains.
