The Camargue is located in the very south of Provence. It offers visitors an extraordinary landscape, a mysterious world that is so completely different from what we know from the rest of Provence. Land and water alternate here, merge, creating a swamp and lake landscape.
The flat stretch of land with its barren flora appears boring at first glance. But with its numerous lakes (étangs), the Camargue is a paradise for birds. Over 356 species of birds are at home here, including numerous rare species. But the symbol of the Camargue is the flamingo. The pink water bird can be seen on many étangs as it stalks through the water with its long legs. Another symbol of the Camargue are the white Camargue horses and the black bulls that can be found in the wild.
In 1970 the Camargue was declared a regional nature park in order to protect the unique flora and fauna. Furthermore, a strict protection zone was created in 1975 around the Etang de Vaccarès, one of the largest lakes in the Camargue. Large parts are closed to tourists and inaccessible due to the swampy landscape. As extraordinary as the Camargue is, it is a threatened landscape that must be approached with consideration and respect. Exploring on foot, by bike or on horseback is worthwhile and definitely preferable to the car.
