  • From Arles: Half-Day 4x4 Camargue Safari

This territory, where water and alluvium, ponds, marshes and land all mix, has been the base of exceptionally rich human history. Discover the ponds and marshes, home to pink flamingos and many other birds. You will be welcomed on  private land to admire the famous Camargue bulls and horses.

Awesome trip! You going to see European Grand Canyon, totally beautiful, breathtaking! Have a few stops, take lots of photos, swim in the fresh water lake. Groups are small, max 8 people, mini vans are very comfortable and drivers , or I should say our driver/ guide Leo was excellent! Spoken few languages, very good knowledge of area. Just a couple of things every one should consider….. Beautiful lavanda flowering in July, so if you go on this trip in spring or autumn don’t expect purple beauty . Also the cars or minivans as well as comfortable they are for 8 people and driver. Isn’t big room to move, so please be considerate to each other and don’t wear strong parfums please . The rest is up to you to pay ( very good value for money) and enjoy beautiful Provence

We loved the trip! We would have liked more time in the gorge to go swimming/ kayaking. Less time needed in the village. Leo was a charming tour guide! You should have been clearer during booking that lavender would not be out this time.

Excellent daytrip with a little sailing involved. The anchor stop for having a slash an eating lunch was perfect. And the mediterran cuisine they served was just delicious.
