The Carmargue region is basically a vast, swampy delta south of Arles. A large part of it is a biosphere is protected and contains lots of animals living in the wild. It can be visited all year round and any season is fascinating. Wild white horses and black bulls galloping around, thousands of pink flamingos in tall marsh grass—the wildlife of Camargue is really worth seeing. The park is at its best in spring and autumn when thousands of migrating birds come here. Birdwatchers from all over Europe visit Camargue to observe this natural beauty.
