Noted for its abundant and untamed natural beauty, the Camargue Regional Nature Park is an 820km2 (350,000 acre) haven for flamingos, bulls, white Camargue horses and a variety of other unique species of wildlife. Formed along the Rhone River delta, this landscape of wetlands, grasslands, pastures and salt flats makes for an incredibly one of a kind sensory experience, complete with a variety of methods available for visitors to go about the business of exploring.
Take a boat up river, ride 4x4s along the sand dunes, or pack a lunch and head out on foot or bike along any number of winding pathways. Don't forget to print up a map online, or pick one up in nearby Arles, in order to navigate your way through the trails and towns, and pack plenty of insect repellent as the mosquitoes around Camargue can get pretty prolific.
Location:90 km (60 miles) northeast of Marseille, France
