Begin your trip at Pont de Gau Park in Saintes-Maries set within the Camargue Nature Reserve. By foot, on horse-back or by canoe, you can birdwatch to your heart's content in this unspoilt and well-preserved nature area. Invigorated, take a breather on the beautiful sand at Crin Blanc beach. For your second day, head to Arles for a spot of recreational fishing or a nature walk at La Capelière. After being totally immersed in the lives of the 'gardians' (Camargue herdsmen) at the Jacques Bon stud farm, watch the splendid sunset on the horizon in Arles.
