Private Provence Tour: Rhone River Cruise and La Camargue

  • Location: Avignon, France
  • Duration: 10 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3555PRVT11
Start your day with a visit to Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, a famous site for gypsy pilgrimage. Its fortress church proudly holds the relics of Saint Sarah, saint of the Gypsies. Discover the wetlands surrounding this coastal town that is right on the edge of the Rhone river delta, along with the variety of flora and fauna that are at the heart of one of France's most unique ecosystems. End your day with a trip to the small medieval town of Aigues-Mortes, Saint Louis' gateway to the sea.
The first stop on your tour of the Camargue will be Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, a small coastal town with a Spanish feel. The church (Eglise des Stes-Maries) is the focal point in a town that has been religiously, historically and culturally important since the 6th century.

Discover the rest of the Camargue while you enjoy a cruise on the Rhone River. In the distance you can see white horses and black bulls running free among the flora of the wetland region. This wonderful scene is combined with the beautiful pink legs of flamingos which add an exotic touch to the Camargue. The largest river delta in Western Europe provides a unique ecosystem where you will see some of the hundreds of species of birds that inhabit the Camargue Natural Park.

After your cruise you will visit Aigues-Mortes, a medieval city founded Louis IX, King of France, who wanted to build a harbor on the Mediterranean Sea. Learn all about the history held within the city walls as you use your free time to wander around and discover all that the Camargue's largest town has to offer. Some of the key sights include Constance Tower, the Ramparts, Notre Dame des Sablons, an early gothic style church, St Louis Square and the Statue of the King, all of which you can discover before your drive back to Avignon where your tour will end.
