Camargue is the region in one of the largest river deltas in Europe. From [[Arles]] the [[river Rhône]] splits into the Grand Rhône and Petit Rhône. The area in and around here is the Camargue. Largely a protected area, it is flat, with almost as much water as land. Wildlife is abundant, paticularly birds and wild white horses . Salt is produced in great quantity from the vast number of saltflats and highly regarded locally. There are only two small towns, Les [[Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer]] and [[Aigues-Mortes]]. The terrain only allows for a few minor roads. Travel by boat might be more interesting, but the opportunity seems limited except for a trip from St Maries up the Petit Rhône for an hour or two.
