The 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.
