Traditions & Country
Branding is a tradition still practised today. Camargue bull breeders put their mark and ID number on their bulls with a hot iron. Marking is necessary as the bulls are wild and bred in the open.
Camargue horses are indispensable for the work of the “Gardians” among the herds. They are bred throughout the Camargue and on your trip you’ll have a chance to admire these little lively yet easy to handle horses.
“Arlesienne” costumes have been revived over the past few hundred years. Today young women and ladies of the Camargue still spend hours dressing and doing their hair to proudly present their traditional costume held together solely by pins.
Spanish culture is everywhere in Camargue. You’ll certainly enjoy the gipsy songs on theme nights.
The wetlands of the Camargue stretch from the Bouches du Rhône to the border with l’Herault. The Petite Camargue will reveal its typical landscape of water, wilderness and bright blue skies. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable experience.
