This nice little circular walk is located in a varied area. You can start at the campsite, walk past the horses and along Canal Vieille. Surprisingly many bird species! Especially in the early morning, large groups of Hoopoe can be seen here. Also Little Egret, Water Rail and Golden Oriole. A little further, in the more stony area, you have a chance of Stone-curlew, European Roller, European Bee-eater and different birds of prey.



Parking on camping 'La petite Camargue'. Click on the P in the map for directions. The circular walking route indicated on the map is about 4 km. Please note, during hot summers this walk can be demanding.
