Camargue--Worth It? Like Everglades???--Opinions please

Jump to last reply

We are contemplating a cycling trip in Provence, and we are looking for easier routes without lots of hill climbing. Many of the easier trips seem to go from Arles down to the Camargue for a day or two, but I really don't know if the Camargue is something that would interest us. And, as we all know, lots of travel choices are made on the basis of comparisons of where people have already been.

We do like nature and watery environments. However, we've been in lots of different places in the US and Mexico where there are salt water flats, birds, flamingos, salt pans, marshes etc. For a European cycling trip we are most interested in seeing the man-made structures rather than seeking out a purely nature trip because we can do those at home in the US. If it truly is lovely and not just boring and repetitious, we'd definitely consider it. And, I am pretty apprehensive since a guidebook I've read compares the Camargue to the Everglades--a place I probably wouldn't choose for a cycling trip.

So, what are your thoughts?
