Hilbers, Dirk.

Some areas just seem to have it all and the Camargue region is among those fortunate ones. Just far enough south to shake off the last edges of the temperate climate, the Camargue and surrounding areas already display some of the best that Mediterranean nature has to offer.
This guidebook describes the nature of three totally different areas that are each others direct neighbours: Camargue, La Crau and Les Alpilles.
The Camargue is a huge complex of meadows, reedbeds, dunes and salt marshes filled with birds. Visitors are treated to grand views over large lagoons with flamingos and waterfowl. The famous Camargue horse roams the open plains. The shimmering steppes of La Crau are inhabited by a Sahara-like birdlife. Les Alpilles have yet another appeal. The forested hills and limestone cliffs are dotted with orchids and inhabited by beautiful butterflies. Combine the three areas and you have a region of incredible diversity. All you have to do is step outside and witness it.

This nature guide is part of a series of innovative new guides for nature enthusiasts. The Crossbill Guides combine interesting and insightful stories with up-to-date and practical tourist information. Detailed descriptions of hiking trails, canoe trips and car routes are conveniently linked to information on everything you want to know about the whats, wheres and whys of splendid nature.
