Description: Le Domaine de Méjanes is open all year and enables visitors to discover the Camargue and its wealth of habitat in one of several ways – either by train, by hiring bikes or on horseback.

Location: 13200 Arles, at Méjanes on the Etang de Vaccarès, SW of Arles just off D37.

Website:, Tel No: 0033 4 90 97 10 10.

Our Recommendations: Take a 3.5km long circular train ride (pictured left) along the Vaccarès lagoon . There are flamingos, wildlife and other migratory birds in close proximity – as the train is electric powered it doesn’t scare them off as it approaches. It is also possible to watch events in the arena displaying the expertise of the Camarguais horse riders.
For the Children: This is a splendid opportunity to show the children some wildlife in an interesting setting – the train ride makes the whole experience much more enjoyable for them!
