This is a wonderful, full day experiencing the best of the Camargue, the unspoiled très-nature region known as the Wild West of Provence. I will pick you up at your hotel at 9 am. First, you’ll have a two-hour horseback ride at La Manade Bon, a legendary ranch where you’ll see the famous white horses and black bulls of the Camargue. (Don’t worry if you’ve you’ve never straddled a saddle: beginners are very much welcome!) Then it will be time for cool coupe de Champagne in the shade, followed by a picnic prepared by the Michelin-starred restaurant La Chassagnette. This one-of-a-kind lunch will include five courses, starter to dessert, made from organic and seasonal products. The picnic will be served with wine of course! After lunch, you’ll get to experience the famous salt dunes of Salin de Giraud…followed by a scenic drive along Vaccares Lake where, hopefully, you’ll get to see plenty of pretty pink flamingoes. A farewell drink by the lake caps the day. Gorgeous landscapes, great food
Born and raised in Arles—and fluent in English—I am un vrai Provencal…a real native! After spending few years living alongside the Mediterranean cost (Marseille, Hyeres, Antibes), I decided to leave home. My adventure started with the USA and New-York, followed with Sweden and finishing up with London, where I lived for over 4 years. But I then was ready to come home and I decided I’d set up business helping people visiting Provence and the Camargue to make the very most out of it. Passionate about food and wine, I created I Am Not a Tourist, offering day tours and authentic travel experiences following various seasons and themes. My goal? To help you discover the region through tasting and meeting local producers. If you fancy a chic gourmet experience, I can organize one-of-a-kind picnic prepared by Michelin starred chefs. Or a county-style lunch in the heart of a vineyard, with your own private chef. I also offer general day tours and I am very well versed in local culture, history and more. Plus, since I run a second company which edits and publish local tourist guides, I know all the best shops and restaurants—so let me recommend as I am sure you will enjoy these places as much as I do! My car holds up to 8 passengers. Prices begin at 380€ per day for a couple. Gourmet experiences are priced based on the number of people and the complexity of the lunch.
