About the trip
Join a guided birdwatching tour in Provence in the company of a professional and truly passionate guide.
The south of France is well known for its Mediterranean beaches, typical country villages, roman ruins and delicious Provencal food. What is less known about the area, however, is that it is a major crossroad for migrating birds in Europe and is one of the best places to enjoy birdwatching in the Western Palearctic region.
Our trip begins in the Vercors, one of the most remote Nature Reserves in France and a transition zone from the majestic Alps to the warm Provence. We then continue on to the Alpilles in the heart of Provence, a limestone massif with Mediterranean scrubland and perched medieval villages that inspired the works of Vincent Van Gogh. It is here and in nearby Crau, the ancient alluvial plain of the Durance where several very rare and localized species can be found. Finally, we finish in the Camargue, one of the most renowned wetlands in the world, located at the mouth of the Rhône river delta and the beautiful Languedoc coast.
On this Provence ornithology tour, the itinerary is tailored to show all the iconic species found in Southern France, enjoying the ecosystems from the Alps to the limestone hills of the Languedoc region, through the wild Camargue to Provence. Immerse yourself in magnificent landscapes, admire the beautiful architecture and take full advantage of the authentic cuisine.

. During the French spring, the activity of the birds and wildlife reaches its peak in the early hours of the day. For this reason, we must get up very early to maximise the observation conditions. Breakfasts will be served early and sometimes taken in the field.
