Preserved natural site of ​​1200 hectares at the junction of two remarkable ecosystems that are the Rhone delta and the stony desert-like Crau, the Vigueirat Marshes are one of the most remarkable properties of the Conservatoire of the Coast in the Camargue.

In this exceptional site, you can discover a great floristic diversity with a mosaic of natural wetlands where more than 2000 plant and animal species live : over 300 species of birds have been observed, including all species of herons of Europe, and up to 35 000 ducks in winter. 5 herds of Camargue bulls and horses grazing on the field.

The natural heritage of the Vigueirat Marshes is recognized nationally and internationally. Classified National Nature Reserve, it is a central zone of the Biosphere Reserve of Camargue.

The site is open to the public to discover the nature and raise awareness about the environment and its protection.

All year, you can discover the Vigueirat Marshes in different ways : on foot on the “Etourneau” trails ( the “Cabins trail” and the “Palunette trail”) which are free access or with a guide or in horse-drawn carriages.
