his morning we sail down to the Camargue as we head east on the Canal du Rhône à Sète that links the Petit Rhône with the étangs, those inland seas that nudge the Med to the south of Montpellier. We moor in Gallician, a quiet and typical village.
What would you say about a trip into the heart of the wild Camargue? There we reach one of the most prestigious manade, a typical ranch, where the gardians à cheval, the local authentic cow-boys, show us how they tend the herds of bulls on their superb white horses.
After a short transfer to Saintes Maries de la Mer, we start our ride back to the boat at Gallician by bike along small roads through rice fields dotted with wild birds, crossing the little Rhône river on a ferry boat. (50 km ; 31 mi)
