The Alpilles is a remarkable yet little known inland birdwatching area bordering the Camargue and the Crau.
The craggy limestone escarpments are home to many sought after species including Wallcreeper in the winter months, Egyptian vulture in the summer and Bonelli’s eagle all year round. These dry abrupt landscapes alternate with olive groves and fruit orchards that are attractive to a different range of species including Roller, Bee-eater, Hoopoe, Rock sparrow and many other emblematic Mediterranean species.
Take a train via Lille or Paris to Avignon, where you can rent a car.
You can also take a connecting train to Arles to start your journey closer to the park and where you can rent a bicycle.
