Camargue is a region in Southern France known for its marshes and extraordinary wildlife -- the graceful flamingos and the white horses. This tour is a great opportunity to shoot the beauty of the white horses displaying their love for freedom and play as you learn and apply new techniques in capturing moving subjects. We will photograph, during sunrises and sunsets, these great white horses in different epic locations such as beaches, sand dunes, salt flats, grassy wetlands and lakes.
We'll have two shooting sessions again this day, one in the morning and the other in the evening. We'll have the opportunity to photograph the horses as then move around with their herds, guided by the ranchers.
Another thing we'll get to do is conduct some birdwatching, as Camargue is visited by 340 species of birds, the most famous of them being the pink flamingoes. In fact, the largest colony of pink flamingoes in the Western Mediterranean is a small island near Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer which is the only such habitat for these birds in France. There will be paths and observation booths in major locations for us to utilize when taking photos of these colorful creatures.
Our tour comes to an end and we depart to the Marseille airport for everyone to say their goodbyes and catch their respective flights out.
We'd also like to advise everyone that we suggest booking flights out of Marseille airport that leave LATER than 10:30 am so we have ample travel time to the airport.

The tour is always dependent on weather, as the Icelandic weather can indeed be highly unpredictable. Likewise, visits to ice caves are dependent on favorable conditions, and indeed the ice caves themselves are not permanent. When it comes to the Northern Lights, while they are most likely to be seen between September and April, there is no guarantee that they will appear on a given day.
