Sightseeing tours

The Petit Train de Méjanes


Imagined by Paul Ricard and inaugurated in 1968, the Petit Train de Méjanes is the only tourism train of Camargue to use rails. It is made of three charming carriages attached to two locomotives whose chimneys and cowcatchers give Westerns throwback.

The visitors discover the domain in the most exclusive and unusual way all along the 3.5 kilometer-long ride lasting about 30 minutes. Starting right by the Arènes de Méjanes alongside the Vaccarès pond, it goes along the conservation area nearest to the Camargue's fauna and flora. It then passes by the old Castle's fortress to finish back at the starting point. 

As in any good Westerns, you'll hear the train whistle three times on the way !
