A trip diary of our 2021 Morocco ‘The Trilobite’s Sahara Kingdom’ tour. A 10-day circular trip from Marrakech taking in the dramatic landscapes of the Atlas Mountains and the Sahara Desert.
We returned to Iceland in September 2021 to once again explore its world class geology. Our small group tour visited many of Iceland’s fantastic geosites, but the highlight has to have been the currently erupting Fagradalsfjall volcano – what a treat!
We returned to Scotland in June 2021 to once again explore its world class geology. Our small group tour saw the first identified thrust fault, dinosaur footprints, the first recognised unconformity, spectacular basalt columns, and much, much more!
In March 2020 we returned to Oman, once again, to visit the country’s geological gems. Focusing primarily on the north of the country, the tour was led by GeoWorld Travel’s Director, James Cresswell, with support from local company, Golden Highlands.
This is the blog of our ‘Canary Islands: Volcanic Island Hopping’ tour, which we completed in December 2019. The Canary Islands are a fascinating volcanic archipelago with many stunning geological features.
This is the blog of our ‘Morocco: The Trilobite’s Sahara Kingdom’ tour, which we completed in mid-November 2019. Morocco is an exceptional geological destination, as the desert conditions create large areas of rock exposure where fossils occur in abundance. It is world-famous for its trilobite and dinosaur fauna.
This is the blog of our new ‘Famous Fossil Sites and the Munich Show’ tour in Germany, which we lead for the first time in October 2019. Germany is home to some of the world’s best fossil sites and the most recently active volcanoes in Central Europe.
This is a blog of our Classic Volcanoes of Italy tour, which we lead for the third time in October 2019. Italy is a volcanically active country, containing the only active volcanoes in mainland Europe.
This is a blog of our Geology of Iceland tour, which we lead for the fourth time in September 2019. Iceland is one of the world’s most spectacular geological destinations, with volcanoes, rifting crust, glaciers and waterfalls.
In July 2019 we led our Geology of Scotland tour for the fourth time. Scotland has incredibly diverse geology – it was here that the enormity of geological time was first envisaged, the first attempts to measure the mass of the Earth were made, Thrust Faults were discovered and middle Jurassic Dinosaurs roamed.
In early July 2019 we completed the Wales portion of our ‘England and Wales’ tour as a private tour for two guests who then joined us on our Scotland tour that followed a few days later.
In February 2019 we completed our first ever geological tour of Oman. The tour was led by GeoWorld Travel’s Director, James Cresswell, and supported by local company, Golden Highlands. The 9-day tour was a great success and visited geological highlights in the north of the country.
In March 2019, we completed our first ever geological tour of Namibia. The tour was led by German/Namibian geologist Nicole Grünert, and co-led by GeoWorld Travel’s Director, James Cresswell. The 15-day tour was a great success and visited the geological highlights in the north of the country.
We have just returned from an exciting trip to the Canary Islands where we were checking out the geology in…
