In November 2022, we took a group of intrepid travellers on our “Trilobite’s Sahara Kingdom” geological tour of Morocco. Our 10-day trip across the Atlas mountains to the Sahara Desert was not only a trilobite extravaganza but also took in a dinosaur discovery site, mineral mines and various historic sites. This is a summary and selection of the best photos from the trip.
We returned to Germany in October 2022 for our “Volcanoes and Famous Fossil Sites” tour. The sites didn’t fail to impress! Our group was able to enjoy some exceptional fossil specimens in various museums, as well as visiting fossil discovery sites and searching for their own fossils. Visits to Ice Age caves and volcano sites rounded off a fantastic trip! We look forward to returning next year!
A photo diary of our geological and archaeological tour of Italy. Starting in Naples and finishing on Sicily, the tour takes in world-class vulcanological sites, such as Vesuvius, Stromboli and Mount Etna, and fascinating archaeological sites, such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. These are some of the best photos from the 2022 trip…
A photo diary of our 2022 trip to Iceland, which included not only geological highlights such as steaming fresh lava, geysers and fault planes, but also some awesome Northern Lights!
In July 2022 we took the first group on our geological tour of Switzerland – an Alpine Adventure. We saw a wonderful array of magnificent geological sites and were treated to superb scenery. This is our illustrated trip diary.

Our itinerary took us to a wealth of world-class sites with a huge variety of geological interest. This is our illustrated trip diary…
A trip diary from our geological journey through Oman. In March 2022, seven intrepid geo-travellers joined us to explore the geological marvels this wonderful country has to offer.
We returned to the Canary Islands in January 2022 to lead our geological tour of these wonderful volcanic islands. As well as the usual geological features we see, this year, we were also able to view the impact of the recent volcanic eruption on La Palma and to see the new lava on the island.
We returned to Oman in December 2021 and embarked on another fantastic trip through this geological wonderland. The trip explored the world’s best ophiolite, traversed mountains, journeyed into the desert and much, much more!
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…
