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.
A selection of the best photos from our May 2022 Scotland trip. We were treated to some wonderful geological highlights, including Siccar Point, the Ardnmurchan Volcano and the iconic Fingal’s Cave.
In April 2022, we ran our England & Wales trip for the first time. This journey through the geologic timescale took us from the Jurassic Coast, to the Brecon Beacons, up to Snowdonia and over to Shropshire. 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.
