James Cresswell

GeoWorld Travel offers geotourism holidays and day trips to the world's most interesting geosites. Most trips are led by GeoWorld Travel's founder James Cresswell, as small group road trips for between 4 and 8 participants. Many of our trips visit Geoparks, National Parks, and World Heritage Sites. No prior geological knowledge is required on these trips, and they will appeal to everyone from beginners to experts alike. On a GeoWorld Travel tripthe landscape is explained in an accessible way, and while the rocks,  volcanoes, fossils and glaciers are the star attractions of the trips, there will also be stunning scenery accompanied by incredible wildlife and fascinating human stories. GeoWorld Travel also sells holidays to the polar regions from our trusted partners, for the same price as booking directly with these companies. James has considerable experience as a polar expedition guide and is very well placed to advise you on these trips.
