Geotourism experts with scenery, volcanoes and fossil holidays around the world and the UK, and polar expedition cruises.

<p>Today I took took 2 guests from New Zealand on our Welsh Dinosaur Day Tour. We saw the best Triassic #dinosaurtrackway in Europe and the discovery site of the #dracoraptor #WelshDinosaur at #LavernockPoint  We also visited #BarryIsland and saw Carboniferous limestone packed full of fossils and unconformably overlaid by Triassic sediments. Additionally we saw beautiful #Jurassic #bluelias cliffs At #NashPoint #Wales #valeofglamorgan #geology #geotourism  <a href="http://www.geoworldtravel.com/welsh-dinosaur-day-trip.php">http://www.geoworldtravel.com/welsh-dinosaur-day-trip.php</a> (at Barry, Vale of Glamorgan)</p>

<p>A great last day to our #Scotland trip - #siccarpoint considered by many to be the world’s most important #geosite. #Silurian sediments lain down in submarine slides down the continental shelf, then squeezed, folded and tilted. Later this was eroded then in the #Devonian angular fragments of this rock slipped down steep slopes and were  moved on by seasonal rivers and then slightly later still rivers deposited sands in the wet season and winds blew fine grains depositing dunes in the dry season. Then later still all these sediments were further titled by tectonic movements. All of this took an awful lot time - James Hutton realised this and thus was one of the Fathers of Geology! In additional to all this #geology we had a great picnic on the cliff tops and admired the passing #dolphins and #seabirds (at Siccar Point)</p>

<p>We had a great penultimate day on our #Scotland #geology trip, visiting #fingalscave on #Staffa with its incredible cooling columns in its 50ma lava flows. We also visited #Lunga where we saw many seabirds including #puffins and #Mull where we saw a #whitetailedseaeagle (at Fingal’s Cave)</p>
