GEOetc Field Adventures are wonderful learning opportunities for students, teachers, educators, and their families.  We have been leading field adventures for teachers since 1985 and have intimate knowledge of what makes a trip a life-changing experience for all.  Our trips are open to people from around the globe.  Trips are led in English.

We specialize in small intimate group trips – which allow us to focus on individual needs and go to places that large groups just can’t do.

One thing we pride ourselves on is keeping the trip price low and yet making sure people have an amazing experience.  We keep you safe, comfortable and engaged…all while we take you to places a little off the beaten track (but don’t miss the tourist highlights).  And all in the framework of living and learning and having fun together.

What do participants say…

“GEOetc field adventures is a rare educational geological experience, worth every penny . Priceless experiences in the field with geological landscapes explained in understandable terms for the amateur geologist. You donot need to have any background to really appreciate and learn something new about our planet.”   -Christine

“This trip exceeded my expectations. Iceland is beautiful and this trip included waterfalls, geology, flora and fauna – and excellent cullinary adventures! Gary is an excellent leader with a fantastic sense of humor and is knowledgeable in communication to all levels.” – Jenny

“This is an amazing trip for anyone who teaches earth science/geology, is a geologist or an enthusiast geology lover! You can never match the first-hand experience you will get on the trip seeing volcanoes, glaciers, islands, coastal features, rivers and waterfalls firsthand. This is truly an amazing trip!”  – Marie
