This ten-day (9 night) field experience will take you to the famous Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset, England and to the stunning and remote North West Highlands Geopark in Scotland. Join other educators for hikes, museum visits and talks by local experts to explore some of the best geological locations in the UK.
The first half of our trip will be on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset: a hugely diverse and beautiful landscape underpinned by incredible geology of global importance. In 2001 it became a World Heritage Site.
The second half takes us to Scotland and the North West Highlands Geopark where we see rocks that span two-thirds of the Earth’s history and which were instrumental in major geological discoveries in the 19th Century.
Both of these locations are renowned for their stunning scenery, wildlife, and history. Time is allowed to enjoy the views and visit places of interest within our packed itinerary.
