Glacier Adventure takes you on an educational glacier walk with a twist of an ice climb. Where the students are shown how climate change are affecting the glacier retreat. After the tour on the glacier, we take the group to our Glacier - and Mountain centre where we BBQ and do group work about sustainability and climate change.
The contrasts of ice and fire and have long gripped our imaginations. The raw and powerful nature of geysers, volcanoes, ice caves and glaciers hold a special fascination for many travellers; a fascination that is enhanced by understanding the science behind them.
“Civilization exists by geological consent, subject to change without notice.”
Introducing Geology and Volcanology
Geology is broadly the study of the Earth and other planets, moons, and smaller planetary bodies. Fields of geology range from the initial formation and differentiation of the Earth to modern surface processes, such as erosion and soil formation, and include Earth system history and the evolution of life.
The study of the generation and movement of molten rock on Earth and other planetary bodies, primarily through volcanoes and volcanic eruptions. This encompasses the generation of magma, its geochemistry and movement through the Earth’s crust, the physics of volcanic eruptions and hazards including ash clouds and pyroclastic flows.
Geology impacts almost every aspect of our daily lives: we’re dependent upon water, we need rich soil to grow food, and even our smartphones rely on minerals to work. Understanding these fundamental principles helps us to appreciate, respect and care for our precious planet.
Going beyond the superficial can be hard to achieve on mainstream holidays. We offer the opportunity to travel with purpose and satisfy your curiosity whilst encouraging respect and care for our natural world. All our experiences offer eco-tourism at their core.
WONDER SEEKERS scientific tourism travel adventures are designed for those who want more than scenic vistas (don’t worry, we have those too). Each trip is designed by passionate specialists who want to share their knowledge through immersive, experience-based learning in the subjects' most natural environment. It’s an exciting fusion of travel and science.
