WHY GEOLOGISTS ARE THE NEXT TOUR GUIDES

Tour guides can actually elevate our experience when we travel. Because they give us insights and stories on places we visit in our travels.

I personally had much more interesting visits to a place when I joined a tour. Hence I felt more interested in learning more about it when I heard what the tour guide was saying.

Therefore we are learning about stories that you can not find in any guide book. These are the local legends that are known from mouth to mouth.

Yet there are not tour guides for every interest. So most of them are more into history and archaeology, because these are the most common courses they are taught in colleges. 

Geologists as tour guides in geotourism 

Geologists are becoming more and more often tour guides in geotourism. Hence they are providing an alternative service in touring. 

Already many places in the world, like Iceland, USA or UK, are quite famous for their geological tours. But more and more countries are becoming geotourism destinations, such as Greece. 

In more detail geological tours are organised by geologists and they are offering touring in known geological landscapes. So they are offering guided tours in volcanoes, glaciers fossil sites, geoparks and others.

But this type of tourism is only starting as more and more geologists are turning to geotourism. In this episode I am explaining why you should try a tour with a geologist. So I am uncovering this new service that excites many travellers around the world. 

So watch the episode and let me know if you will try it on the comments below. Are you already a geotourist? We will love to hear your experience. 

Important: share only your own story directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, websites etc. will be removed.

Thank you for sharing your story.   

So keep learning. Keep growing.
