Geotourism: Why it Rocks

Geotourism is tourism based on geological features. Over time it has been variously described as being a type of tourism that is either ‘geological’ or geographical’ in orientation.

We're ready to rock your world with this type of tourism! So what exactly is geotourism? Let's dig in a little deeper on how we break down geotourism with geology, geography, and tourism.


Geology is the study of the Earth, the materials of which it is made, the structure of those materials, and the processes acting upon them. It includes the study of organisms that have inhabited our planet. An important part of geology is the study of how Earth's materials, structures, processes and organisms have changed over time.
