Bitácora organizes a 7 days geological walking holiday through the Cabo de Gata Geopark. Guided excursions in small groups. Explore Spains largest volcanic area, walking along the edges of the Carboneras fault and across the bottom of the uplifted seafloor between the rising mountains of the Betic Cordilleras, and along beautiful  bays and rugged rocky coasts.

You will get a clear picture of the consequences of the collision between the African and the European continent. You will see the visible precense of the Carboneras fault and you will understand the sort of vulcanism that is likely to appear in collision zones.
