Geo Walking

Bitácora organizes a 7 days geological walking holiday through the Cabo de Gata Geopark: an active journey through southern Spain and geolocigal time.

Together with a guide and a small group we will discover Spain’s largest volcanic area, walk across rising mountains and dried-up oceans floors, and enjoy the beautiful bays and rugged rocky coasts. Not only geology though. There will be time to taste Spanish food in local cafes and restaurants, discover pretty villages and get to know the Andalusians.

 

Geologically speaking the area is a paradise. We will see the results of the collision between the African and the European continent: mountain ranges, faults, folds, volcanoes. We will discover the coral reefs which formed on top of the volcanoes and learn about the tropical conditions and the high seawater level some 6 million years ago. We will discover fossil beaches as well as huge sediment packages covering the old ocean bottom.

Furthermore, we will try to read the landscape together: understanding what we can see in rocks and on mountain slopes and how people dealt with the scarce water in the past. Putting on geological glasses that you can use for your next trip.

Next excursion from the 15th to the 23rd of November 2019.
Price per person 590 euro.

Diving

The Cabo de Gata Natural Reserve contains a wide coastal area as well. The beautifull under water landscape with its abundant natural life, can only be witnessed by going there under water. Of course snorkling is an option, but if you like to explore deeper areas  you will need a more profesional aproach, including  diving lessons if needed. We selected a nearby diving school.
