Purpose

South Wales GeoTours is an independent business providing fee-based, guided one-day tours to tourists and amateur geologists in the South Wales area.

Participants will be taken to world-class geological outcrops of Early Carboniferous, Late Triassic and Early Jurassic rocks and provided with an explanation of how the rocks were formed. This includes discussing aspects such as:

  • the Plate Tectonic configuration of the continents when the rocks were formed
  • the animals & plants living at the time evidenced by the fossils in the rocks
  • the structural history of the rocks since deposition

Trips can be booked through this website. Participants utilise their own vehicles to arrive at, and travel between, the different localities visited on the trips.
