Geography Trips to Northern Catalonia

Northern Catalonia contains a wealth of spectacular Natural Parks with varied geological features and ecosystems to study. The area provides some of the finest examples of volcanic scenery in Europe at the Garrotxa Volcanic Park, but also has wetlands, fluvial environments, limestone landscapes and of course coastal environments to study. The city of Barcelona itself is a fascinating case study in urban growth and development.

The dramatic and unspoilt landscapes and access to the city of Barcelona make this an inspirational destination for a geography tour that is not too far afield.
