What is Geology Adventures?

“As geologists, we are accustomed to seeking The Big Picture. That picture right now shows the healthiest path for our customers and guides is to avoid travel. We’ve cancelled all our spring 2020 programs due to Coronavirus. We hope to resume hosting our usual trips this summer”
Welcome to GeologyAdventures.com! I’m Bob Jackson, a retired geologist. I’ve been collecting minerals, fossils, and plain ol’ pretty rocks since I was a Cub Scout, and now I’m … well, practically a fossil myself. While working as a collector for museums, I’ve acquired some world class collecting localities which I’d love to share with you, your family & friends.

In 1983, after volunteering to run school field trips for my wife’s 3rd grade classes, I started this ‘little’ business, which has grown to provide collecting opportunities and learning experiences to over 2000 people per year.

Adventures in Spain

Join us for a wonderful adventure in Spain, home to the world’s best pyrite collecting, fabulous fluorite and the type locality for aragonite. Friendly people, easy accommodations, history at your doorstep, and great food make traveling there a pleasure. We meet you at Barcelona airport, and step immediately back in time to the 9th century. On our first nite, we sleep in comfort at a castle originally built before 900 AD Our first collecting stop is on Day 2, finding pyrite cubes at the world famous mines in Navajun. Over 3 days time, you’ll collect abundant pyrite in 3 different habits, including impressive matrix specimens of cubes and bars at localities not open to the public. We’ll continue our journey thru Spain’s mini-Alps, the Picos de Europa. In the Picos, we’ll visit the largest cave in Spain, and collect beautiful fluorite while exploring the eye-catching scenery produced when Spain smashed into France, along what is now the Atlantic coast. Using Bob’s contacts, we’ll visit great private collections and share the expertise of local collectors. Join us for an exhilerating experience in one of Europe’s most ancient cultures. 13 days of fun in the sun!
