Did you know that there are volcanoes in Spain?

Did you know that there are up to 40 volcanoes in the Garrotxa Volcanic Park in North East Spain?

Last active only 11,000 years ago and easily visited and studied on one of our Tectonic Hazards field study courses.

Students get to see inside a volcano to study different types of deposits from volcanic eruptions, map hazard and vulnerability to produce a risk map, discuss resilience and climb to the crater of one of the volcanoes. All of this under the beautiful Spanish sunshine.

Have a look at our website for more details and maybe join us in October half term on our teachers inspection trip?

Many thanks!…
