Barcelona & Costa Brava Geography

Prices from: £199 (Based on 3 Days, 2 Nights)

A study trip to Barcelona and the Costa Brava offers numerous case studies in human and physical geography. The Garrotxa Volcanic Park with its volcanic craters, pyroclastic deposits, lava flows and tossols affords the opportunity for the study of volcanism and plate tectonics.

A day trip out to Vall De Nuria Glacial landforms with its U-shaped and hanging valleys, moraines and cirques allows for the study of Glacial topography. For human geography topics the resorts of Sitges in the Costa Brava is ideal for the study of crowded coasts and tourism impacts.

Barcelona itself is excellent for the study of changing urban environments, urban regeneration, industry and economic development. Barcelona and the Costa Brava is the ideal destination to put learning into practice.

Get in touch with Adaptable Travel and we will be happy to help you create the perfect study trip.

Great trip that was fantastic value for money for students. Food was great and catered well for the needs of our students. Communication with Adaptable before leaving but particularly whilst there was brilliant.

Only thing that let us down was the accommodation. The location and views from students rooms were incredible and we couldn’t believe our luck, but on the whole the hotel was very dirty and if you were unlucky your room looked down on to a wall with litter scattered around the ground.

the final arrangements were a little late in being sent through which lead to some anxiety.
