Santorini - 10th - 24th June 2008

Santorini: living with a volcano
A Study Tour - Tuesday 10th to Tuesday 24th June 2008
Leader: Peter G Hardy BSc,PhD
University of Bristol; Department of Earth Sciences

There are a few places left on this fantastic tour - BOOK NOW!

Santorini is now a well-established tourist resort, but retains much original atmosphere and boasts the most dramatic and beautiful scenery and exceptionally friendly people. Combine this with fascinating insights into the heart of a volcano and the opportunity to wander through the streets twice as old as those of Pompeii, and this tour is sure to charm you.
This course will comprise the equivalent of around eleven full days of organised activities in which we shall walk considerable distances with stunning views, but at a gentle pace. There will be ample time to examine details, appreciate the views, study local life and to recuperate in shady tavernas! The emphasis of the course will be on the volcanic rocks and the resulting dramatic landforms. These will be studied in the context of their effect upon the life of the inhabitants, both past and present. We shall visit major and minor archaeological sites and examine the older local architecture, since this is so strongly influenced by the geological history of this largely volcanic island.
The price of the tour is £980 per person and includes -
- return flights Gatwick/Santorini
- transfer to and from hotel
- half board accommodation in twin room with private facilities
- airport taxes
