This is the must see visit of the tour! Students will take a short walk down to the Causeway to marvel at the 400,000 interlocking basalt stone columns left by volcanic eruptions over 60 million years ago. Here, your groups can immerse themselves in the geology of the area: investigating intrusive and extrusive volcanic features, coastal processes and landforms, and also consider the human impact of the site. Students can then explore the state of the art visitor centre where they can explore the interactive exhibition.

Carrick-a-Rede is a Site of Special Scientific Interest with unique geology, flora and fauna. This visit offers students a unique cliff-top experience to traverse the 30m deep and 20m wide chasm by a rope bridge. Students will see examples of volcanic features and coastal processes, views across to Rathlin Island and, on a clear day, even the coast of Scotland!

The magnificent two-mile Strand of glistening golden sand is one of Northern Ireland’s finest beaches for sand dune succession studies. This is an ideal site for students to discuss and demonstrate fieldwork techniques and to collect data on succession. Key themes such as tidal flow and coastal erosion, coastal protection and the impact of tourism can all be studied here.

The diversity of topography, woodland and habitats found within the forest provide a superb area for geography studies. Both physical and human geography can be investigated at Glenariff from glaciation and glacial features to tourism and human impact.

Possibly the most picturesque ruin in Northern Ireland, students can make a photo stop at Dunluce Castle, or spend time discussing the coastal erosion evident from the stunning viewpoint of the ruins.

Whiterocks Beach enjoys a stunning coastal location. The soft, sedimentary rocks have been carved through centuries into a labyrinth of caves and arches allowing for the investigation of landforms such as sea stacks and arches.

Dramatic cliff-top views, ruins and a temple give avid geographers everything they need for an inspiring visit. Land management, invasive species and geology can all be experienced here.
