Field Trips

Immediately prior and after the conference, two field trips to some of the geological features of Turkey are planned, offering the attendees the chance to explore the wonders of Turkey and discover new experiences and sensations.

Participants will be able to explore and uncover many mysteries of local geological history. Both field trips are fun and educational, so accompanying persons are also welcome to join in. However, trips are not suitable for children younger than 10 years old.
