James’ career in the travel industry has taken him to almost 100 countries worldwide. He now runs GeoWorld Travel, which offers geological tours to locations around the world, many of which are led by James himself. A decade’s experience as an expedition cruise guide in the Arctic and Antarctic ideally places James to advise on travel to the regions, and through PolarWorld Travel, he can book you on an expedition cruises with the benefit of expert information and guidance. The geological tours and polar trips are available for individual travellers but can also be arranged for geological groups or societies too. In between the international tours, James offers general interest day tours and guided walks in his local area, the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. James’ time in the polar regions has brought into sharp focus the threats from climate change. As a result, he carbon offsets all his own tours and expedition cruise bookings.
