July 2021
Throughout Shetland

This annual festival covers all aspects of Shetland’s unique natural heritage, and with everything from guided walks to family days out and evening talks there's something for everyone. From flowers and fossils, to seabirds and seals, there's plenty to inform, entertain and excite as you explore the unique natural heritage of the Shetland Islands.

Since 2010, the festival has been run in partnership with ‘European Geoparks Week’, during which the 75 European Geoparks (including the six other British members of the Network) actively work together to conserve and promote geological heritage through education and geo-tourism.

Geology-themed events, led by Shetland UNESCO Global Geopark, will help you discover some of the most diverse and dramatic geology in the UK, spanning almost three billion years.
