GeoNatour was born in a fragile and unstable economic and finantial environment among a group of voracious and young spirit entrepreneurs that decided to take on, a dynamic company that meets the current needs in the field of geosciences in Portugal.
The primary objective is to boost the valorization of the geological and natural heritage of Portugal, which is currently ruled by a widespread lack of knowledge.
This Portuguese geological heritage is not only a financial gain, but also a timeless social wealth, and is therefore an integral part of the history of GeoNatour.
Composed by a multidisciplinary group with deep knowledge to the new technologies, Geonatour bets on innovative forms of dissemination, encompassing areas of geology, nature and ecological tourism allied to new technologies, such as a smartphone application and a dedicated website. With a specialized academic training in Geosciences, the GeoNatour team is also committed to provide external services to public and private companies, namely in environmental impact studies, cartography and hydrogeology, but focusing its efforts on studying the geotechnical characterization of soils, using less evasive methods, through knowledge and experience in geophysics, to determine the layers and geological formations present in depth.
