Following the recent observation that the Ricci flow and the infinite distance swampland conjecture are closely related to each other, we will investigate in this paper geometric flow equations for AdS space-time geometries. First, we consider the so called Yamabe and Ricci-Bourguignon flows and we show that these two flows - in contrast to the Ricci flow - lead to infinite distance fixed points for product spaces likeAdSdxSp, whereAdSddenotes d-dimensional AdS space andSpcorresponds to a p-dimensional sphere. Second, we consider black hole geometries in AdS space time geometries and their behaviour under the Yamabe and Ricci-Bourguignon flows. Specifically we will examine if and how the AdS black holes will undergo a Hawking-Page phase transition under the Ricci flow, the Yamabe flow and under the general Ricci-Bourguignon flow.
