Iceland is one of the most popular destinations for educational groups travelling from the UK. It is a living classroom for Geography and Geology lessons and, within a few busy days, students can enhance their understanding of plate tectonics and coastal, fluvial and glacial processes by visiting textbook examples of a wide variety of landscapes.
Iceland isn’t only about physical geography, however. It lends itself very well to topics in human geography – such as tourism management – and to a range of fieldwork activities. Geography and Geology combine well with other subjects such as History, STEM or Photography. With changes to the Geography curriculum in the UK on the horizon, we look forward to hearing how we can best meet your needs. Please share your ideas with us, and let us build them into your programme.
We provide help and advice from the moment the idea for a trip is formulated. Our experience in planning and leading overseas residential educational tours and in-depth knowledge of Iceland, mean we can tailor our itineraries to meet the requirements of each group, whether it’s your first visit or you are keen to put a new twist on a trip you’ve done before. You might be looking to explore new locations, visit at a different time of year or include fresh areas of study.
For schools seeking an emphasis on enrichment through a trip to Iceland, there are many ways to achieve this. Our tour guides always cover far more than simply Geography, explaining, for example, the history, population and economy of the country. Our wide range of enrichment activities offers opportunities for students to engage with Icelandic culture and adventure in a variety of ways.
Although most student travellers are between 14 and 17 years old, Iceland is a great location for educational visits for both younger and older pupils. Please ask about our itineraries for other age groups and, should you feel it might be difficult to gather together enough people for a trip, do enquire about our package for small groups.
