Fantastic news for school geography trips, as British Airways announces a new route from London Heathrow to Reykjavik.
Flights on this route will operate from 25th October 2015, served by three flights per week (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays).
The aircraft operating the flight carries just 230 passengers and so availability is expected to be extremely limited. Therefore, we strongly advise all groups for whom London Heathrow is the preferred airport to enquire as early as possible.
Reykjavik is one of our favourite destinations and, as the gateway to the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’, offers fantastic opportunities for school geography trips. Your group could witness geography in action here, by walking between tectonic plates; visiting active volcanoes; and watching spectacular geysers spew hot water and steam into the air.
Students can also discover how Icelanders have harnessed the natural geothermal power to provide themselves with sustainable energy, before relaxing in the warm waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. Other unforgettable experiences include watching the Northern Lights dance across the sky, or taking a very special trip out to sea, to see the mighty whales.
