School Trips to Iceland

School trips to Iceland offer students the opportunity to see a landscape that is so new and so different to any they will have seen here in the UK.

Ideal for geography and science school trips, Iceland is an unforgettable land that will leave your students feeling excited about the world around them and the need to protect it.

Why visit Iceland?

See geography in action

Walk between tectonic plates, explore a glacier and watch geysers erupting – Iceland is the ultimate destination for a geography school trip.

The opportunity to see so many geographical features and concepts jumping out of the textbooks and coming to life in front of their eyes is something your students will never forget.

Not only will they better understand the topics they’re studying, but they’ll also return home with a greater understanding of why geography is such an important subject, and how it can help us to better understand the world around us.

Bring science to life

Scientists too will love the opportunity to see and learn more about geological activity, including earthquakes, volcanoes and geysers on an Iceland school trip.

And Iceland offers one of the best opportunities to see the Aurora Borealis – although we can’t guarantee you’ll see the real thing, even if the weather is unkind you can learn more about the phenomenon at Reykjavik’s excellent Northern Lights Centre.

Plus, did you know that Neil Armstrong twice travelled to Iceland’s remote lave fields because this landscape was the closest thing on Earth to the lunar landscape?

Experience the rich Icelandic culture

Although it has its roots in Nordic culture, Icelandic culture is unique and one that your students will love the opportunity to explore.

Always a hit with students is the opportunity to take part in the Icelandic ritual of bathing in hot springs.

And make sure you take some time to enjoy some traditional Icelandic cuisine during your trip – skyr is always a popular, healthy choice!

A school trip to Reykjavik offers students the unmissable opportunity to see geography in action in the land of fire and ice!

Reykjavik school trips are most popular among geography school groups because of the many wonderful experiences available here - from walking on glaciers and exploring behind waterfalls to seeing geysers erupt and bathing in geothermal waters.
