A school trip to Iceland is the ultimate destination for a geography trip, because it offers so many incredible geological features and natural phenomena, all within in a relatively small area. Your group will have the opportunity to explore one of the youngest countries on Earth, with its magnificent volcanoes, impressive glaciers and spectacular waterfalls.
Walk between tectonic plates in Thingvellir National Park. And watch the spectacular show as geysers such as Strokkur launch superheated water and steam high into the air. If you’re lucky, you might even have the unforgettable experience of seeing the Northern Lights dance across the night sky.
Most school geography groups choose to base themselves in the world’s northernmost capital, Reykjavik, which is within easy reach of all the country’s geographical and geological attractions.
