A geography school trip to Iceland will allow your students to witness geography in action, as this geologically young country continues to take shape!

Quite literally a country in the making, Iceland is a spectacular and diverse destination that offers unique opportunities to discover and investigate many of the Earth’s ongoing processes. From hot springs to volcanoes, waterfalls and geysers, Iceland offers an unforgettable experience for those looking to create the perfect school geography trip.

We work with local agent and coach company GT Travel, who assist us with all our coaching needs for our school geography trips to Iceland. And GT Travel’s close association with renowned freelance travel consultant and former geography teacher, Ian K. Hardie, has led to the production of a fantastic range of support materials, which are available to our groups as an optional extra.

Groups will stay in multi-bedded rooms and group leaders in twins. All rooms are spacious, en-suite, and have a refrigerator, telephone, and colour TV. Bedrooms all have WiFi access and are non-smoking.

The breakfast room is located on the ground floor, as are a lounge and a bar for group leaders to relax in. Breakfast is served every day, but the evening meal is taken in a local restaurant.

This fully renovated modern hotel offers a warm and friendly welcome and is within easy reach of Reykjavik city centre.

Groups will stay in multi-bedded rooms and group leaders in twins. All rooms are en-suite with a TV, desk and free WiFi. The hotel is non-smoking throughout.

A buffet breakfast is supplied every morning, and both packed lunches and the evening meal can also be provided on request. Food is served buffet-style in the hotel’s own restaurant and usually includes a range of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as home-baked breads, soups, pasta and other hot dishes.

Husid Guesthouse

This lovely Icelandic guesthouse is located within the Katla Geopark, making it the ideal base from which to explore the geography of Iceland! You'll be surrounded by spectacular glaciers and towering volcanoes, and you'll still just be 90 minutes from the bright lights of Reykjavik.

Your group will stay in dormitory-style accommodation with shared bathroom facilities. There is Wi-Fi access throughout and the guest lounge offers a TV, DVD player and seating area.

You'll have spectacular views of the wild Icelandic countryside from your accommodation and, away from the city, you may even spot the Northern Lights - if you're lucky!
