Discover Iceland’s dramatic landscapes

Home to epic geysers, mesmerising glaciers and dramatic volcanic landscapes, Iceland’s tectonic activity has formed some of the world’s most fascinating geography. With such a diverse range of geographical features, Iceland offers students a unique opportunity to study many natural formations in one place. Pupils can also experience Iceland’s geothermal activity by taking a dip in the Blue Lagoon, and if they’re lucky, may even get the chance to witness this spellbinding Aurora Borealis. 

Explore Europe’s volcanic regions

Iceland isn’t Europe’s only volcanic region, with Italy, Barcelona and the Canary Islands boasting some of the continent’s most impressive volcanoes. The Bay of Naples not only offers students the chance to study the infamous Mount Vesuvius, but educational tours also explore the preserved ancient towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum – an unforgettable experience for any budding geographers.

One of Europe’s highest volcanoes, Mount Etna in Sicily is also a fascinating case study, offering spectacular views of the Mediterranean coastline. The region is also home to the stunning Alcantara Gorge, a great opportunity to learn about the effects of volcanic lava on the natural landscape.

Uncover the UK’s geographical treasures

As well the wide range of destinations for geography trips abroad, there are great options for geography field trips in here in the UK. Snowdonia is the perfect geography field trip destination for those looking to stay a little closer to home. Journey to the top of Wales’ highest mountain to see incredible panoramic views over Snowdonia and study the vast landscape.

Geography school tours to the Eden Project in Cornwall also offer an experience unlike any other here in the UK. Explore the Mediterranean and Rainforest Biomes before getting involved in the Core building’s multiple interactive displays.
