School Trips to Iceland

If you are looking for your next geography school trip, why not consider Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice for your next school trip, with bespoke packages from Adaptable Travel.

Located on the mid-Atlantic ridge at the meeting point of the Eurasian and North American plates, Iceland provides a window into divergent plate tectonics and it’s associated geological processes and landforms. Also, its northern position and geography means that 11% of the land is covered by glaciers lending to the study of glacial processes and landforms along with case studies of eruption-induced glacial flooding.

When planning your next geography trip with Adaptable, you will work closely with our resident geography expert Julie Webb (BSc Hons Geography), to develop your perfect geography itinerary. Contact Adaptable Travel today to start working with Julie to plan your school group’s once in a lifetime experience to Iceland – the Land of Fire and Ice.

Romsey GB
This is our third year with Adaptable Travel and it was another very successful trip. We had an amazing time.

We saw the Northern Lights, the students were so excited and enamoured with Blue Lagoon and all the other amazing tourist sites we went to. The Glacier Hike was tough yet awe inspiring too.

Our itinerary was tight and I would in future ensure there was a little bit less rushing around, we had two pupils who found it a really demanding trip and perhaps in future I will ensure that Gatwick Flights; Geographically these are more suitable for our needs are obtained.

All pupils had a wonderful time as did the staff and would like to thank our amazing tour guide Gudlaug Jonsdottir for her constant support for us when we were there.
