We also provide field study sheets for different subjects and the chance to take part in exclusive educational challenges and you will have direct liaison with your own educational travel specialist.
We have teamed up with Mission:Explore, a group of geography educators, to create special 'missions' for you and your students to use before, during and after your study trip to Iceland.
Targeted mainly at KS3 students, these missions will also help inspire your GCSE & A-Level students to create their own geography and has been commended in the 2013 Scottish Association of Geography Teachers Awards.
Iceland is a living laboratory where nature’s land forming processes are so easy to see.
The Golden Circle comprises three natural wonders. Thingvellir National Park offers stunning views of the Mid Atlantic Ridge where the divergent North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet and is home to Iceland’s largest lake – Thingvallavatn. At Geysir, witness Strokkur, erupting every 5 minutes or so up to 30 metres. Gullfoss is a two-tier, glacier fed waterfall flowing into a rift valley. The ‘greenhouse’ village of Hveragerdi demonstrates hot spring ecology.
Visit the Westman Islands and the site of the 1973 eruption that created the Eldfell crater and caused ash and lava to engulf one third of the houses on the island of Heimaey. The South Shore boasts two of Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls, Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss along with the natural rock arch, black sand beaches and basalt columns at Dyrholaey and the glacier Solheimajokull.
Iceland’s southeast is home to the beautiful Skaftafell National Park which lies below Europe’s largest glacier and is responsible for Jokulsarlon, a breathtaking pro–glacial lagoon dotted with icebergs of all shapes and sizes.
The diverse and unique landscape combinations make this an ideal destination for educational visits, with a large amount of 'awe & wonder' thrown into the mix!
