Norway School Trips

Without exaggeration Norway boasts some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in the world. Breathtaking waterfalls, glacier formed fjords, impressive mountains, crystal clear lakes, lush green valleys and colbalt blue skies make Norway an incredibly photogenic country and a superb candidate for an educational visit focusing on geography and geology.

Introduction

Study Topics - Physcal Geography | Human Geography

From its raw and rugged coastline which stretches beyond the Arctic Circle, to its expansive countryside of fells, rolling hills, valleys and fertile farmlands, Norway delivers at every level.

The Hordaland region with its numerous islands and fjords is a treasure trove of human achievement, biodiversity and sustainability. Around 20,000 years ago the land was a barren ice tundra and as the climate changed flora and fauna began to thrive. Our suggested itinerary combines adventure activities with geographical wonders delivering a full, hands-on tour experience.

This stunning region of Fjord Norway is the focus for our latest study aid:  Hardanger Tourism (suitable for use with KS3, GCSE and A-level students) - access this free online classroom resource here »
