Geography

Geography, quite simply, is about the world we live in. One of the best ways to study geography therefore, is to leave the classroom to experience everything our world has to offer. Throughout this website you will find curriculum links to our destinations. We have also worked with a number of leading geography teachers and the Geographical Association to bring you a brand new website, discover-geography.co.uk. Completely free for teachers, the website allows you to access and share a variety of classroom and fieldwork resources related to our destinations.

Science & Cross Curricular

Considering the opportunities for cross-curricular study can be particularly helpful when trying to increase numbers on your tour, or gain permission for a trip. We have a range of suggested tours in Iceland and Costa Rica which cater for science school trips. Our Iceland tours include comprehensive biology work booklets, providing students with a variety of exercises linked to your curriculum. The Azores is ideal for biologists, with unique flora and fauna, whilst Italy is perfect for a cross-Humanities study trip – Herculaneum, for example, features 2,000 year old buildings and artefacts preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
