We have a range of specialised Geography school trips providing students the opportunity to learn and discover more about the world we live in and the environmental issues facing us in the future.
The Bay of Naples is home to Mount Vesuvius and its volcanic geology is responsible for some of the most spectacular scenery in Italy whereas the Mediterranean Island of Sicily offers unspoilt sea-beds combined with fertile volcanic slopes, and Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano. Northern Catalonia contains a wealth of spectacular natural parks, wetlands, fluvial environments, limestone landscapes and coastal environments and makes a great trip with the addition of Barcelona as a fascinating case study in urban growth and development.
Iceland, with its natural and unique landscape lends itself perfectly to a geography field trip with is diverse volcanic landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls and the world heritage site of Þingvellir. A school geography trip of a lifetime is to America's West Coast offering the Grand Canyon, Yosemite's waterfalls, glacial peaks and ancient sequoias, San Francisco's built on the San Andreas Fault, and Las Vegas, a neon oasis in the heart of the Nevada Desert.
Closer to home The West Country’s Jurassic Coast a perfect outdoor classroom for field studies in a range of topics from landforms, coastal processes, erosion, geology and rocks, to sustainable tourism management, and the Eden Project offers a diverse tropical paradise where tourism and ecology coexist side by side.
For a Human Geography school trip, we recommend London and New York. London is an excellent choice if you are on a restricted budget; the impact of the 2012 Olympic Games in the East End makes it a great place to investigate the impact of the event and urban regeneration. Other top visits include the London Wetland Centre, The Thames Barrier and The Olympic Park which has an outdoor classroom with workshops about urban sustainability. For that extra special trip, New York, with its scarce availability of land being a major contributing factor to making it one of the most densely populated cities in the United States, is an ideal place to study environmental issues and look at how humans adapt and transform their landscape as well as visiting top attractions such as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.
