Student Trips to Iceland
If you’re looking for an educational visit where Mother Nature’s at its spectacular and awe-inspiring best, Iceland should be at the top of your wish-list. This country might be small, at about half the size of the UK, but it’s brimming with must-see visits; from ice-peaked volcanoes and glaciers to glorious geysers and steaming geo-pools, there’s a wealth of must-see attractions in the land of fire and ice.
The power of nature will enthral your students when the skies come to life at night, with the natural enigma that is the Northern Lights, otherwise known as Aurora Borealis. This elusive and unpredictable attraction will leave your students in wonder, when the brilliantly dazzling display lights up the sky.
No visit to Iceland would be complete without a visit to Strokkur Geysir, after which all geysers are named. This active hot spring shoots water up to 30 metres in the air and is a favourite stop-off point for anyone travelling along the Golden Circle. Another popular attraction is the impressive Gulfoss Waterfall where river from Hvita river plummets 32 metres, in two stages, down into the rugged canyon below.
In Iceland’s capital city Reykjavík, there’s a selection of eateries, museums and the stunning Sun Voyager steel sculpture. It’s the ideal place to stay to experience Icelandic culture and learn more about the country’s fascinating history.
