Discover Mallorca

Mallorca School Trips

Set in the heart of the Mediterranean, Mallorca’s abundance of picture-postcard fishing villages, hidden azure reservoirs, dramatic mountainscapes, pine-clad forests and cosmopolitan towns are simply calling out to be explored.

Discover the diverse geography of the island; take part in geography fieldwork such as rural changes, the gentrification of the capital, Palma and the inevitable impact of mass tourism on the island.

As well as fieldwork, students will also have the opportunity to experience a number of other activities. Go mountain trekking along the UNESCO World Heritage listed Tramuntana mountains, breathe in the sea air and try your hand at a number of watersports or take a trip on an antique wooden train from Palma to the quaint old town of Soller to immerse yourself in some of Mallorca’s rich history and culture.

As pioneers in leading school geography trips, you can be sure that our travel specialists have first-hand experience on the region, are up to date with the curriculum and understand what it takes to make school trip memories last a lifetime. This means we are able to customise your school trip to ensure your learning objectives are met, so you can create an itinerary which is educationally relevant, enriching and engaging for your students.

About Mallorca

The largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Mallorca, also known as Majorca, is accessible in under 2½ hours from many of the UK’s major airports.

Mallorca’s cosmopolitan capital, Palma, is arguably most famous for its dramatic Gothic cathedral, Le Seu – one of the tallest cathedrals in the world. Built on the site of a former mosque, the cathedral dominates the near-distant skyline, seemingly rising out from the sea if standing on the shoreline. Discover some of the city’s stunning architecture in the old Arab quarter, sit back and watch the world pass you by in one of the many street-side cafés or soak up the Spanish sun at one of the city’s warm, sandy beaches. Take the famous antique wooden train from Palma to Soller for more quintessential Mallorcan architecture with sea and mountain views.

For the more adventurous, the Caves of Drach house one of the largest underground lakes in the world. Hop aboard a boat tour to see the renowned Baths of Diana and Lake Martel beneath a breath-taking series of stalactites and stalagmites.

For those in search of the history of Mallorca,  we recommend a trip to the Monastery at Valldemossa, a village located in the Serra de Tramuntana, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and area of great geological and cultural significance. Equally, a hike through one of Mallorca’s many natural parks will be sure to help you get to know the island and it’s abundance of geography better.
