Geography Trips

Leave the classroom and discover the world through the eyes of a geographer. With so much to explore, see and do, the real question is where to go first?

Whether you decide to travel to Costa Rica or to Italy, Iceland or the Azores, there are a myriad of options available to you with Discover the World Education. Whichever location you choose, a geography field trip will allow your students to gain their first taste of what it means to be a geographer in the outside world, so what are you waiting for?

Why go on a Geography School Trip?

Geography school trips offer teachers and students alike a chance to immerse themselves in their subject matter. Coming face-to-face with the topics which you have covered in the classroom helps students to cement their learning and discover the real-world challenges and implications brought about by the phenomena discussed. Climb volcanoes in Sicily, study rivers in Norway, contribute to sustainability efforts in Costa Rica and witness the effects of climate change in Iceland.

Getting hands on with concepts that are difficult-to-grasp will allow all your students to shine, and inspire their geography learning well into the future. There is nothing like experiencing the theory learnt in the classroom come to life surrounded by peers. Many of our trips will prove to be once in a life time experiences for your students as they explore the world from a whole new point of view.
