School Trips to Iceland

Although schools may opt to visit Iceland for a number of different curriculum subjects, the vast majority of you will be travelling to this incredible country to study some aspect of its geography and geology. Iceland is a product of the Mid Atlantic Ridge, the boundary between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. And it is the mix of Arctic ice and hot geothermal conditions that make Iceland such a fascinating place to study on a school field trip.

So what makes school tours to Iceland so good?

Iceland has it all - active volcanoes, regularly gushing geysers, thermal pools, icy glaciers and huge waterfalls. Geography students will find a land of wonders, a land of ice and fire, and the perfect place to witness many of the Earth's natural processes in action.

Popular destinations for schools include the Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, the Great Geysir and the glacier at Solheimajokull.



Key Curriculum Topics


Geography, Geology, Science, Environment, Natural Hazards.

Iceland school trip ideas


iceland blue lagoon

Blue Lagoon
this has to be the most popular destination for any visitor to Iceland, and is a great addition to any school trip to Iceland. The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal pool, just a short trip from the capital, Reykjavik. The warm, mineral rich water is fed into the lagoon for bathers to enjoy.


iceland geothermal

Thingvellir National Park
on the surface, this looks like any other national park, but as well as being located on the mid Atlantic ridge, where the Earth's crust is pulling in two different directions, Thingvellir is also the location of Iceland's historic parliament, which dates back to 930AD.


iceland geothermal energy

Geothermal Energy
the way the Icelandic people have made use of their natural resources, including the abundant heat just below the surface of their land, is well worth studying for any school pupil. A school trip to Iceland would be incomplete without study of this fascinating natural resource.


iceland volcano

Eldfell Volcano
Iceland emerged from the ocean as a result of volcanic activity, and there is still plenty for students to study, including the impressive cone of Eldfell, just to the south of the Iceland mainland.


iceland reynisdrangar

Reynisdrangar Cliffs
There are plenty of local legends about what these impressive sea stacks represent and where they came from, but any sensible geology teacher will assure their students that these basalt columns are almost certainly natural(!)


iceland glacier

Myrdalsjokull Glacier
As well as the impressive heat from the lava just beneath the surface, Iceland's northerly latitude ensures plenty of ice. School trips have to take a visit to this stunning glacier; a powerful reminder of the force of nature.


iceland norther lights

The Northern Lights
If you are able to take your school trip to Iceland between September and April, your students may get an added bonus in the form of the Northern Lights. Particles from the sun interact with the Earth's magnetosphere and the result is nothing short of breath-taking!
