School Trips to Europe

The countries, regions and states that make up the continent of Europe comprise lots of groups of people who over the years have struggled to get along with each other. But these days we are lucky in that we can travel freely, and learn about the languages and cultures of our European neighbours. For an overseas school trip, Europe is easy to get to and has myriad subject study options and potential destinations, and each location is perfectly suited to catering for more than one subject.

What can Europe offer school groups?

If you are near the West coast and plan on heading across to Ireland, the city of Dublin is a real treat and has lots to offer school groups, especially if you are studying its literary heritage, its political and cultural issues or its rich history. How about Italy with its ancient ruins; surely the only place to visit if the history of the Roman Empire is on the agenda. And a great place to learn about the Renaissance through the many art galleries and museums. Or for something a bit different, a journey north to witness the majestic island of Iceland. Many schools are choosing this incredible place to study its unique geography of geothermal pools, geysers and glaciers.

Tailor make your trip!

Let us find the perfect European trip provider for your school.
