Expeditions for Schools

We help arrange hundreds of student group trips each year

Expeditions for school groups, like any student trip abroad, are about exploring and developing a better understanding of the world we live in. School expeditions are an exciting opportunity for students to observe how the topics they learn about in the classroom, play out in real life. While expeditions should be exciting and fun, they should also challenge pupils to adapt to unfamiliar surroundings, and take home new skills and ideas.

We have helped arrange school group expeditions across the world, in subjects including marine ecology, physical geography, religious studies, tourism, education initiatives and community development, as well as physical challenges like jungle treks and polar expeditions.

The expedition specialists we feature on this page have many years of experience helping school groups to organise and undertake truly unique and exciting far flung expeditions. While each company has its own individual areas of specialism, they all excel at building exciting and challenging itineraries that promote fun, while maintaining a high regard for both their environmental impact and the safety school group.

To find out more about how we can help you organise the perfect expedition for your school group, click into any of the expeditions below to view sample itineraries, videos, special offers and contact details, or if you would like more ideas, just complete our short purple form.

Tailor make your trip!

Let us find the perfect group expedition provider for your school.
