Overseas Geography Fieldtrips

Fieldwork is to geography what strawberries are to cream. Schools and colleges that include a fieldwork element in their geography coursework are far more likely to see a strong improvement in their students’ grades as they get the chance to apply practical first hand analysis to theoretical classroom teaching. Students will also develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of geographical processes, and acquire lots of new skills; both individual and teamwork.

While we are lucky to have many fantastic destinations for our geographical fieldwork studies here at home, taking students beyond the UK opens up far more of the subject, allowing them to experience natural environments that simply do not exist here. We are thinking about places like Iceland where glacial and volcanic activity can be viewed up close. The Bay of Naples where students can study tourism and population. The growth and development of Paris from a small settlement on the Seine to a world city. And the deserts and mountains, the sights and smells, of magical Morocco.

Once you begin to research the range and scope of overseas geography trips, you really are spoilt for choice, though deciding where to go and what aspects of geography to study will be influenced by your classroom subject topics.

Geography fieldtrips are especially suitable for those studying: living with the physical environment, natural hazards, challenges in the human environment, the changing economic world, and the challenges of resource management.

You can be assured that the geography trips we list here are curriculum focused, and operated by specialist companies, who all have years of experience delivering enjoyable and rewarding geography fieldtrips for thousands of UK school pupils.

Challenging and worthwhile volunteering trips in Kenya



Take your students on the trip of a lifetime and immerse them in modern-day Kenya, where they can make a lasting difference at one of the 11 community projects we support in the heart of the Great Rift Valley. They won't want to leave!

Nakuru is Kenya's fourth largest city, and one of real contrasts. Situated in the heart of the stunning Great Rift Valley, it is home to unprecedented economic growth, but many residents still live in extreme poverty. Our trips focus on supporting independently run school projects which have been set up to provide increased access to education for children who may not otherwise attend school, due to lack of funds. The projects receive no government funding, so we provide financial and humanitarian support to support the projects' development. Volunteers can make a tangible difference whilst developing a range of skills, before returning home as more rounded individuals. The projects we work with are run by local people who are passionate about providing opportunities to young people...
