The perfect school tripRequest information
A class trip to Iceland is both educational and exciting. The class can experience the power and effect of nature. Iceland lies between two tectonic plates which can be seen in multiple places on the island. On this volcanic island, the students can feel the warmth from the volcanoes through hot springs, geysers, and boiling mud. Iceland is a great country to visit for school groups where you can combine learning opportunities and fun.
After a good night's sleep at the hotel in Reykjavik, your driver-guide will pick you up and take you on an unforgettable tour of the Golden Circle. You start Thingvellir National Park. The historical site of the oldest still existing democratic parliament in the world, founded in 930, and where the two tectonic plates meet. At Thingvellir, it is clearly visible where these two tectonic plates are pulling apart up to 2cm per year. This is a very visual example of how the earth is changing. From Thingvellir, the tour continues to the famous "Golden Waterfall" Gullfoss. A very impressive two-step waterfall where the natural surroundings allow you to view the waterfall from up close. Just a few minutes away is the impressive Geysir. There you can witness the power of the earth with Iceland's most active geyser, Strokkur, which blows hot water 20-30 meters up in the air every 5-7 minutes.
On your way back to Reykjavik it is possible to stop at Skálholt, a cultural and political center that has been episcopal since 1056, or you can stop by the geothermal power plant, Hellisheiðavirkjun, that produces heat and electricity for Iceland. This is a perfect visit for those who want to learn about the production of renewable energy.
In the evening you will enjoy dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel, the students will experience the Icelandic nature of Reykjanes Peninsula. The guided tour takes you along the coast surrounded by lava fields and volcanic landscape. The area is rich in birdlife and flora. Stop at Krýsuvík geothermal area with hot springs and bubbling mud. On the way back you will pass Álftanes and Bessastaðir, the presidential residence. In the evening you will enjoy dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel, the coach will take you back to Keflavik International Airport in time for your departure flight. Depending on the flight schedule, you could enjoy a swim in one of Reykjavik‘s many geothermal pools or take a dip in the milky blue waters of the Blue Lagoon before your departure.
After an early breakfast at the hotel, you will leave at 08:30 for a full day excursion of the South Shore. With your private coach and guide the tour will take you through a beautiful landscape with a view of some of the country´s most majestic mountains such as Iceland‘s most active volcanoes Hekla and Eyjafjallajökull glacier-volcano. You will drive through the historic Viking area of Njáls-Saga. Visit Seljalandsfoss Waterfall which you can walk behind for a unique view of the waterfall. Up next is Iceland‘s highest waterfall, Skógafoss that falls from 60 meters high and is 25 meters wide. We can also stop at Dyrhólaey peninsula where you can see the black sand beaches and the impressive Reynisdrangar rocks emerging from the ocean. On this tour, we can also take a view of Sólheimajökull Glacier. Here it is also possible to add a glacier hike for an additional price. Enjoy dinner at the hotel.
