Catalonia, Spain

Geography Trips for Schools to
Catalonia, Spain

The Costa Brava’s picturesque landscape is brimming with sandy beaches, rocky headlands, unspoiled coves and a collection of enchanting islands – all yearning to be explored.

This varied and extensive coastline is home to the vibrant city of Barcelona, attractive tourist resorts and traditional fishing villages. With as much charm as there is geographical insight – think coastal landscapes, volcanic landscapes and fluvial environments – it’s the perfect destination for younger students that’s not too unfamiliar.

We base our groups in resorts along the coast, just north of Barcelona, meaning you’ll have easy access to the Costa Brava, Barcelona and surrounding inland areas, like the volcanic Garrotxa National Park and the rugged yet stunning multi-peaked Montserrat. Throw in some Mediterranean sun and typical ‘fiesta’ vibes, and you’re set to go.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are you responsible for?

    The DfE’s guidance for safe travel highlights the need for all those involved with the organisation and running of a tour to work together as a team. This is our aim at Rayburn Tours, to work together with our party leaders to ensure our groups' safety and peace of mind.

  • What should be included in my risk assessment?

    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions. Specific requirements are available from your Local Authority.
  • Are all of your coaches audited?

    UK coaches: Yes, all of our UK coach companies are audited by our in-house team. Copies of which can be made available to you.

We request that an audit is completed by the foreign coach company which includes confirmation of the following: they will comply with all national, local and other laws, rules and codes of practice, and that all services contracted shall be performed with all due skill, care and diligence The vehicle is fully insured for the duration of the tour.

  • Do you provide risk assessments for the visits you offer?

    You can download our Generic Risk Management Handbook which will help you complete your risk assessment for your school or Local Authority. The aim of the handbook is to provide all tour leaders with supportive suggestions to help raise awareness to risk, suggest control measures to help mitigate the risk and manage risk pro-actively. For further assistance, please speak to a member of our team who will be happy to help.
