Geography Trips for Schools to

An island of rocky shores, volcanic landscapes and pure geographical drama, Tenerife is an adventure playground for geographers.

Look past its reputation as a popular beach resort and you’ll discover some of the island’s most treasured geographical gems. A well-known volcanic hotspot, Tenerife’s geographical history is as explosive as its landscape. From raw volcanic terrain to rugged coastal cliffs, you’ll explore some of the most diverse and unique natural wonders Spain and the Canary Islands have to offer. You only have to look at the mighty Mount Teide to get a feel for the volcanic forces at work on this spectacular island.

And because almost half of the island is a protected natural area, you'll see unspoilt landscapes as nature intended. A true world of contrasts, where the weather is warm and welcoming all year round, a school geography trip to Tenerife is pure paradise.

So whether you hike to great heights on Mount Teide or venture beneath the surface on a caving expedition, you’ll be able to explore this majestic island, quite literally, from top to bottom.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What do I need to do to ensure safe travel for my group?

    Information is available from your Local Authority on what is expected from party leaders on a trip. In addition, we are happy to assist you in ensuring that you have all of the necessary information to successfully assess risks and ensure a safe trip for you and your group. Further advice and information can be found on the OEAP National Guidance website.

  • 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.

  • Is all of your accommodation audited in advance?

    Yes, all of our accommodation is audited prior to us offering it to a group. The criterion of these audits is governed by the School Travel Forum (STF). It is important to remember that each country is governed by their own standards and laws and these may differ from UK law. However, we require our accommodation to meet our standards as a minimum. We work with the hotels and agents to endeavour to ensure that our standards are met.
  • What does our insurance cover us for?

    Our insurance providers offer comprehensive cover to our groups for the duration of their tour and is tailored specifically for schools, with specialist insurance policies for individual tour types. As with any insurance cover, it is vital that you read through the terms and conditions and that you declare any relevant information as requested. Please see our insurance page for further information and to see what is covered. For groups opting to take their own insurance, we highly recommend that you read all inclusions and exclusions prior to departure.
