Iceland has long been our most visited destination for geography groups, and whilst things are a little different right now, our years of experience and specialist knowledge haven’t changed. So when you combine Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes with our extensive touring history, you’re guaranteed to travel in the best and safest of hands.

It’s been refreshing to see schools are still as keen as ever to get back out exploring. Iceland pioneered an approach to managing Covid-19 that was both proactive and successful – and we’re proud to say that we’ve taken a similar approach to working with our Icelandic partners. That’s why we’re more than ready to help you get your Iceland touring plans for 2021/2022 underway.

  • Are you taking bookings for Iceland right now and how far ahead should we plan?

    Yes, we are absolutely taking bookings! Due to the bespoke nature of our trips, we always recommend you try planning at least a year ahead. We have already taken many bookings for next year and a good amount of groups are choosing to plan even further ahead for 2022, giving them plenty of time to launch the trips to parents and students. We also anticipate there being a surge in demand for school groups wishing to travel to Iceland. Ultimately, the further you can plan ahead, the better.
