Have you thought about making your trip to Iceland cross-curricular? Maybe you need to increase the numbers to make the trip viable and more cost effective or justify the educational benefits to the school leadership team. Iceland cross curricular trips are a great option for schools!

Iceland is a fascinating country to visit whatever your area of interest or expertise and has no end of learning opportunities. Iceland isn’t just about Geography – it’s about so much more!

As a humanities trip to Iceland it’s not just a focus on the geography and geology of the island but the history of Viking settlement and their legacy in Iceland today, together with the sagas and folk tales, fuelled by storytelling on long dark winter nights, passed down over the centuries from generation to generation.

The spectacular natural environment provides students with the opportunity to see science in action, be that physics, chemistry, or biology. Understand how life has adapted to the extremes of Iceland, investigate the effects of climate change, contemplate the use of natural resources to produce sustainable energy and bring about food security, find out about innovative carbon reduction techniques, witness chemical changes in the volcanic rock and discover the wonders of the Aurora Borealis. The mind boggles with the opportunities that Iceland presents.

The raw, natural beauty of the Icelandic landscape provides inspiration for artists, designers or photographers and Icelandic creativity is evident in an array of galleries, sculptures, exhibitions and street art.

Iceland may be a geographers’ dream although it has so much more to offer across the wider curriculum for students to explore the world around them in spectacular surroundings.

Why not open up your trip to other subjects in your school and launch cross curricular trip to Iceland. You’ll be providing more students with the opportunity to explore their subject on an international school trip to Iceland.
