Educational Tour Co-ordinator

I would recommend one of our Field Studies Guides, the guide will meet the group on arrival at the airport in Iceland and accompany the group throughout the entire duration of the tour. The guides are experts in geography and will ensure the students receive the best learning experience from their trip, the guides offer support to the group. I would strongly recommend suitable clothing, especially waterproofs, there is quite a lot of spray off the waterfalls and on one of the stops the group will have.
