North America School Trips & Projects

 

Quiet campsites along the Colorado River

Lying entirely in the Northern Hemisphere; Canada, the United States and Alaska boast some of the world's most famous natural wonders which are as diverse in their geography, flora and fauna as they are in their beauty. From the Canadian and American Rockies, Banff, Jasper and Yosemite National Parks, the Grand Canyon, and Monument and Death Valleys to the Mississippi River, Niagara Falls, the fjords and glaciers of Alaska and the volcanoes and coastlines of Hawaii, preserving the environment is of utmost importance.

Aiming to minimise our impact on the natural environment, we practice the '7 Principals of Leave No Trace', in addition to supporting local economies by employing guides and support staff from local communities. Our Animal Welfare Code of Conduct and Child Welfare Code of Conduct ensure the well-being of animals and children encountered on our school group adventures.



Our educational travel experts are ready to help you tailor an itinerary or service learning project in North America to suit your school’s needs and budget. Contact us today to receive a free consultation.

Hotels

In cities and large towns you will be accommodated in good 3 to 4 star properties that are generally centrally located, atmospheric, and reliable and where we have seen a good track record with traveller satisfaction.

Lodges

We use a variety of quality lodges across North America. They are not luxury lodges but what they do offer is very comfortable accommodation which is well maintained and with many facilities. Generally, the trip notes that we have prepared for each trip will give you details of the types of properties we use on any one itinerary.

Bed & breakfasts

Selected for their desirable locations and local charm, B&Bs and guesthouses offer tasty meals, comfortable rooms, and warm, friendly welcomes at the end of each day.

Camping

On many of our trips we will erect campsites in wilderness terrains. These feature two person tents, a dining tent and a portable toilet tent when permanent amenities are not available or their presence is ecologically unsound. The spacious tents, most of which you can stand up in, are well ventilated with insect nets.

Mountain huts

On backcountry trails, mountaineering routes and glacier traverses we stay in remote mountain huts. You can expect these to be basic but comfortable and from time to time the sleeping arrangements are dormitory style – in keeping with the true mountain spirit!
