Geography Activity trips to France and the Basque Country
Inhabitants in the ocean
Why the Basque region?
The Basque region stretches over both northern Spain and southern France and is the perfect destination for our activities trip. San Sebastian’s Ondarreta beach was voted in 2018 by TripAdvisor as number one in the world. The region is ideal for water sports and a plethora of other land activities in the surrounding areas.
‘Get your adrenaline pumping!’
Our geography activities trip combines thrilling outdoor adventures and a chance to learn about the geography of the surrounding areas; within this journey, students will focus on topics such as differing landscapes and natural habitats. Release your adrenaline whilst kayaking and at the same time having the opportunity to learn about the surrounding water landforms or admire the Basque scenery and abundance of wildlife on offer. There is a good reason as to why this area is commonly referred to by experts as taking a hike through the ‘Amazon of Europe.’
Spend a day out of the sun in Cite d’lOcean, an amazing museum dedicated to the world’s oceans, full of interactive exhibitions and 4D cinemas which are guaranteed to take your breath away.
