What are your aims / objectives?
Educating students and groups through travel is our main aim. We believe education should not be restricted to the boundaries of a classroom. Travel opens up the mind, inspires, educates, excites and brings subjects to life!
Best piece of advice for travellers?
Whatever your age, keep learning! Education expands much further than the school gates! Speak to locals, step out of your comfort zone, get to grips with the local culture and make sure you pack in as much as you can when you’re away, that way the learning opportunities will never end!

The list of benefits is endless! At STA Travel Education we believe group trips are the best way to inspire students and create unforgettable memories along the way! It provides some great bonding opportunities and learning way beyond any textbook!
Top place to visit in 2017?
Iceland should be on every bucket list! Students from all walks of curriculum can enjoy the ‘land of Fire and Ice.’ Hit the highland roads and you’ll have access to the more ‘untouched’ parts of the country. The best sights were created by mother nature herself: the midnight sun, deep ice caves, the Aurora Borealis, icy glaciers and bubbling mud pools! An adventure waiting to happen!
