Best Student Travel Destinations for Science and Adventure

September 18, 2023

In honor of Earth Day we hope you get your students outside for some incredible group travel adventures. Listed below are some of the best student tour destinations we offer on our Gtrek: Science and Adventure educational program!

Costa Rica

Obviously Costa Rica is one of our best and favorites group travel destinations. It’s safe, close to home (but also international), and super fun for exploring science related curriculum in the rainforest, cloud forests, and more. Hydrology, biology, and ornithology are a few of the many sciences we focus on in hotspots like Monteverde, Tamarindo, and Arenal (to only name a few).

Yellowstone National Park

The first national park is rich in outdoor adventure and science-related opportunities. Groups can do some wildlife watching in the Hayden Valley – an area known for abundant wildlife including grizzly and black bear, wolves, elk, bison, and moose. Our guided hikes allow students to uncover the biological and geologic mysteries of the area. Although the idea is to get students outside and off their screens, the giant IMAX experience at the West Yellowstone Wolf and Discovery Center is pretty incredible and totally worth checking out.

Grand Canyon National Park
