Discover Ltd has been running school field trips and educational tours for over thirty-five years, offering students and teachers wonderful study tour experiences in spectacular locations. We own two bases. In Morocco, our base in the Toubkal National Park enables us to organise bespoke study tours around the whole of Morocco. The Eagle’s Nest in the Cévennes National Park in France gives access to the Mediterranean coast, the volcanic and glacial landscapes of the Massif Central and the incredible diversity of the Causse-Cévennes UNESCO World Heritage site.
What people have said
Why do I take our IGCSE and IBDP groups to the Eagle’s Nest? The scenery, the ‘different’ environment and culture, the food, the facilities and the bespoke service we get from Discover. All true, but the single biggest reason and the key is the quality of the teaching—the best field centre tutoring I have ever experienced.”
Peter Price, Charterhouse
From the bustling, colourful and aromatic souks of Marrakech to the vast, undulating rocky desert and the majestic snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas, Morocco is a geographer’s paradise.
These contrasting environments offer a huge range of opportunities for field studies and individual investigations. For all that the country has to offer, the lasting and most powerful memory is of its people; proud, welcoming and unfailingly courteous. In a world torn apart by posturing, hatred and miss-trust, students can learn so much from the kindness of the Moroccan people; their inclusivity, warmth and hospitality.
For so many reasons, Morocco should be high on the list of field study destinations.”

For 2017, we will be operating out of the ski station Mont Lozère, France. Mont Lozère occupies a stunning geographical position in a landscape rich in Mediterranean and alpine flora and fauna. Based in the Causse-Cévennes UNESCO World Heritage Site, we are in easy striking distance of the Tarn Gorge and its spectacular limestone scenery, the glacial and volcanic landscapes of the Massif Central, the Mediterranean coast, with its tourist resorts and the Camargue Regional Nature Reserve.
Discover can take you from the summit of Jbel Toubkal, the highest mountain in North Africa, to the edge of the vast Sahara Desert. We can guide you through the bewildering variety of Marrakech’s souk and let you witness the living theatre of its enormous square, the infamous Jemaa el Fna. Students and teachers alike return from Morocco with eyes opened and lives enriched by contact with the Moroccan people.
