This research is based on the low motivation of students to study geography. Students assume that learning geography is just rote. Teachers also have a big role to design a fun geography instructional. The purpose of this research is 1) to know the problems of teachers in creating a fun geography instructional, 2) to know the problems of teachers in optimizing the utilization of the environment as a source of learning geography. The research method used is descriptive qualitative. Researchers distributed questionnaires to geography teachers in Surakarta. The result of the questionnaire is used as the basis for the discussion to deepen the findings. The results of the research are as follows: 1) Geography teachers are generally trapped in the teaching routine according to the schedule determined without thinking about the variation of the learning model, so the students experience boredom when the learning process, 2) Geography teachers generally do not understand the concept of the environment as a source learning, so that the natural environment around the school is not utilized in geography learning, either as a subject matter or as a place of learning.
