Iceland Geography Field Trip October 2019
Featured Article / Posted on 8 Nov

Over half term 30 students from years 11-13 visited Iceland for 5 days on a Geography field trip.

We travelled around the South East of Iceland visiting numerous geographical sights including waterfalls of Skogarfoss, Gullfoss and the Solheimjokull glacier as well as a visit to the erupting Geysir of Strokkur!

One of the highlights of the trip was a morning monster truck drive along the Thorsmork valley exploring the area affected the most by the Eyjafjallajokull eruption of 2010.

Students also had the opportunity to swim in a natural geothermally heated swimming pool and also explore lava tunnels created by past volcanic eruptions.

Everyone had a great time and we were even treated to a showing of the Northern lights on the last night in Reykjavik.
