Y10-13 students enjoyed the most fantastic few days in Iceland experiencing lots of new things!
The trip started with visiting the bridge between the Continents and Gunnuhver Hot Springs - sulphur, steam, wind and rain.
They had a fantastic day out and about visiting a Secret Lagoon and then went to the stunning Gulfoss waterfall. They also saw a Strokkur geyser in action. The group visited Thingvillir National Park to see where the North American and Eurasian plates are parting and had a stop at the Kerid crater lake - a stunning volcanic crater filled with a frozen lake.
A trip highlight saw students donning crampons and picking up an ice axe for a hike on the Solheimajokull glacier. Out of this world!
They also enjoyed visiting the excellent interactive Lava Centre before heading off to the 65m high waterfall at Seljalandsfoss.
Students spent an afternoon at the black sands of Reynisfjara Beach and then moved onto the 60m high Skogafoss waterfall. Lots of fun was also had as they had a swim in the hotel’s geothermally heated swimming pool as it snowed!!
A day in Rekyjavik was also part of the experience where they visited the Perlan Centre and it’s ice cave. After a look round the city it was off to the Lava Show where they made lava. Stunning. They also visited the Hellisheidi Geothermal power station where they turned carbon into rock.
A brilliant few days for all, making memories to last a lifetime. Click here for photos.
