Iceland Trip 2017

On Saturday 11th February 2017, we were fortunate enough to set off on a trip to Southern Iceland, made possible by the schools 20 year-long partnership with Discover the World Education. One aspect of Icelandic culture that we were able to immerse ourselves in immediately was their frequent trips to geothermally heated pools and baths (although we're not sure the locals were as accepting of 37 teenagers crashing their peaceful post-work soak). It wasn't all relaxation though, as we took on a jam packed itinerary in our 6 night stay. Highlights of the trip included visiting one of the 20 wonders of the world, Gulfoss waterfall, driving in a monster truck to enter the Langjokull Glacier, passing behind Seljalandsfoss waterfall and walking the Solheimjokull glacier with crampons and ice axes. This trip was enjoyed by geography students and non-geography students alike. We'd like to give a warm thank you to Mr Rentell, Miss Hamilton and Mr Harbord for making the trip a huge success, and a special thanks to Mr Porter who made a guest appearance as our tour guide for the week.
