Iceland Trip 2016

On Saturday 13th February 2016, we were fortunate enough to set off on a trip to Southern Iceland, made possible by the schools 19 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 40 teenagers crashing their peaceful post-work soak). It wasn't all relaxation though, as after visiting Seljalandsfoss (one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland), we descended into an epic snowball fight. Highlights of the trip included visiting one of the 20 wonders of the world, Blue Lagoon, waking up at 6am to see the Northern Lights, seeing the Vatnajokull Glacier and walking the Langjokull 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, Ms McGovern and Mr McIsaac-Hall for making the trip a huge success.
