Trip to Iceland

Over the Easter break, a group of year 10 and 11 GCSE geography students travelled to Iceland to explore its beautiful landscapes. We swam in the secret lagoon, a pristine blue water geothermal pool heated by magma, and visited the Geysir Geothermal Area, where spouting hot water reached spectacular heights of 10m! Our group also visited the historic town of Hveragerði, nestled on a 5000-year-old lava field with scenic views of breathtaking mountains. At the black sand Reynishverfi Beach, we watched enormous waves roll in and out before trekking to the Sólheimajökull Glacier. We also visited numerous well-known waterfalls, including the Skógafoss Waterfall, which had a double rainbow emerging at the base. On the last day, we ventured around the town of Reykjavik shopping for souvenirs and savouring Icelandic cuisine.
