Geography Pupils Visit Iceland

Posted: 9th November 2017

Year 10 and 11 Geography pupils enjoyed a busy expedition to Iceland during half term, which incorporated visits to a range of human and physical geography locations.  These included the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, famous for its eruption in 2010,  the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall, and the rapidly melting Sólheimajökull glacier, which appears to be a clear indicator of climate change.  Other highlights of the trip included visits to the fantastic geysers at Geysir, and the geothermal springs at the Secret Lagoon near Flúðir, where pupils bathed in the medicinal and cleansing water.  They also visited Þingvellir, the location of the world’s first parliament, as well as the location of the mid atlantic rift between the Eurasian and North American plates.
