Field trip to Iceland, Spring 2020
Following the success of previous visits, a field trip to Iceland is being organised for Spring 2020. The trip will appeal particularly to senior students taking Geography at GCSE or A level, but is open to any pupil (Year 9 and above) with an interest in this extreme environment.
Iceland is one of the few countries in the world which is still taking shape and changing before our very eyes. Situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge the island offers spectacular scenery from volcanic peaks, geysers and dramatic waterfalls to massive glaciers and black beaches.
A visit to Iceland is truly a once in a lifetime experience for any young person, the opportunity to witness some of the most astounding geographical features in the world is one not to be missed.
The trip will depart on 28th March, returning on 1st April 2020 and will include:
- Excursions to Gullfoss Geyser and Pingvellier National Park
- Sightseeing around Reykjavik
- Swimming in a geothermally heated pool
- Visit to a geothermal power station
- Exploration of a glacier and a volcanic crater.
