Iceland trip!

Iceland provided a fantastic destination for a memorable Easter holiday trip for the Year 10 geographers. Taking care to give the erupting volcano a wide berth, we marvelled at the spectacular tectonic landscapes as we descended into an extinct volcanic crater at Kerið, watched the Strokkur geyser erupt and walked through the rift valley between the Eurasian and North American plates at Þingvellir. Exploring the south coast of the country, we visited the stunning waterfalls at Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, before donning our crampons and picking up our ice axes to trek on the awe-inspiring Solheimajokull glacier. We enjoyed a day of sightseeing in Reykjavik, including a memorable visit to an indoor lava display. With such a busy schedule, we took full advantage of the opportunities to relax by swimming in geothermal pools and watching the northern lights dancing over our hotel in the evenings.
