Iceland Field Trip 2014
The geography department is offering year ten students the chance of a field study visit to Iceland between Monday 7th July and Friday 11th July, 2014. This will be an amazing opportunity to experience the very unique geography of this fascinating country, including volcanic and glaciated scenery. Your child would be able to watch an erupting geyser and study volcanic craters and tectonic faults. There will also be an opportunity to investigate the effects of glaciers on the landscape and to experience glacier walking. We will visit Heimaey to see how this island and its settlement has been affected by and adapted to recent volcanic activity. There will also be the chance to swim in The Blue Lagoon (a geothermally heated pool), to go white water rafting and to visit the capital, Reykjavik. More >>>
