Showing gallery: Science and Geography Trip to Iceland - July 2015

Science and Geography in  Iceland

This year the Science and Geography departments were fortunate to be able to offer students in years 10-12 the opportunity to explore one of the most unique landscapes in the world. Iceland sits upon a constructive plate boundary close to the Arctic Circle so spectacular volcanic scenery blends with stunning glacial landscapes.

The 5 days were jammed packed with activities including visiting the Blue Lagoon, Geothermal and Hydroelectric power plants, several glaciers and spectacular waterfalls, investigating jokulhaup outwash plains, taking in fumaroles, geysers and solfataras as well as exploring how humans have made use of this stunning and challenging landscape. A fantastic trip.
