Action-packed Icelandic adventure

A Level geographers visited Iceland on a five day, action-packed adventure. From relaxing in the 37 degree Blue Lagoon, to donning crampons and heading up Sólheimajökull glacier, the full exposure to the landscape was exciting and brilliant. ‘Best trip ever’ was the call from the bus on the last day, after a busy week which included seeing the Northern Lights. AS students explored elements of coasts, rivers and cold environments, whilst A2 looked more into living and adjusting to a hazardous environment. The prospect of getting just 30 minutes warning prior to an eruption of one of the many Icelandic volcanoes was unnerving enough, but one of the group stood on the crater edge of Eyjafjallajökull volcano the day before it erupted in 2010 – so with the experience fresh in their minds, it made for a dynamic experience.
