Geysers, volcanoes & waterfalls

This year’s Geography trip to Iceland was in danger of cancellation due to the very volcanic activity the boys were to study. Fortunately it went ahead and 44 boys in Years 7, 8 and 9, accompanied by five members of staff, enjoyed an unforgettable expedition.

“The trip was very memorable. The boys were able to see firsthand some of the most amazing landscapes on earth. The best moments of the trip for the boys were floating in the Blue Lagoon eating ice cream, trekking up and down numerous volcanoes, and applying mudpacks for their healing properties,” said Geography teacher Geraldine Booth.

""The aim of the trip was to learn about the features associated with volcanic activity, particularly at a moving plate margin. The five-day tour included a visit to Þingvellir in southwestern Iceland, the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge separating the Eurasian Plate and North American Plate.
