Trip open to all years.
Following the success of last year’s trip, the Geography department is delighted to offer another 5 day school trip to Iceland to study and experience the impact that plate tectonics has on this unique country. This will provide the opportunity to visit the “Land of Fire and Ice”. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit Iceland, a country where two of the earth’s tectonic plates meet. We will see active volcanoes; observe active geysers with areas of steam vents, hot springs and beautiful turquoise blues; visit Þingvellir National Park, a World Heritage site; swim in the hot springs of The Secret Lagoon and take a ferry to the island of Heimaey with its active volcano and museum. The tour will be organised with Rayburn Travel which is fully bonded with ABTA. They led and organised our successful trip last year.
The trip will run in the week of the May half-term holidays 2019 (25th – 29th May), and is now open to all students except those sitting public exams next summer. Flights will be with Iceland Air from Manchester Airport and arrangements will be made for transport to and from the airport. Accommodation will be at the Skalinn Centre and students will be accommodated in multi-bedded rooms with shared facilities.
