Nineteen Year 10 and 11 girls spent the first few days of the holidays on a Geography Trip to Iceland. Within minutes of landing, they were soaking in the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon with mud masks on… Other experiences were walking up to – and even behind – spectacular waterfalls, walking along the rift between the American and European plate, boiling eggs in hot springs and waiting for the next geyser eruption, and climbing over the hexagonal basalt column cliffs on a black volcanic sand beach.  They saw how the volcanic activity that has both created Iceland and caused disruptive events also powers the whole island with clean, green energy.  Finally, just before coming home, they trekked through the lava fields on the unique shaggy haired Icelandic horses.
