Sixth Form explore the geographical wonders of Iceland
Our Sixth Form headed off to Iceland over the half term holidays. We enjoyed wonderful weather as we explored some of the natural wonders around Reykjavík. The ‘Mary Ward’ shoes accompanied us on our travels; some highlights included exploring the Blue Lagoon, a natural geothermal spa, climbing onto and along one of Iceland’s largest glaciers (with the help of hired crampons and ice axes!), and visiting the black sand beach at Reynishverfi and the Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss and Gullfoss waterfalls. Sadly we didn’t see the Northern Lights this time, unlike our trip two years ago, but the trip was a fantastic opportunity to experience and learn more about the geographical wonders that Iceland has to offer.
