Geographers visit Iceland

Eighteen geography students travelled to Iceland over the Easter holidays to discover the incredible geology and geography on offer in this amazing country. Iceland is well known for its changing weather and the group certainly experienced this – snow, torrential rain and sunshine! Bathing in the Blue Lagoon was most definitely a highlight for the students and they used the silica mud on the bottom of the lagoon to cleanse their skin. The geographers visited numerous waterfalls, some with water so pure that the students were able to drink directly from them, and Strokkur geysir mesmerised everyone as it sprayed boiling hot water up to 35 metres into the air every 5 minutes. Iceland has a huge amount to offer and everyone was extremely fortunate to be able to experience so many of its geological wonders.
