This summer saw the geography department return to Iceland, accompanied by 30 girls from the V and VI. Across our four day visit we saw a multitude of amazing sights, including a number of splendid waterfalls, such as the two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall that drops a total of 32m, spanning the entire width of the Hvita River.
Another popular sight was the infamous Eyjafjallajokull volcano (and much time was passed in attempts to pronounce its name correctly...) We also took on a number of more challenging activities across the trip. Our second day saw us equipped with crampons and ice picks for a chilly walk across a glacier, and as the holiday drew to a close we were bombarded with equipment once again as we snorkelled across the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in almost freezing water, dressed head to toe in dry suits causing us to all vaguely resemble the Michelin man!
