During the Easter holidays from the 10th-14th April, the Geography department at Seaford Head Community College visited Iceland. Here are some of the highlights of the trip............................... We met at school on Tuesday and everyone was very excited. We did experience a little turbulence on the flight, many of our students would say it was a bit like a roller coaster! :/ On arrival at Keflavik airport we were met by a local representative. We visited the Blue Lagoon, formed by the runoff from the geothermal power station of Svartsengi. It was really refreshing to bathe in the outdoor lagoon amid clouds of vapour with mass covered lava formations in the distance. Afterwards we settled into the hotel and enjoyed an evening meal. Our meals at the hotel were all very tasty, with cereal, toast, fruit and continental breakfast on offer each morning and a buffet which offered plenty of salad and hot food each evening.
