On this school trip to Iceland your students will learn about volcanoes, geology and wildlife biology found in this endemic habitat.  Iceland is one of the most remarkable landscapes on the planet. This country is a land sculpted by lava and ice, where geysers burst and glaciers gleam and emerald valleys stretch all the way to the ocean. Experience the mighty forces still shaping the landscape as you explore the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in Thingvellir National Park.  Trek across crackling glacial ice, float among blue icebergs in a spectacular glacial lake, and soak in turquoise thermal pools.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive in Keflavik and Volunteer

Arrive in Keflavik and begin your  school tour with a visit to the Perlan, a Reykjavik landmark. This futuristic glass-domed building comprises large circular tanks holding the city’s naturally heated water reserves, above which sits an outdoor viewing platform. If time permits the group will head out for a late afternoon hike.  Volunteer at an eco village helping with an organic garden.

Day 2 – Mid Atlantic Ridge and Geysir

Head to the rift valley at Thingvellir and see the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the divergent North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart by approximately 2.5 cm per year. Look out for ropy lava as you make your way across the rugged landscape. In view will be Iceland’s largest lake, Thingvallavatn. Later in the afternoon the group will visit Geysir, or sometimes referred to as The Great Geysir. This is the first geyser in printed documents and is the one which all others are named. Eruptions at Geysir can hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air.

 Day 3 – Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and Katla Volcano

Visit the black sand beaches and dunes at Vik, the most southerly point of Iceland. See Solheimajokull, one of several glaciers that spill out from the Myrdalsjokull icecap. The glacier has been retreating since the end of the 19th century at a rate of approximately 100m/year. Later this afternoon the group will visit the Seljalandsfoss Waterfall.

Day 4 – Volcanic Veins and Blue Lagoon

This speleology tour takes you to unique locations in some of Iceland’s most spectacular lava tube caves and craters. These beautiful, natural phenomena were created when the surface lava solidified but magma continued to flow in tunnels. You will see natural stalactites and different rock formations making this an experience of majestic and almost indescribable beauty. Later enjoy the Blue Lagoon where you can take a dip in the milky blue geothermal waters off Iceland’s most famous attraction.

 Day 5 – Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Station

Today the group will visit the largest power station of Iceland and the second largest geothermal power station in the world. The geothermal power plant was created to provide electricity to the city of Reykjavik as there is an increasing demand. Through presentations along with multimedia shows, the students will learn about how geothermal energy is a sustainable green energy and could be a global energy source. This afternoon the group will go on a hike and explore more of Iceland’s terrain.

 Day 6 – Head Home

After an exciting and educational trip to Iceland the group will begin the journey home.
