Iceland Trip 2024 - 30 October - 2 November 2024

The geography department are running a trip to Iceland for geography students in Year 11 from Wednesday 30th October - Saturday 2nd November 2024, which is in the half term holiday. We believe that this trip will be an experience of a lifetime and offer pupils the opportunity to see an area of the world that they may not otherwise visit.

The trip is full board, and the activities will include:

  • Secret Lagoon
  • Thingvellir National Park
  • Impressive waterfalls: Gullfoss, Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss
  • Volcanoes: Hekla and Eyjafjallajokull
  • Black sand beaches formed of lava
  • Glaciers

Whilst in Iceland we will be accompanied by an experienced tour guide. The tour company that we will be travelling with is Rayburn Tours with whom WMAT have run several successful trips in the past. The approximate total cost, depending on final numbers, will be £1300, these figures are based on 45 students and may be reduced if we secure more numbers. The cost includes flights, accommodation, entry to the attractions and meals. Pupils need to provide their own spending money. Further details and an information evening will follow once the trip is confirmed.
