The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

On the 13th-16th July 2017 27 students had the fantastic opportunity to spend 4 days in Iceland.



On the first day students had the opportunity to swim in The Blue Lagoon- a geothermal spa which is one of Iceland's biggest attractions!
We also visited Reykjavik the capital city of Iceland. Day 2 took us on an exploration of Thingvellir National Park where students saw where the Eurasian and North American plates are literally tearing the country apart through its many earthquakes!



Gulfoss waterfall and the Strokur Geyser were two fantastic highlights, followed by the opportunity to experience the earthquake simulator- giving students the chance to feel what a magnitude 6 earthquake would be like! To finish off the group enjoyed relaxing in the hotel's outdoor hot tubs!


Day 3 took us to some of Icelands incredible waterfalls (seen in the video), the foot of one of Iceland's major glaciers, past many of Iceland's volcanoes including the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano which closed much of Europes air space in 2010!  



Finishing off at the Black Sand beach of Iceland's South Shore. A highlight for many students here was to see the Puffins as they flew from their nests high up in the cliffs. The trip was jam packed with truely breathtaking experiences which will never be forgotten. Special thanks to parents who helped to fund this once in a life time opportunity!
