15 – 19 April 2020

Following our extremely successful Geography field trip to Iceland in 2016 and 2018, we are planning to take a school party to Iceland in the Easter Holidays in 2020 15/04/2020 (Wed) - 19/04/2020 (Sun). This will be an educational visit, which will form part of our enrichment programme. We regard it as an excellent opportunity for our students to experience life in a very different Physical Geography environment to the UK and hope that the challenges that the trip provides will spur them on to considerable achievements. The trip has initially been offered to all Geographers who will be in Years 9-11 during Easter 2020. After that it will be opened up to other subjects.

The approximate price of the trip is £1,040 (this could change slightly due to flights). This price includes return airfare, taxes, insurance, food (half-board basis) during our time in Iceland, hotel accommodation, as well as travel by coach throughout the tour. Included in the price are all entrance fees, tickets and equipment required for all the various trips including:-

Reykjanes Peninsula Day, Golden Circle Day, Swimming at The Secret Lagoon, Langjokull Glacier - Full Day Excursion to the Ice Caves, South Shore Day, Visit to Hellisheidi Power Plant, Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull and Visit to Lava Centre.

The tour is provided by NST tour operators who are recommended by the Geographical Association. For further details please see Mrs Evans or your Geography Teacher for a letter: to be returned along with a deposit by the 22nd February 2019. Places fill up quickly so please return your forms asap. Please contact sarah.evans@lythamhigh.lancs.sch.uk for more details or if you have any questions.
