The Prestatyn High School 2019 fieldtrip contained twenty-two young geographers and two teachers. Our guest house was surrounded by beautiful scenery, sunsets and, for what is the main purpose of visiting Iceland for many, the northern lights. We spent several jam-packed days travelling across Iceland exploring and putting into context all our knowledge. Our time in Iceland truly inspired us as both young geographers but also as being active citizens. We were taught about different cultures and by Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant on how they produce 100% renewable electricity, in excess. A common feeling among the pupils was not only the cold, but the sense of awe at what beauty natural process can create and how this could be used to benefit a society with such high levels of pollution and disregard for the environment.
Our fieldtrip contained several days of thermals, walking and exploring the geography of Iceland. We visited many fascinating locations such as ‘Bridge Between the Continents’, Secret Lagoon, Thingvellir National Park and Sólheimajökull Glacier. We examined the ever-increasing glacial retreat and walked in the Raufarholshellir Lava Tube. These locations expanded both our knowledge and our perception of geography. We applied what we’ve been learning which created both a sense of understanding and awe at the powerful physical processes in play. This trip allowed us to implement skills as well as learn new ones both as individuals and as a team. We explored Icelandic culture and stayed in a guest house with not only the view of volcanoes but also the northern lights. We tried new dishes such as sun-dried fish. Even though Iceland was cold, and expensive, we will cherish the invaluable experience and the memories from it.
