World Challenge Went to Iceland

Twelve Year 10 students embarked on a trip of a lifetime to Iceland at the end of the summer term with World Challenge.  The students had to raise a large proportion of the cost for this amazing trip. They did so through a variety of fundraising events, and part time jobs.  The reward was the opportunity to work through the stunning scenery of Iceland via a 50 mile trip along the Laugavegur trail. This route is ranked 3rd in the worlds top 20 hikes by National Geographic.  It offers the pure wilderness experience of Iceland, with volcanic landscapes that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien before he penned The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, there are steaming volcanic vents, expanses of lichen-covered volcanic rocks, glaciers, beautiful lakes, waterfalls and river crossings.  The students were self-sufficient during their expedition, erecting their own tents and cooking their food on trangias.  The trip was then spectacularly rounded off with a few hours in Blue Lagoon, one of the wonders of the world.
