Imo- soup. ?

Mia-I enjoyed walking on the glacier because I felt like I was in a different planet and the guides were friendly.

Georgie C and Phoebe Wilkins: One of our favourite places we went to in Iceland was to the glaciers where we did a trek and saw a glacial lagoon;, it was a once in a life time experience which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Pippa Jones – I loved everything about Iceland but Vik beach stood out to me. The black sand was so unusual and the waves were huge, but slightly terrifying.

Aisha Warner – Iceland has been a unique experience that will forever be imbedded in my memory, everything about it was phenomenal and nothing like what I have experienced before. I have to say, personally, the northern lights was the most spectacular experience of the trip. Looking up at something with so much magnitude and beauty (as cringe as it might sound) really makes you reflect. It also definitely raised an infinite amount of questions as to how something so stunning can occur so naturally without anything restricting when it can appear, what pattern it created and who sees it. This trip was amazing!

Charlotte Sanders- I really enjoyed the glacier walk as it is an opportunity that is so unforgettable. Just to see the size of the glacier while standing on it was amazing. Overall the trip was incredible!

Phoebe Wildman- I absolutely loved my trip to Iceland as everywhere we went was so amazing, however if I was to pick my favourite memories it would be seeing the northern lights and swimming in the lagoons.

Jasmine Ram – My time in Iceland has been amazing, I have loved seeing such unique landscapes. My favourite was the glacial walk and swimming in lagoons as they were so exciting and different from anything I have ever done before!

Eliza Smale- I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Iceland and it is definitely the best trip I have ever been on! My favourite moments were the glacial walk and the blue lagoon because they were such a unique experience and so different to what I have ever done before!

Freya Spurling – I have had an amazing time in Iceland and it will be an experience I will never forget. If I had to pick a favourite it would be going on the glacial walk as it was a unique experience and also swimming in the blue lagoon as it was fascinating and exciting to see what it was like.

Sophie Chew- this trip to Iceland has been amazing! I’ve enjoyed every part of it, but my favourite part was visiting the glacial lagoon, it was spectacular. I also loved hearing about the trolls that were turned to stone when the sun came up.

Lucy Elvidge- I have really loved my time in Iceland and my favourite part was going on the glacial hike, the view was amazing. I also enjoyed visiting the swimming pools and visiting the blue lagoon which is definitely an experience I will never forget.

Tamsin Ashby – This trip has been one of most memorable because it has meant all of us have been ale to experience life in another country, very different to our lives in England which has been very interesting. My most memorable moment was climbing the glacier which the wonderful guides and learning about how it’s changed and also seeing its beauty with our own eyes! I have as well loved spending time with everyone and making lots of new friends.

Megan Arthur- our trip to Iceland has been an incredible experience that we will never forget. We are so lucky to have been able to come out here and I have genuinely loved every second of it. My most memorable moments were probably climbing the glaciers and visiting the blue lagoon and swimming pools but I have especially enjoyed being able to become closer to people that I wasn’t as close with before.

Sabriyah Afzal- this trip to Iceland has been one of the most stunning and amazing trips I have ever been on. I have really enjoyed every single moment and I am so lucky to be able to experience the wonders of Iceland and amazing places we visited. The most memorable parts of my trip have to be the glacier hike and the blue lagoon, but every single place we visited I will definitely never forget.

Maria Ciprini – Our trip to Iceland has been an incredible experience that I will miss so much. I loved visiting the lagoons and I will never forget that I climbed a glacier. Next time I’m planning on seeing the Northern Lights 🙂

Liv Bellamy – I’ve had so much fun in Iceland with my friends and have had a truly unforgettable week.

Annie Gasiorowski – I have enjoyed Iceland so much. I have loved spending time with my friends and have had incredible and unforgettable experiences. My favourite things we did were the glacial walk and the blue lagoon and I hope to revisit Iceland at some point to explore more.

Rebecca Dunn- Our trip to Iceland has been unforgettable in the way I have experienced so many new things so different to home. In particular the blue lagoon on the last day and the glacial hike. I’m so lucky to have experienced, not only these opportunities but so many more, and one day I hope to return to Iceland with my family.

Martha Geraghty – Our Iceland adventure has been an incredible experience which I will remember forever. Climbing glaciers, exploring waterfalls and relaxing in lagoons and hot tubs – all things I have been lucky enough to enjoy with my friends. I can’t wait to hopefully return to Iceland and continue exploring.

Elsa James – I have enjoyed every moment of my Iceland experience and it is one that I will never forget. My most enjoyable moments have been: swimming in both the blue lagoon and the secret lagoon; exploring the glacier and spending this week with my friends has made it even better!

Mrs Rusholme: I have loved everything, but going underneath the waterfall was something that I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember. It was so refreshing and I didn’t care that I was getting soaked through – I couldn’t stop smiling… I also loved all of the animals – even having my hand inside a calf’s mouth and having the horse at the dairy farm decide that I was its friend (if you noticed a large lump in my suitcase, that’s because I brought him home with me; don’t tell anyone!). I am also so happy to have spent time with such a frabaerar (fabulous in Icelandic) group of students. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you all.

Miss Gilchrist: Wow – what unbelievably varied scenery there is in Iceland! Seeing the lava fields, lagoons and volcanoes were incredible, but my favourite part was definitely the glacier walk. It was so astonishing to be walking in the ice, and my inner film nerd was having a great time knowing that it had been used as the set for Interstellar and Rogue One! But all in all, it was a super trip thanks to you wonderful girls – your cheerfulness, happiness to give things a go and to relinquish your mobile tech! Great stuff, Year 10!

Mr McGrath: What an amazing trip! The group was really fantastic and funny! There are so many highlights to choose from: glacial hike, secret lagoon, amazing waterfalls, horse riding and teaching you lot the Viking clap (Huh!). One of my most standout moments has to be catching glimpse of the Northern Lights. It was a fantastic trip and I am planning on visiting again.

Mr Humphreys – What and experience! From teaching you all the Viking chant to waking you all up at very early hours of the morning(!) it has been a real pleasure to be in your company and see such amazing, unique sights. Thanks for such a wonderful and memorable trip 🙂

Miss Waterhouse – picking just one favourite thing is a real challenge, the whole trip has been an incredible experience! For me it has to be walking across the glacier. Although, the secret lagoon comes a close second. I will, just a little bit, though, miss the bed time wake up and put to bed routines. You guys have been awesome and it’s so lovely to see you out of your comfort zone. Bring on DoE 2017.

Miss Nisbet: Spending 6 nights with 5 inspirational teachers and 49 excitable girls was an absolute pleasure. I particularly enjoyed watching the shock, awe and wonder on everyone’s faces at the beautiful and dramatic scenery, particularly the giggles and selfies on the glacier hike and the beach full of giant icebergs. Some of us even got to have a glacial facial! I have loved driving on the open empty roads, past glaciers, overlooking volcanoes, through the lava fields and huge green mountains covered in waterfalls. I hope to come back again and again, I fear my Icelandic adventure has only just begun- and I expect local soup and home baked bread to be on the menu!
