Volcano Live, airing this week on BBC2, has given a unique glimpse into what your pupils can hope to see on a school trip to Iceland.
This fantastic four part series has seen footage screened of live volcanic explosions, explanations of how volcano’s work and why they occur, and accounts from some of the world’s leading volcano experts and information about volcano's around the world, including Iceland. Presenters Kate Humble and Iain Stewart present live from Kilauea on Big Island in Hawaii, showing how this archipelago has been created from volcanic activity. They also give a glimpse into other volcanic activity around the world, including Iceland.
Whilst Hawaii may be out of budget for most pupils, a school trip to Iceland is now more affordable than ever before due to new low-cost air seats, a strong exchange rates and a commitment by Adaptable Travel to make school trips more affordable.
Adaptable Travel cannot promise your pupils will experience a live volcanic explosion on a school trip to Iceland, but a geography field trip to Iceland will allow your students to explore the land of fire and ice, and examine in detail a recent volcanic eruption from, by exploring Eyjafjallajokul volcano which erupted in 2010. The area surrounding Eyjafjallajokul still bears the scars of that eruption, with piles of ash covering the surrounding area. This fascinating volcano, combined with glaciers, waterfalls, tectonic plates and more make Iceland the perfect geography school trip destination.
