The visit by 19 Framlingham College sixth formers was part of their AS and A2 courses, enhancing their understanding of physical processes as well as their grasp of how communities respond to challenges.

On a trip packed with a wide range of experiences, the group saw Seljalandsfoss waterfall and walked behind the plunge pool, explored the Reykjanes Peninsula, the south western tip of Iceland, where the huge waves which buffet the coast have resulted in stunning headlands and beaches.

The lava field that they stood on was still active and this was evident at the boiling pools and mud pots.

Pupils also saw how Icelanders have adapted to these conditions and are using the fishing industry to develop economically.
