New life pushing up through the ash deposits from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano: image by Val Vannet, taken last week

After many years of waiting, it seems like I will finally be going to Iceland later this year.
I will be accompanying teachers on an inspection visit to Iceland in October 2010.

The visit is organised by the Brighton based company TRAVELBOUND

Download an itinerary HERE (PDF download) and I might have the chance to spend a few days with you exploring and curriculum making...
Some of the places that are here are on the lists of places that must be seen when visiting Iceland...
  • Blue Lagoon near Reykjavik
  • Hekla
  • Solheimajokull Glacier trek
  • Kerid Crater and Thingvellir National Park
  • Reykjavik
  • Geysirs and waterfalls
  • Hellishollar
Why not request a copy of the brochure, or visit the Travelbound website to find out more.
If you'd like to come on the inspection visit, the price is £199, and you will need to do the following:

Contact James Walker on: 01273 265 266 for details.

I will be blogging the whole process of preparing for the visit, as well as creating an online home for a range of curriculum making resources. One outcome will be a unit for KS3 with the title (N)ICELAND ICELAND....
Currently exploring the workings of WORDPRESS to create the new blog, which is now available to view (although there's not much there yet) at (N)ICELAND ICELAND.

If you have been to Iceland and would like to contribute to the new blog in any way, please get in touch.
Special thanks to Val Vannet for the use of her excellent images....
