Iceland Trip – July 2017

Three students (Issy Hogarth, Mae Knight and Ben Botham) from Caedmon College Whitby traveled to Iceland for 3 weeks, on expedition with British Exploring. To fund this life changing opportunity they had to raise £1500 using their own initiative. Triathlons, cake sales, coffee mornings and raffles all went towards it. On the 5th of July they landed in Reykjavik to make their 12 hour bus journey deep into North-East Iceland. For three weeks; over three phases and 200km, the young keen explorers trekked up volcanoes, mountains and waterfalls. They had to carry all their own kit, everything they needed was on their backs. They didn’t see civilization for the whole time and all they had was each other for company. It was an amazing trip which these 3 students felt so privileged to have. It has given them confidence, aspirations and dreams for a bright future. They came back a bit smelly but absolutely buzzing and all agreed it has changed their lives.
