TPS Trip To Iceland


July 2014 saw TPS geographers embark on their most exciting, most adventurous, most active and most relevant geographical expedition to date. July 2014 saw TPS geographers travel to any geographer’s dream destination: Iceland.


This was the first time that students had travelled north of the UK, but even without the guaranteed sun and 25+ degree heat of the trip to Sorrento, it still managed to be the best trip to date. Some of the highlights included actually walking between two separating tectonic plates; all students challenging trip leader Sam Graham to a stone skimming competition at Reynisfjara beach; trekking across a ‘dirty’ (geographical term) glacier; viewing some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world and getting as many people as possible in the cold glacial water as the group rafted down the Hvita river.


The trip was an absolute success and rated 5 star by the students. It really did have everything a geographer could ask for.  


Head of Geography, Sam Graham, said: “The students loved it. The staff loved it. Fortunately for the staff though, we get to do it all over again with our new batch of geographical explorers in 2015!”
