If you’re following the coasts option (e.g. AQA 3.1.3) then including the Snæfellsnes peninsular is a must. With its high energy southern coastal section with virtually all the features required by the syllabus, and its low energy, depositional coastline along the northern section. Students will foster an informed appreciation of the beauty and diversity of coasts as they walk along specific sections. Comparing the effect of the north and southern types of coasts highlights their impact on human habitats.

If you’re following the glacial option, then you have a choice of areas in which to inform the student’s understanding. For glacial erosion features, the Snæfellsnes peninsular has some of the best and easiest seen. The glacier or ice-cap here is a high level one, but it can be reached by 4x4s followed by a snowcat to take you to the top of the ice cap. If glacier walking is needed then the very popular Solheimajokull in the south is best, which also has an impressive outwash plain and pro-glacial lake – although these days it is very crowded. An alternative is to go snowshoeing on snowfields amongst explosion craters.

If you’re following the tectonic processes and hazards option, then Iceland provides more case study examples than any other accessible country to the UK. From volcanic museums/ centres in the West and South, glacial outbursts from volcanic activity in the South and South East, to being able to spend a day on Heimaey climbing a recent volcano and seeing its effects on the local town. (This isn’t easily accessible during winter months). This is apart from the tectonic rifting seen in the South West, North and on the Golden Circle. If you can afford it, then going to the north provides some fantastic examples of craters, recent lava and the impact on communities.
