Anette shows you the location of the Krafla Power Station in Iceland. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking out over the Krafla Power Station in Northern Iceland. Image: LEARNZ.
The turbine hall in the Krafla Power Station. This is where the thermal energy from steam is transformed into electricity. Image: LEARNZ.
Steam roars out of a vent in an old geothermal well at the Krafla Geothermal Field. Image: LEARNZ.
Veti Crater is close to the Krafla Power Station and well worth a visit. Image: LEARNZ.
Marlène and Shelley enjoy a look around Veti Crater at Krafla. Image: LEARNZ.
Maintenance work on one of the geothermal well heads at Krafla Power Station. Image: LEARNZ.
This display shows a typical drill head used to bore geothermal wells. Image: LEARNZ.
You watched the green glow of the northern lights from a geothermal hot tub on the last night of the field trip. Image: LEARNZ.
Lake Mývatn has lots of mini craters created by steam explosions when lava flowed over the lake. Image: LEARNZ.
This volcanic arch is part of Dimmuborgir, or the Black Fortress, a lava field in Mývatn. Image: LEARNZ.
You discovered a sheep in one of the lava caves in Dimmuborgir. Image: LEARNZ.
You hiked up Hverfyall, which is a tuff cone in Mývatn. Image: LEARNZ.
The ambassadors reach the top of Hverfyall crater. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking down into the crater of Hverfyall. How did this crater form? Image: LEARNZ.
Ben, the ambassadors and Shelley look for the Krafla super volcano. You can see the Krafla caldera in shadow in the background. Image: LEARNZ.
This is the Hverir geothermal area south of Krafla. Image: LEARNZ.
This is a fumarole created when water seeps down through cracks in the earth to reach ground warmed by magma. It then rises back up as steam. Image: LEARNZ.
You could have watched the boiling mud pools for hours! How are mud pools formed. Image: LEARNZ
Looking up at the magma plume under Iceland at the Lava Volcano Exhibition. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors hear about Thor's experience of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. Image: LEARNZ.
This photo shows the ash cloud from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. Image: Gestastofan Visitor Centre.
Ólafur owns a farm under Eyjafjallajökull and he shows you some ash from the eruption. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Ben collect some ash from the Eyjafjallajökull 2010 eruption. Image: LEARNZ.
You visited Skógafoss, a 60 metre high waterfall in southern Iceland on your trip north. Image: LEARNZ.
This river feeds the Skógafoss waterfall and it was brown with the heavy rain. Image: LEARNZ.
You spotted many waterfalls on your way north. Why do you think Iceland has so many waterfalls? Image: LEARNZ.
During your nine hour drive north you visited one of many glaciers that extend down to sea level on the eastern coast of Iceland. Image: LEARNZ.
Icebergs floated on the terminal lake of Fjarllsarlon glacier. It was a shame not have more time to explore! Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors board the ferry destined for the island of Heimaey. Image: LEARNZ.
The volcanic cliffs of Heimaey tower over the harbour entrance. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking out over the town of Heimaey from the lava flows that threatened the village in the 1973 eruption. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking up towards Eldfell volcano on the left. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Ben make it to the top of Eldfell Volcano on Heimaey Island. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking towards the village of Heimaey which was threatened by lava flows and buried in ash during the 1973 eruption of Eldfell. Image: LEARNZ.
This house was buried in ash and pumice during the 1973 eruption. The building has been uncovered and is now part of the Eldheimar Museum. Image: LEARNZ.
Kristín talks to Shelley and the ambassadors about her memories of the 1973 Eldfell eruption on Heimaey. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking across the lava flow that nearly closed Heimaey Harbour. Image: LEARNZ.
This tank was destroyed by lava flow during the 1973 eruption. Image: LEARNZ.
You began the day at the tip of the Reykjanes Peninsula where you could see an old volcanic cone that has been eroded by the sea. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking out over the tip of the Reykjanes Peninsula where the Mid Atlantic Ridge comes ashore. Image: LEARNZ.
Gro finds a mini cave created by the erosion of pillow lava. Image: LEARNZ.
Ben points out a line where magma rose to the surface through a dyke or fissure. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and Gro stand beside the bridge between continents. They are standing on the North American side of the two continents. Image: LEARNZ.
This rift or fissure has been created by the tension of two tectonic plates pulling apart. Image: LEARNZ.
In Iceland you are surrounded by basalt rock. Iceland is made of basalt rock created by a magma plume or hot spot. Image: LEARNZ.
Looking across a row of volcanic vents known as the Stampar Crater Row. Image: LEARNZ.
One of the benefits of having volcanic activity is that you can harness geothermal power. Image: LEARNZ.
Hulda from the Iceland Catastrophe Insurance Company talks to Shelley about how to be more resilient to natural hazards. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors arrive at Dunedin Airport ready to head to Christchurch to begin the long journey to Iceland. Image: LEARNZ.
You crossed the Southern Alps as you headed north west towards Singapore. Image: LEARNZ.
It took hours to cross Australia and most of the land looked flat and barren. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors are happy to be on the final approach into Singapore. Image: LEARNZ.
You could see the sun setting from the airport in Singapore. Image: LEARNZ.
The ambassadors settle in for another long flight from Singapore to Copenhagen. Image: LEARNZ.
It was dark for most of the flight to Copenhagen. In the pale, early morning light you could see a line of twenty wind turbines lined up off the coast of Copenhagen. Image: LEARNZ.
Shelley and the ambassadors celebrate arriving in Iceland after a three hour flight from Copenhagen to Iceland. Image: LEARNZ.
Between the airport and Reykjavik you could see huge lava fields. Can you find out when this lava erupted? Image: LEARNZ.
This sculpture celebrates Iceland's Viking heritage. Image: LEARNZ.
You had some time to wander around parts of Reykyavik and enjoy spectacular sights such as the Hallgrímskirkja church. Image: LEARNZ.
