Virtual travel experiences are growing immensely popular as we find ourselves stuck at home and unable to engage in the vacation plans we had planned. As a result, there are quite a few virtual travel experiences that are truly wonderful and offers you a small taste in what you can do when you are able to travel again.
- The Sistine Chapel
Explore the Sistine Chapel and its intricately designed and painted ceilings and walls. The clear resolution only allows for the experience to be elevated to the next wall. This virtual tour will take your breath away.
Honestly, the virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is worth it. Even better, it is free.
- The Seven New Wonders of the World
These are 360 video tours of the seven new wonders of the world. They take you to the breathtaking heights of ancient ruins to the well-worn road of the Great Wall of China. Although there is not much room to click around and explore, the moments you do get to spin around in a 360 circle is amazing. The facts that they show are also quite intriguing and make up for a good “lesson”.
My favorite might be the Colosseum because you travel into the ruins and get to look down into the amphitheater as the Romans used to do.
- Iceland’s Best: 360 Tour
Beautiful landscapes and multiple places to go… what’s there not to like? I personally enjoy the Snæfellsnes peninsula tour because experiencing the snow without the cold, bodies of water without the wet, and generally peaceful atmosphere appeals to me. Honestly, though, you’re exploring the best of Iceland through an eagle’s eye 360 view. It’s beautiful!
- The Buckingham Palace
While there are only three rooms available for a tour, they are magnificent and beautiful. From the Grand Staircase to the White Drawing Room, you can appreciate the color scheme as well as the intricately designed ornaments decorating the room. There are pieces of history scattered through out, pointed out, each by a little “i” that gives you a bit more information on the history.
- The Louvre
Make your way through different rooms in the Parsian museum. You take in beautiful pieces of artwork from different time periods that will make you gasp and wish that you were seeing them in person. Again, it’s free!
- The Carlsbad Caverns
If you are someone who enjoys hiking and nature, this is the perfect place for you. You will be able to explore the 119 caves in this place without any of the tiredness, and revel in the sight of the Big Room, the biggest cave chamber in North America. It’s like you are actually in the cave, but actually sitting on your sofa at home.
- Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park
This virtual tour is perfect for those who enjoy history and hiking but without the tiredness. The park, in Australia, is traditionally owned by the Anangu, and pays its respects to the Anangu with traditional stories and songs that are sure to perk your ears up. The scenery is also quite unique – a bit dry, a bit green, and a bit “cave-like”. I personally enjoyed this tour, from the woman’s soothing voice to the little snippets of information and history of the Anangu.
- Yosemite National Park
Beautiful scenery? Lovely greenery? Heights? This is the place for the person who wishes to escape into nature and explore the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park without any of the walking. Besides, you get to enjoy the sounds of birds as you click and scroll through the park.
