The Grand Canyon USA

The great Canyons of the USA is a wonderful sight to witness. The 40 layered mighty canyons running along 277 miles in length have rocks as old as two billion years.

Mount Everest Nepal

The highest mountain of the world commonly known as Mount Everest which is located on the Nepal-China border is locally called Sagarmatha and Chomolungma by Nepali and Tibetians respectively. Thousands of visitors throng at its base camp in Nepal every year. You can explore this 5,380 meters high altitude base camp by lazily lying on your bed by clicking on this link.

Hang Sơn Đoòng, Vietnam

Hang Son Doong Vietnam, Virtual Tour

A very remote and well-preserved area in central Vietnam hosts the world’s largest cave. The cave was first discovered by a local man named Ho Khanh in 1991. He tried to relocate it but could not. After several years in 2009, it was explored by scientists for the first time. The marvelous place has been digitally preserved in the form of the Hang Sơn Đoòng 360 project by National Geographic. You can now trek through light-filled caverns exploring its geology including a 70 meter-tall stalagmite, flora, and fauna.

Giants Causeway, Northern Ireland

Giants Causeway Ireland, Virtual Tour

The coastline of Northern Ireland is crammed with more than 40,000 unique interlocking hexagonal basalt structures. People believe that the unusual rock formations erected by giants in their causeway path to Scotland. Scientists, on the other hand, believe that they are the result of lava erupting and cooling into the sea some 50-60 million years ago. Go through the National Trust series of virtual tours for Aird Snout views.

The Northern Lights, Finland

Northern Lights Finland, Virtual Tour

The astounding phenomenon of Aurora Borealis is something every travel enthusiast would want to experience it under the naked sky. The reason behind colorful phenomena is the interaction of Earth’s magnetic field with the electrically charged particles of the sun. Countries residing in the North like Russia, Iceland, Canada, or Scandinavian countries are lucky to enjoy the live view. While the remaining world, for now, can take a virtual tour starting from Icehotel in Abisko national park, northern Sweden. The Norwegian project, Lights over Lapland, is a short 5minutes journey through a series of 360-degree videos.

    Wow, such beautiful locations, thanks for sharing the option to travel to them virtually! They’re all sights I’d love to visit/see in real life one day too!

    Oooh your photo at the top got me thinking, this would be a fantastic way to use VR! It would be such a cool way to really “see’ these locations while we’re in lockdown. I did have a peek with my computer, but it’s not quite as cool when you’re dragging the screen around… being able to turn your head to look in each direction would be amaaazing.

    Such an interesting idea, thank you for sharing. I can see this being especially good for kids stuck at home without school!

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:14 pm

      You are very right. It is actually helping and informative for the kids as well. Everyone should show it to their children.

    Exactly what I need right now. I have been to Bryce Canyon many times and Ireland was on my list for this year. Well, hopefully next year…

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:16 pm

      Yeahh you just need a determined mind, you can still visit all these wonderful places in the coming months.

  • May 26, 2020 at 3:48 am

    Nice information. I didn’t know about so many virtual tours.

  • May 26, 2020 at 7:10 am

    Amazing natural wonders for a trip real and virtual, both, best is Mt, Everest in Nepal.

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:17 pm

      Yeah, having the virtual tour of MOUNT EVEREST is a must, i think.

  • May 26, 2020 at 7:31 am

    Wow, this is such a useful list – I am going to check them all out as they are places I would love to visit in real life, but to even see them virtually would be amazing. This is such a great idea!

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:18 pm

      Thank you Sarah for liking the idea and the post.

  • May 26, 2020 at 7:44 am

    Nice list ! These are all in my bucket list and I love to visit them in person some day ! But for now, I could settle with these virtual tours. Love the Son Doong cave one ! The sounds make it just abit more real ! I’m amazed at how big and deep the cave really is ! This virtual tour really does put it into perspective ! Thanks for sharing ! =)

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:19 pm

      You are most welcome Jeremy. I think all of us should enjoy these virtual tours till the travel restrictions are lifted.

  • May 26, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Thank goodness for technology! These virtual experiences are really cool, and I could see myself spending hours ‘hiking’ through these sites. But, on the other hand it makes me want to get out the house and explore even more! I am going to send your post to my gramma. She loves exploring nature, but recently had a hip replacement so isn’t going on adventures right now. She will really enjoy!

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:20 pm

      That’s a perfect idea Courtney. Prayers for a swift recovery for your grandmom.

  • May 26, 2020 at 2:18 pm

    Such a great way to explore places I haven’t seen and plan for future travel. Grand Canyon and Vietnam are on my list.

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:21 pm

      Yup Tania. They are on my list too. Can’t wait to visit them!!

  • May 26, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    This is so awesome! We’ll going to virtually tour the Grand Canyon right now!! 🙂 It’s just crazy that we didn’t even go there when we had that epic road trip in the Southwest and West coast. Can’t even remember why we didn’t!

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:09 pm

      It’s totally okay. We learn through trial and experiences. You can enjoy visiting it via this virtual tour for the time being. 😊

  • May 27, 2020 at 2:04 am

    I think if I’m going to tour ‘virtually’, then VR is the only way to go to get the feeling of almost being there.

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:10 pm

      Exactly. Its a nice option so far.

  • May 29, 2020 at 6:13 am

    amazing post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I’ve really enjoyed browsing your blog post. After all I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

    • May 31, 2020 at 4:11 pm

      Exactly. Its a nice option so far.

  • May 31, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Yes absolutely, I would love to visit all these places too once normalcy returns!!

  • June 28, 2020 at 10:40 am

    Thank you for this!!! It makes me think there is hope to one day soon visit these amazing places!!!

  • June 28, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    I think the idea of virtual tours is brilliant and it’s not just for the period of time that travel has halted because of the virus. It’s also for people who can travel any time for various reasons. I would love to see the Northern Lights over Finland!
