It’s easy to lose hope on future travel while in quarantine, but, luckily for us, tourism boards and travel companies around the world have created travel experiences for us to enjoy from the comfort of our home. There are a number of neat virtual escapes that truly make you feel like you’re immersed in the country. Here is a list of four unique trips around the world that we are now lucky enough to take virtually. Happy traveling!
Arctic Adventure in Sweden
Travel and experience Artic Sweden in 360-degree VR video. Virtual travelers will join local expert guides on some of the region’s iconic Arctic experiences. Guests will virtually arrive north of the Arctic Circle into Kiruna. The first stop, ICEHOTEL, where a guide will give a personal tour around four of the jaw-dropping, individually designed and carved ice rooms and explain how it all comes together – from the frozen water in the river flowing beside the hotel, to being transformed into beautiful masterpieces. The tour heads south to Lassbyn to meet local guide and founder of the Aurora Safari Camp. Guests will be taken on a Snowmobile adventure through the stunning Swedish wilderness visiting two frozen lakes and learning about local wildlife and landmarks on the way. The third stop is the Treehotel. Travelers will learn about the history of the hotel including a tour inside four of the seven amazing tree-top hotel rooms. The final stop of the tour takes guests to the wilderness around Kroktask. Here, Yellow Snow Husky tours will teach guests how to harness a team of huskies in preparation for the journey across the frozen landscape, before setting off on a dogsled adventure.
