Covid-19 may have put travel on hold, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop exploring. Until it’s safe and responsible to venture out once more, join us in seeing the world with these virtual holiday suggestions.


Hike The Great Wall Of China

Combine virtual travel with virtual exercise on a livestream hike along the Great Wall of China in Beijing. No trainers (or indeed physical exertion) are required on this stretch that covers the six and a half miles between Jinshanling and Simatai. A history guide will accompany you as you enjoy the sweeping views, lack of tourists, and the fact that your feet don’t hurt.


See Polar Bears In Canada

Wrap up warm and head for this Canadian park which is home to arctic foxes, wolves, caribou, and one of the world’s largest polar bear maternity dens. For an icy adventure, view the livestream from Cape Churchill to catch a glimpse of these incredible animals digging their dens, play-fighting, and flirting in the hope of finding a suitable mate.


Discover Machu Picchu In Peru

You don’t have to trek the Inca Trail for days to reach Machu Picchu, Peru’s famous ancient citadel built in the 15th century. Instead, discover these incredible ruins hike-free on a 360-degree virtual tour with You Visit. Prepare for stunning mountain views, llama, and alpaca sightings, and roam freely as you gain a great insight into how the Incas used to live.


Marvel At Art In Italy

The Sistine Chapel in Italy’s Vatican City is one of the country’s most famous landmarks, and this virtual tour provides art and culture fans to experience this incredible attraction without the crowds. Step inside here, where you can zoom in and out of the artwork including Michaelangelo’s renowned ceiling. It may even inspire you to pick up a paintbrush…


Sample Sumo Wrestling And Sushi In Japan

We’ve missed the spring cherry blossom season, and the Olympics is on hold, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the wonders of Japan from afar. This 360-degree film from the Japan National Tourism Organisation whisks you through bamboo forests, treats you to sushi, and shows you sumo wrestlers in action.


Spy On Elephants And Zebra In Kenya

Bring Laikipia County, Kenya to you by logging on here and watching the action at an African waterhole. Prepare to see elephants, hippos, wildebeest, zebra and buffalo wallowing and washing before your eyes. When visiting in person, this is also a great destination for filling up on culture; the area is also home to many tribal people including the Samburu, Kikuyu, and Boran so well worth putting on your bucket list.


Explore The Pyramids In Egypt

Swap sand for your sofa and step back in time as you head to the pyramids of Giza in Egypt. Constructed around 4,500 years ago as grand tombs for the pharaohs, head here for your chance to discover the site, scout out walking routes and see the structures from near and far. Don’t miss two of the largest pyramids ever built – the Great Pyramid and the Pyramid of Khafre.


Dance With The Northern Lights In Canada

In the absence of an actual Arctic adventure, Polar Bears International are streaming the night sky from the upper reaches of Manitoba, Canada, and you can catch it here while camping out on your couch. We recommend cozying up with a Hot Chocolate and pretending you’re on an expedition on the luxurious Silver Explorer while at it.
