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.

01

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.


02

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.
