I do confess to start missing travelling and all the jazz that comes with it. I also know that exploring new destinies is no longer an option of leisure at this moment. And I guess it will take some time until things get back on track.
However, it looks like a new way of travelling without leaving home is taking people to several parts of the planet for free from the comfort of your settee. Welcome to the remote tourism era, when we can escape from the lockdown boredom to be entertained for several hours.
There are thousands of museums, galleries and landscapes to be checked online. Join me now on the most interesting virtual tours to have a peep now.
# 1 The Faroe Islands
Welcome to one of the most beautiful destinations on earth. The Faroe Islands has been on my bucket list for ages. That’s not only because there are more sheep than people there. That certainly helps though.
But the truth is this hidden gem of Europe undercover dramatically beautiful landscapes and unique features that always fascinated me. Now, with the complete lockdown, we can only check this place virtually.
The remote tourism project in The Faroe Islands is yet one of the most fascinating things I have ever experience in life.
#2 – Frida Kahlo Museum
Another popular tour that got my eyes straight away was the opportunity of visiting Frida Kahlo’s Museum. The Casa Azul (Blue House) was the place where she was born and where she died. A special location where Frida’s creative mind has flown is located in the oldest and most beautiful area of Mexico City.
Take a digital tour of garden and rooms of Frida’s residence and museum to be enchanted with the beauty of the house and the fascinating life of the most iconic Mexican painter.

#3 – Nasa
Ask any kid out there if they would like to have a mooch around Nasa’s facilities and know more about its Space projects and scientific achievements, and you would be surprised in how many kids would be glad to have this opportunity.
I am not a kid but I’m in too. Check amazing virtual tours on Glenn’s Research to or download the Space Centre Houston app to make the most of your Space studies and tours.
#4- Machu Picchu
One of the World’s Heritage Sites – Machu Picchu is one of the most visited locations in South America. Like any other tourist attraction in the world, Machu Picchu is not receiving people this moment.
However, a wicked digital tour for this Peruvian ancient site is available online. It’s a quite interesting guide tour with plenty of information for those who want to know more about its history.
Besides, the local tourism board already release notes on making ancient and archaeological sites in the country free of admission as soon as the lockdown is over. This way they would start boosting tourism in the country,

#5- Cliff of Moher – Ireland
If we could, we would be planning our trip to Ireland soon. The lockdown has taught you that patience is a virtue. We know it’s time to wait and see how travel will become part of our essentials again at some point in life.
However, you still can visit stunning landscapes without packing for a road trip in the Irish territory. This is the case of this digital tour to the Cliffs of Moher. Visit this stunning stretch of cliffs that are also one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions. But this time, it’s just about you in a quiet digital visit to the breath-taking landscape that needs to be explored once in life. One day, soon.

#6- Ghibli Museum – Japan
Here’s a tour that I would love to do in person. I was so excited about the idea of going to Japan in 2021. Now, it looks like a postponed plan. But visiting the magic world of Hayao Miyazaki would be self-realisation.
If you’re familiar to the Studio Ghibli films, you know its importance to the Anime industry. They are the most delicate and powerful animation films ever produced. It would be just a dream to check Studio Ghibli’s museum in Mitaka, Japan, someday.
But for a while, it’s as well as magic to check its virtual tour in their YouTube channel.

#7- El Captain – Yosemite National Park, USA
If you know me, you will certainly understand why I have added a visit to El Captain in my list of essential virtual tours. I fear highs.
But I am a massive fan of Alex Hannold – the American rock climber who is also the only human being to climb the beast without equipment in a free-soloing performance. He’s amazing. But El Captain is magnificent. It worth it a virtual climbing tour to it. Here is your chance to Climb El Captain now.
