Stuck at home: virtual tours of the US National Parks and other amazing places

The current global crisis has us all grounded for now but we don't have to stop exploring. Here are some suggestions of how you can go on an armchair adventure to the USA, China, Vietnam and more.

Explore America's National Parks on Google Earth

Wander among the huge trees of the Sequoia and Redwood National Parks or marvel at the Grand Canyon. Relax at the scenic Glacier National Park, fly through the deserts of Joshua Tree National Park or enjoy some incredible mountain views at Grand Teton, Great Smoky Mountains or Yosemite National Parks.


Google Earth really is a marvel. You could use it to take a trip to our favourite areas such as the Dolomites, the Pyrenees or the Himalaya - enjoy!
