Visit These National Parks Without Leaving Home

man exploring a virtual tour of national parks

Liven things up at home with stunning views of volcanoes, glaciers, and one-of-a-kind rock formations. Explore these beautiful national parks without ever leaving your couch. National Parks currently offering virtual tours include:

Kenai Fjords National Park

Begin your virtual tour of Kenai Fjords National Park by staring into a crevasse in Exit Glacier. Put together by the National Park Service and Google Arts & Culture, the digital trek through glaciers, mountains, and icy fjords is informative, compelling, and highly interactive. The mesmerizing music, 360-degree pictures, and audio by Park Ranger, Fiona North, make it a truly memorable experience.

Wear headphones for an even more immersive adventure. On the virtual tour, you will learn why your guide kicks it off by saying, “I moved here from New York City and, once I saw what it was like, I didn’t want to leave.”

Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park

Traverse the ever-changing landscape of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park on your computer, iPad, or smartphone. Start with the Nahuku Lava Tube. A lava tube is a thin cave or conduit formed by miles and miles of flowing lava. When volcanoes are active, these tubes drain lava away from the volcano. Over time, the remaining rock cools, solidifies, and forms long, winding caves.

Other stops along the tour include a bird’s-eye view of an active volcano and the remains of the infamous 1959 eruption.

Carlsbad Caverns National Park

View dark and mysterious caverns through the eyes of a bat. Park Ranger, Pam Cox, leads the Carlsbad Caverns National Park digital tour. The tour launches in the midst of a massive swarm of bats flying in all directions. The interactive simulation invites you to experience life as a bat by navigating caves and crevices using echolocation. It concludes with a one-of-a-kind peek into caverns 750 feet deep. Unlike the in-person, guided tour, you can even wander off path and explore wherever you would like.

Explore remarkable glaciers, volcanoes, and caverns from your living room in these national parks — and while you’re at it — take a virtual tour of our apartments! Contact us today to schedule your appointment or visit our blog for more things to do.
