It’s a tough time for adventurers. Being stuck at home is rough if you’re prone to wanderlust.

The good news is that the internet has a plethora of ways to tame your travel bug. Faux free! Here are some of the coolest live stream and virtual trips you can take without leaving your couch. 

Grab your favorite SpiritHoods and get ready to see the world — no passport required. 

African Wildlife

The Tembe Elephant Park in South Africa is home to not only elephants but lions, rhinos, buffalo, and even leopards. Spend a lazy afternoon lounging in your Leopard Faux Fur Robe and feast your eyes on some of the most beautiful and rare animals on earth. With cameras on several watering holes, you can catch a glimpse of some amazing animals in the wild. Be sure to keep quiet about the rhinos though! Since they’re frequent victims of poachers, this endangered species must be protected. Please don’t mention that you’ve seen them even just on the live stream.

Disney Rides

A virtual wonderland of your favorite characters is waiting for you on YouTube. You can find full videos of nearly any ride from the theme parks. You’ll feel the bustle of the crowd and the excitement of the children eagerly waiting to ride. If you’re missing the magic of your favorite mouse, get a tiny taste of that with these unofficial videos. And don’t skip It’s A Small World — that’s a mandatory part of any Disney trip.

Hiking and exploring this ancient city is a lot of work. First, you have to get to Peru and then your body has to adapt to the altitude. OR you can skip all of that and check out the ruins at home — thanks to Google. Without breaking a sweat you can tour this bucket list destination.

Let’s be real here for a second. You’re probably never going to climb Mt. Everest. So forget about spoilers and check out this virtual trip. You can reach the highest summit on earth entirely through VR. The 360-degree views of this harrowing journey will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Witnessing the beauty of the Northern Lights is something every adventurer should add to their bucket list. But in nature, there are no guarantees. You could plan a trip to Iceland or Alaska during the right time of year and still see nothing but clouds. Why not save your vacation days and check out this live stream instead? At least if you’re disappointed, you won’t be freezing to death.
