The global spread of the novel coronavirus has shelved travel completely. Which, not so surprisingly, has also impacted much of the Travel content you'd expect to see from Loop Lifestyle.

The truth is no one’s travelling anywhere. So many have had to turn to virtual sojourns to relive the joy of wanderlust yet again.

As virtual experiences become the new norm, viewers adapt and are seemingly immersing themselves in digital travel overload.

And, from a recent post via the National Geographic Travel, the Loop Lifestyle team gleaned: “You don’t even have to leave home to embark on a virtual trip to northern Sweden, where a hot-air balloon flight over the Arctic and a trek through Lapland’s wilderness awaits.”

Stamp your digital passport by visiting any of these five virtual travel experiences.
