Go Spelunking and Horseback Riding through Scenic National Parks

Last August, our country celebrated the 100th anniversary of the National Parks Service. Google put together a virtual reality project in YouTube 360 to give viewers a taste of the eye candy within the National Parks.

Kenai Fjords, a National Park in Alaska, is toured by a group of travel guides as they capture the natural beauty.

Within the immersive viewing experience, this short film starts off with a group of rock/glaicer climbers rappelling down two sections of Alaskan ice.

If you are watching the video below on a computer, users can toggle with the mouse to access different views. If you have a cardboard headset, and a smartphone with the YouTube app, viewers can move their head to access different viewpoints.

Take a plane ride to Hawaii to access the Kīlauea Volcano. The lava covered land is a sight to see.

Swim along the coral reefs of the Dry Tortugas section within Florida. Go underwater with YouTube 360 to feel the experience of scuba diving.

Next, head underground through ancient caves and tunnels at Carlsbad Caverns. This part of the video lets viewers go spelunking through the caverns.

Finally, travel by horseback on the Peek-A-Boo loop through the mountains at Bryce Canyon National Park.

Each section of the video gives viewers the chance to explore different National Parks. Use free time to get exercise and check out the nearest National Park near your area.
