ARCHITECTURE: The Palace of Versailles at Virtual Tour
Escape to the gilded (and expansive) palace of Versailles, home to French King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette — before the small matter of a revolution, at least. Explore their extravagant (separate) bedchambers, saunter through the Hall of Mirrors, gaze at the pastel ceiling of the Royal Opera House and follow the gravel paths of the renowned royal gardens.

NATURE: Northern Lights at Live Stream
The traditional version of a northern lights tour goes something like this: 1. Put on 147 layers. 2. Waddle out into some gorgeous but still undeniably bone-chilling expanse. 3. Wait patiently. 4. Run inside to warm up. 5. Emerge to learn you’ve just missed the show. 6. Repeat until your luck changes. Of course, the spectacle is totally worth the effort. But one advantage of watching from home, which you can do thanks to Manitoba’s Churchill Northern Studies Centre, is that you eliminate steps 1-5 and cut straight to nature’s most amazing light show. And early spring (i.e., now) happens to be among the best times to be tuning in. The show is better after dark...

Bryce Canyon stands out among America’s national parks for the concentration and intensity of its hoodoos, those iconic pillars of brilliantly coloured rock that form undulating clusters in bends in the park’s valley walls.

This ranger-guided tour — one of several created by the Park Service — takes you into the canyon’s corners and over its swells, providing you with behind-the-scenes notes throughout the journey. It’s the next best thing to being there, and an outstanding prelude to an in-person visit.

NATURE: The San Diego Zoo at Live Stream
The USA’s most visited zoo — with more than 3,500 animals in residence — was a pioneer in the world of open-air habitats, and remains a leader in conservation science. You can watch a number of its most beloved inhabitants — from koalas to penguins to the new baby orangutan of the Lost Forest — on livestreams. Your virtual visit even has an edge over real life: though mega-celebs Bai Yun and Xiao Liwu were repatriated last year, you'll still find great archival footage of them on the Panda Cam.

PARKS: Bryce Canyon at Virtual Tour
Bryce Canyon stands out among America’s national parks for the concentration and intensity of its hoodoos, those iconic pillars of brilliantly coloured rock that form undulating clusters in bends in the park’s valley walls. It’s easy to see where names like “Fairyland Point” and “Amphitheatre” came from. This ranger-guided tour — one of several created by the Park Service — takes you into the canyon’s corners and over its swells, providing you with behind-the-scenes notes throughout the journey. It’s the next best thing to being there, and an outstanding prelude to an in-person visit.

NATURE: Northern Lights at Live Stream
The traditional version of a northern lights tour goes something like this: 1. Put on 147 layers. 2. Waddle out into some gorgeous but still undeniably bone-chilling expanse. 3. Wait patiently. 4. Run inside to warm up. 5. Emerge to learn you’ve just missed the show. 6. Repeat until your luck changes. Of course, the spectacle is totally worth the effort. But one advantage of watching from home, which you can do thanks to Manitoba’s Churchill Northern Studies Centre, is that you eliminate steps 1-5 and cut straight to nature’s most amazing light show. And early spring (i.e., now) happens to be among the best times to be tuning in. The show is better after dark...

Your virtual visit even has an edge over real life: though mega-celebs Bai Yun and Xiao Liwu were repatriated last year, you'll still find great archival footage of them on the Panda Cam.

PARKS: Bryce Canyon at Virtual Tour
Bryce Canyon stands out among America’s national parks for the concentration and intensity of its hoodoos, those iconic pillars of brilliantly coloured rock that form undulating clusters in bends in the park’s valley walls. It’s easy to see where names like “Fairyland Point” and “Amphitheatre” came from. This ranger-guided tour — one of several created by the Park Service — takes you into the canyon’s corners and over its swells, providing you with behind-the-scenes notes throughout the journey. It’s the next best thing to being there, and an outstanding prelude to an in-person visit.

Join celebrated Chicago trumpeter, composer, and bandleader, Orbert Davis, as he presides over a celebration of the “Great Black Migration” to Chicago. “Imagine how diminished American music would be if the Great Migration had not brought Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Mahalia Jackson, Thomas A. Dorsey, Muddy Waters and uncounted others to Chicago, where their work could be disseminated globally via radio broadcasts, music publishing and recordings. The music they created serves as tangible testament to the incalculable cultural impact of the Great Migration, which many historians date from 1916 to 1970.” (Chicago Tribune)

Don't Think I've Forgotten: Cambodia's Lost Rock & Roll at Aga Khan Museum, 77 Wynford Dr., Toronto
Revel in the sounds of rediscovered artists in this moving film about Cambodia’s unique rock and roll music scene which was nearly lost forever. During the 1960s and 70s, with war threatening the country’s borders, a thrilling new sound emerged, blending traditional melodies and rhythms with western rock and roll. Though the music became the soul of the nation, it was soon brutally repressed by the Khmer Rouge regime’s genocidal effort to wipe out all traces of Western influence. Through interviews with surviving musicians, rare songs, and never-before-seen archival material, the film revives and celebrates Cambodia’s vibrant musical culture.

Kenai Fjords National Park at Virtual Tour
Only by Alaskan standards could this qualify as small (it's the state’s smallest national park, in fact). At more than 1000 square miles, Kenai Fjords is home to dozens of glaciers, almost 200 bird species and an amazing array of land mammals. See: hoary marmots, northern bog lemmings and the five resident species of shrew (!). And did we mention the wolverines? On your guided virtual tour, you can kayak through Bear Glacier lagoon and climb into a glacial crevasse—you know, for practice, until you get there in person.
