With the world on lockdown due to COVID-19 – one tourism company has gone above and beyond to give people around the world the chance to experience Lapland in all its majesty – without having to leave the confines of their homes.
Specialist Aurora Photography company, Lights Over Lapland, has brought together some of Europe’s best photographers and Virtual Reality videographers from thejetlagged.com to create three experiences for those suffering wanderlust to virtually travel to Northern Europe and visit ICEHOTEL; visit the local Arctic wilderness; meet local huskies and reindeer; go dogsledding and reindeer sledding; and even join a Northern Lights hunt.
This new experience has been shared free of charge in an effort to give those missing out on travelling in person, or those simply wanting to fulfil a travel dream, the chance to experience travel to the region whilst confined to their homes during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Princess Cruises beamed a heart-warming message “We Will Be Back” from the balcony staterooms of Sky Princess, the newest ship in its 18-strong fleet.
Like her sister ships, Sky Princess has paused operations for 60 days, but will return to sail across Scandinavia and Russia after this time.
Along with illuminating the message across the ship, the cruise line also displayed a banner at the atrium of Sky Princess, conveying the same message.
Princess also shared the heartwarming image on its social media platforms, where cruisers showed their love and support for the brand.
