Go on a solo expedition

You can explore virtual-reality (VR) and augmented-reality (AR) expeditions on your own (without a Guide) using a mobile device.

For a VR expedition, you select a destination and explore it virtually as if you were actually there. With AR, you view AR objects as if they were physically in the room with you.
