RGS-HK is excited to partner with VR-Enlightenment Limited to bring members an exclusive Virtual Reality event that offers a unique opportunity to explore the stunning beauty of three distinct geographical wonders in an immersive 360-degree format.

Join us on this immersive virtual field trip, where you are teleported to the Northern Lights, experience the depths of Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, and trek through the remote Kamchatka Peninsula.  This event promises to be an unforgettable experience, bringing you closer to the natural world than ever before.

Northern Lights

You see one of the most magical and vivid phenomena of nature — the aurora borealis.  Even the most spectacular fireworks cannot be compared with it in beauty.  On the Kola Peninsula, green patterns seem to dissect the sky, and all of them are unique.  From the shores of the ocean in Iceland, there is a view of the waves of emerald and purple colours.  Finally, on to Norway to see the lights over the Fjords.

Lake Baikal

In winter, Siberia’s Lake Baikal, world’s oldest and deepest lake, becomes a place of unearthly beauty.  The lake is covered with a two-metre layer of ice, on which giant cracks form.  In this movie, you travel through the snowy landscapes of a huge lake and fly over the frozen water columns.

Kamchatka Peninsula

Perhaps the most amazing and unusual region of Russia is Kamchatka.  This seemingly alien volcanic peninsula is filled with canyons, snowy mountains and beautiful landscapes.  Brown bears wave their paws at you, in front of spectacular volcanos, and local seals and sea lions catch fish right near you.
