There's nothing that can compare to seeing the beauty of the Rocky Mountains in person, so in order to entice people there, Rocky Mountaineer created a 360-degree virtual reality train tour.

The 'Rocky Mountaineer Train in 360' experience can be viewed on YouTube with an inexpensive Google Cardboard headset, or any other available VR viewers. In the span of just under two minutes, viewers are taken on a journey through Canada's west coast with perspectives from inside and outside of the train.

Many leaders int he travel, tourism and hospitality industries are favoring the use of virtual reality technology when it comes to highlighting great destinations or giving the public a taste of what it might be like to experience adventures with its company first-hand.
