Since we introduced National Geographic Explore VR for Oculus Quest this Spring, fans have navigated around icebergs in a kayak, climbed a massive ice shelf, and survived a raging snowstorm while searching for a lost penguin colony hidden in the frozen wilderness. The result of a partnership with National Geographic and Force Field VR, National Geographic Explore VR pushes immersion and interaction to let you travel the world from the comfort of your own home. Antarctica was an amazing first location, and today, we’re excited to announce a new location coming soon to the experience: Machu Picchu.

Once again setting off as a NatGeo explorer on an interactive expedition, you’ll discover the Incan citadel in the mountains of Peru. Learn about the history and culture through digital reconstructions, witness mummy worship, inspect an Inca home, and raise a cup of sacred chicha.

We’re honored to support National Geographic as it creates innovative and immersive content to help people better understand the world. Step inside National Geographic Explore VR today to traverse the wilds of Antarctica, and stay tuned for more on Machu Picchu.
