During the corona time I returned to my childhood landscape for a few weeks. I explored nearby forests and landscapes and noticed a positive impact on presence and my energies. I realized that in the hustle and bustle of the city it is easy to forget what effect nature has on the state of being. And what kind of effect do you get when visiting nature regularly.
After returning to the city I noticed how the stress rushed on again. There was no time to travel back in the following weeks. However, I had some videos recorded in the forest and I started watching those videos. After that I felt better and realized that it is not always necessary to physically go to nature but it can also be done virtually. In conclusion, you can release stress on your home couch.
So I want to offer this experience to you also and that is why I set up this service where you can quickly get to the edge of nature in the middle of a busy day. Since my first experiences in my childhood forest I have acquired more equipment and visited several times in nature in new areas to capture the atmosphere and views which energizes me. I have selected the best and most relaxing views with sounds for you. Enjoy and relax!

Virtual nature is a place where you can experience real nature without actually going to nature physically. However, you will see the views of real nature and hear the sounds of real nature and look around. Base concept is Virtual Reality (VR). Our Virtual Nature Service uses 360 videos to implement virtual nature experience. In practice, it is watching special video recorded with a special camera on a smartphone or other device such as a VR headset.
how to go to virtual nature
At it’s lightest you only need a smartphone or tablet, supported software like web browser or mobile application and our 360 degree video to play. By moving the device you can look around like in real nature. For a better experience you can use VR cardboard or VR glasses in which you can put your smartphone inside. Then you can watch around by moving your head.
