Virtual reality is travel’s natural friend,” declares Alistair Weaver, founder and chief executive of Gaucho Productions. While Gaucho has previously focused on 360-degree and “mixed reality” content for the motor industry – most recently for Ferrari – a project for Mark Warner Holidays earlier this year has opened his eyes to the possibilities within the travel industry.

Over two days, Weaver and colleague Eva Ticha filmed Mark Warner’s Chalet Hotel Le Val D’Isere and the surrounding slopes.
