If you’re looking to explore Canada’s beautiful parks this summer, you can now plan ahead thanks to Google Street View.
Google has digitally mapped 167 parks across the country, meaning you can check out these amazing landscapes before even visiting in person.
Several notable parks to check out on Google Street View include:
- Lake Louise – Banff National Park
- West Coast Trail- Pacific Rim National Park
- Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site
- Port-Royal National Historic Site
- Forillon National Park
- Terra Nova National Park
Google Street View also gives Canadians access to some of the most remote park sites in the country, including Nahanni National Park Reserve.The 30,000 square km park, located in the Northwest Territories, features wilderness and isolation at its most extreme.
In October, Google also made Nunavut’s Quttinirpaaq National Park available on Street View. The park is so remote that it sees less than 50 visitors each year.
The online maps now claim to cover 75% of Parks Canada spaces across the country.
You can find the full list of parks featured on Google Street View on Parks Canada’s website.
