New Google Street View Spotlights Hidden Gems


Google Street View is highlighting “off the beaten paths” so before you visit a less touristic destination, you can already experience it.

Google’s Trekker backpack hi-tech cameras focus on places around the world you may have heard of but they might not be popular enough to make your bucket list.

Along with famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower or the Great Wall, less touristic destinations such as National Parks in Australia, the Hudson River and Pennsylvania’s Bucks County are spotlighted. With Trekker’s multi-camera devices that capture comprehensive views of destinations, Google hopes to aid travelers who are heading to these less known areas with navigation knowledge so no one gets lost.


Google’s Trekker initiative began in 2013 as a loaning program collaborating with tourism bureaus, non-profits and schools. The application for Trekker is for travelers who work for these types of organizations and for folks who like to take pictures.

Google Street View’s new direction might not only satisfy trekking explorers, but wanderlusts looking for hidden gems are rejoicing too.
