The world is vast and beautiful, but not everyone can afford to explore it.
Luckily, Google Maps is dedicated to bringing its users to every corner of the earth. What started in 2007 as a van taking pictures of streets in five cities has evolved into a huge endeavour that spans all seven continents, over 65 countries, and more than 7 million miles.
Using everything from cars to snowmobiles, bikes, dogsleds, and even a
40-pound, 15-lens camera attached to a backpack, Google continues to map our planet. And during that quest, it’s captured some truly unbelievable sights.
We scoured the Google Street View website to see some of the most beautiful places that have ever been captured.
