Google Street View Captures the Beauty of Canada’s Quttinirpaaq National Park

In a new blog post at Google, Emma Upton, Quttinirpaaq National Park Manager with Parks Canada, has shared the story behind Google’s new Street View collection that captures the beauty of Canada’s Quttinirpaaq National Park, which is located nearly 800 kilometers from the North Pole and is home to 4000-year-old archeologist sites.

Emma and her team threw on the Google Trekker and explored the country’s second-largest national park’s incredible terrain, making it the furthest north Google Street View has ever gone. “Wilderness and extreme isolation characterize this area, where fewer than 50 people visit each year”, she writes, adding that the park’s name itself translates to “the top of the world” in local language.
