Here at Parks Canada, now we have rather a lot to say about Quttinirpaaq National Park. We may let you know it’s the northernmost park in Canada, or that it lies roughly 500 miles (800 kilometers) from the North Pole. We may let you know it’s dwelling to 4000-year-old archeologist websites or that it’s the second-largest nationwide park within the nation. But, we don’t must let you know anymore. Now we are able to present you, with our new Street View assortment.
Last summer time, our workforce threw on the Google Trekker and explored the park’s unbelievable terrain—it was the furthest north Street View has ever gone. Wilderness and excessive isolation characterize this space, the place fewer than 50 individuals go to every year. The park’s title itself interprets to “the highest of the world” in Inuktitut, the native indigenous language.
