Google Street View cameras have been to some amazing destinations over the last few years as they brought magical natural features and scenery to virtual viewers through the always-expanding Street View image collection. Now the Street View collection on Google Maps includes new images of Iceland, a country filled with natural beauty from border to border, including spectacular geysers, waterfalls and other magnificent features, according to an Aug. 20 post by Deanna Yick, Street View program manager, on the Google Maps Blog. To collect the pictures, Google sent its Street View cameras to some of the most stunning locations throughout the country, she wrote. Among the highlights are the dramatic and picturesque Gullfoss Waterfall, the Dettifoss Waterfall, Vatnajokull National Park and the Haukadalur Geothermal Area. Also included in the collection are images taken and contributed by photographers who have visited Iceland and shared their work. Be sure to take the time to view these images of Iceland and see incredible places that you likely have never seen before.
