9 Breathtaking 360-Degree Views Of Hawaii, Thanks To Google's Trekker

Posted: Updated:

So your pockets aren’t burning with the thousands of dollars it takes to visit Hawaii? No sweat. The Hawaii Visitor’s and Conventions Bureau (HVCB) has you covered.

In partnership with Google Maps -- the first of its kind -- HVCB loaded staff members of Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources with Google Trekkers, a backpack equipped with a 360-degree camera that records street-level images on foot. The staffers then walked a bunch of the state’s most natural and iconic tourist spots.

Google opened up applications last year for various organizations to borrow a Trekker and “help map the world.” Hawaii was the first volunteer chosen, and these are the amazing results.

From a particularly voggy view of Waikiki Beach to the beautiful Round Top Forest Reserve in the Koolau Mountains, here are our favorites:
