Tech giant can now let you explore the world’s most idyllic spots without even leaving your bedroom.

Google Treks is a new project that uses Google Street View footage to create curated web tours of worldwide destinations. The hard-to-reach places the team have conquered already include the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon, with plans to cover all of the world’s most iconic landmarks.

Each ‘trip’ offers up information and videos about each location, recreating the experience of reading a guidebook or one could even go as far as saying going on vacation or physically visiting the chosen spot itself.
