Sable Island now on Google Street View

Parks Canada has been working with Google to capture Parks Canada places using the Google Street View technology and this week, one of the country's farthest offshore islands was added.

One of Canada's farthest offshore islands was added to Google Street View this week.

Sable Island is the most remote part of Nova Scotia and now people can explore the island and maybe even spot some wild horses.

Parks Canada has been working with Google since 2013 to capture different national parks and Sable Island was the latest added to the collection.

In addition to horses, Canadians can also see the island's shifting sand dunes, freshwater ponds and expansive beaches.
