Google Maps is giving Canadians a chance to see even more of the Great White North's spectacular landmarks than they could before.

The search engine announced Tuesday that it is featuring virtual tours of over 50 new locations on its popular web mapping service, allowing users to see places such as Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick and Pacific Rim National Park in B.C. up close, in spectacular photos.

Users can access the new images by typing in a particular location and then clicking on the photo function that comes up beneath it.

Other highlights among the new additions include incredible snapshots of Ontario's Niagara Falls and Alberta's Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump.
