10 Great Car Journeys in Street View

This week the Jalopnik website used TripGeo to create an animated Street View drive of the Dalton Highway in Alaska.

TripGeo is a great widget that lets you create embeddable animated Street View journeys anywhere that Google Maps has Street View coverage. Inspired by Jalopnik, here are my ten favourite Street View journeys animated by TripGeo:

Dalton Highway, Alaska

Transfagarasan Highway

The Transfăgărăşan is the most dramatic and second-highest paved road in Romania. The 90 km of twists and turns run north to south across the tallest sections of the Southern Carpathians, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu.

Chapmans Peak, South Africa

Chateau d'Eox , Switzerland

Kirkstone Pass, UK

Kirkstone Pass is a mountain pass in the English Lake District, in the county of Cumbria. This is the Lake District's highest pass that is open to motor traffic.

Millau Viaduct, France

The Millau Viaduct is a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France. It is the tallest bridge in the world,

Highway 1, California

Lake Como, Italy

Øresund Bridge, Denmark to Sweden

The Øresund Bridge connects Sweden and Denmark, and it is the longest road and rail bridge in Europe.

Stuart Highway, Australia

tThe Stuart Highway is one of Australia's major highways. It is the principal north-south route through the central interior of mainland Australia and is often referred to simply as "The Track".

The street view of car journies is awesome. Now, if I could just find a place to get away from my wife's astonishly loud snoring at night and get a little sleep. I sthere a Google Map for such a place?!

I used this very cool TripGeo tool to create streetview tours for passes in the alps. Like for example the Alpe d'Huez, Col du Galibier and all the other big mountain passes in the alps. Go to and search for streetview.
