What is Trek View?

Trek View is a not-for-profit organisation using the power of panoramic photography to help protect against further destruction of our beautiful planet. We:

  • Encourage people to embark on new adventures to places nearby or across the globe.
  • Provide those who are unable to travel the opportunity to see and learn about locations around the world.
  • Show children the beauty of our planet and inspire them to explore it in sustainable ways.
  • Give organisations and communities the ability to market themselves on the world's stage.
  • Prevent the loss of vital habitats by making people aware of their existence to promote conservation efforts.
  • Capture environments being lost, through natural or man-made means, to allow future generations to enjoy them.

Who do you work with?

Our projects come to fruition in a number of ways, Generally we receive requests from organisations, government departments, or local communities to capture imagery from a location.

If you would like to work with us, submit an application to our camera loan program here.

Won't virtual tours discourage visitors?

Most visitors do research online before visiting a location.

Studies have shown that businesses who use Google Street View will see 20% growth in their in-store traffic.

We expect Trek View imagery drives similar increases in footfall based qualitative feedback from owners and managers of locations we've created tours of.
