Hawaii's volcanoes will soon be visible on Google Street View.

The internet company is lending its backpack cameras to a Hawaii trail guide company to capture panoramic images of Big Island hiking trails.

Photos will be loaded to Google Maps and the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau website, gohawaii.com.

Google has already taken Street View images of the Grand Canyon and other sites popular with travellers.

Hawaii Forest & Trail hikers plan to walk along more than 20 state and national park trails on the Big Island by September. The images should be online by the end of the year or early next year.

The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau plans to expand the project to other Hawaii islands afterwards.
