Until now, komoot users residing in the Netherlands used komoot primarily for planning, navigating and tracking hikes and bike rides, with komoot’s interactive maps as the primary source of information. As of today, Dutch komoot users will be inspired by the new Discover feed - appearing as a tab in their komoot interface on desktop and mobile. This  feature is free of charge.
