Potsdam 7th July 2020 - Komoot, Europe’s biggest digital community of outdoor enthusiasts and acclaimed route planning and navigation app, has unlocked its Discover feed for users in the Netherlands. An update to its recommended Tours feature also makes it easier than ever to find and explore routes from wherever you are.
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.
The komoot Discover feed is a rich and entertaining news feed with a variety of inspiration tailored to every user: from exciting adventures their community of friends has been enjoying, to rich and informative cycling and hiking guides tailored to users’ localities. Komoot users will be inspired by Tour recommendations and inspirational route Collections based on their preferred outdoor activities, and the ability to see what other adventurers in the area are getting up to. They’ll also get suggestions for komoot users worth following. Komoot is a place for the outdoor community to connect online, and now, thanks to the Discover feed, it’s an exciting source of inspiration for Dutch explorers too.
From beautifully themed Tour Collections compiled by local komoot editors, to area Guides using smart technology to showcase Tour recommendations for the selected sport and region, Komoot users in the Netherlands now have access to thousands of possibilities for adventures in the great outdoors, both near and afar.
Komoot is home to millions of Highlights, which are tips and recommendations left on the komoot map by local experts to help others plan their best adventures. Komoot’s Tour recommendations are location based, the results of a smart technology that finds the best routes and Highlights near users’ current locations. By comparing a wide range of factors such as way type and surface types, activity types, relevant highlights and high quality imagery, komoot can create awesome hiking, cycling, and running route recommendations that make exploring with komoot even more convenient and relevant.
