Behind the scenes here the improvements never stop, and we’re excited to show you the latest boost to adventure finding on komoot. 

There’s a new menu layout in town and it’s the pretty face of improved usability, more logical route finding, and a boat load of smaller tweaks that, when grouped together, equal a seriously slick user experience. Kind of like the best hike you’ve ever done, with views, snacks, friends, surprise sights, and a smile

Build the habit of adventure with the new streak

5 days ago

You’ll now see your streak in your komoot profile, helping you build the habit of adventure. 

Your streak is the number of weeks in a row you’ve recorded or uploaded an activity of 15 minutes or more, or multiple activities that add up to at least 15 minutes over the week. Why 15 minutes? The adventure streak isn’t about who can spend the most time outdoors or who can do the most distance. Instead, it’s a nudge to remind you to head outside

You can now use sport-specific maps on your Garmin device when you have komoot Premium


6 days ago

When you use the komoot map on your Garmin® device and have komoot Premium, you’ll now see the same sport-specific markings as you do when planning. This means official cycle, MTB, and hiking routes; MTB difficulty markers; and trailmarkers (on-trail directional marking or symbols, e.g. the Camino de Santiago scallop) will show up on your Garmin smartwatch or bike computer, depending on what sport you’re doing. This helps you better keep an

Celebrate comments you like by tapping the heart icon

Keep everyone on the right track with our new group Tours feature

The group Tours feature allows you to invite others on your adventure, make live route updates, and keep everyone on the right track no matter their pace. Just head to one of your planned Tours and tap the ‘Organize a group hike’ (or ride, or run). Invite your adventure buddies and when you start navigating on the trails, your whole group gets a notification and can navigate the same Tour on their phones or Garmin® devices. Friends can even join

Look out for our updated symbols across komoot maps

Route Planner

March 22, 2024

While we love a big feature release, our seemingly small improvements can make big impacts too. Over the last few months, we’ve been working on an array of updates and upgrades to our maps, improving clarity, inclusivity, and usability. 

Our latest map tweaks include:

    Making nature reserves and other protected areas visually clearer to differentiate them from surrounding landscape

    Switching the non-secular cross symbol for the more inclusive

Find a friend’s profile quickly via a QR code

You can now scan your new adventure buddy’s profile QR code and be taken straight to their komoot profile. Or, you can show them your profile’s QR code and they can follow you quickly and easily too. This makes it simple to follow new trail friends on komoot when you’ve met out in the wild. 

To share your QR code on the mobile app, just head your profile and click the share icon. On web, navigate to your profile and click ‘Share profile’ or

Get recommendations on Tours with the new star rating


March 12, 2024

When searching for Tours, you’ll now see how many people have gone on that Tour as well as its star rating. Just like the star ratings all over the web, these show how previous folk have rated the route, from one to five. Five stars is the best, just to be clear!

This rating system has always been going on behind the scenes – remember after recording a Tour you’re prompted to rate the route with stars? That’s part of the data that goes into

Plan bike rides more easily by using official routes

Route Planner

February 19, 2024

The route planner now uses official cycle routes and paths when your sport is set to ‘bike touring’. When there are official routes and paths near your start or end point, it’ll follow those if applicable, rather than choosing a more direct route. You’ll still get the direction and way points you want, but it’ll prioritize official cycle routes; this means you can be confident the route you’re on has been carefully created specifically for

The elevation profile just got 9x better: No more surprise hills

Route Planner

February 16, 2024

Short, punchy hills are tough, even more so when they’re unexpected. We’ve been working hard to supercharge the elevation data in the route planner so you have a clearer, more accurate idea of what to expect when you’re out on your adventures. This means more accurate elevation figures as well as a more precise elevation profile chart, which depicts hills in finer detail so those short, punchy ones don’t get lost in the scale.
