Navigating Through Nature with Komoot

We’re all bonded by a common love of exploring the great outdoors, but have you ever found yourself slightly more off-piste than planned?

Wherever and however you choose to explore, the Komoot app offers hand-picked routes to help you navigate your way through mother nature. With the option to be filtered by distance and difficulty to suit all abilities, Komoot uses navigation tech to help you plan your perfect route for a range of outdoor adventures. 

Whether you want smooth roads for cycling, serene trails for hiking or off-road tracks for mountain biking, Komoot generates sport-specific routing that includes whatever you want to tick off your bucket list along the way. 

Choose from a ready-built route for ease of planning or step it up by plotting your very own trail, the app will have you meandering amongst mountain ranges and wandering through woodland with ease. It’ll even work offline to ensure you’re never left high and dry without direction. 

Komoot Partner with BES

With a passion for protecting people and the planet, we’re delighted to welcome Komoot as a brand partner for the Blue Earth Summit ‘22. We caught up with the team as they gear up to join us for another great event in Bristol in October….

 What’s your brand’s purpose and what inspired that?

It’s Komoot’s mission to make outdoor adventures accessible to all. At Komoot we love tech, we love nature, and we work to make it easy for everyone to explore the world’s most beautiful places. Today, more than 28 million people find, plan and share adventures with us. Their experiences are what drives us and makes us smile everyday. We believe that every day spent outside exploring is a valuable day; more valuable than anything you can buy’. 

Why would you say the Blue Earth Summit is relevant to you?

At Komoot we understand the need for promoting sustainable adventures and agree that businesses can have a positive impact on the world and be a force for good. We love to work with events and brands that truly align with our ethos and values. At Komoot we care about people and the planet and recognise that the Blue Earth Summit is promoting positive change in the outdoor industry. After visiting the event last year we realised it was something that we wanted to be a part of… bringing together people and brands to inspire change, we knew we had to be involved in!’ 

Komoot x BES App

We’ve teamed up with Komoot to offer all Blue Earth Summit attendees ready-built routes to walk, cycle or run their way around Bristol to or from the BES event sites. There are even set routes you can follow from cities such as London, Manchester, Exeter and Cardiff that will guide you on tracks and nature trails right to the heart of the Blue Earth Summit action.
