Our Exclusive Walking APP

Designed by Life's An Adventure

Exclusively designed by Life’s An Adventure, the Self-Guided Walking Tours will be more than just a set of track notes on your smartphone. Our fully interactive Self-Guided Walking App includes easy-to-follow walking notes with GPS tracking, photos of track junctions and points of interest en-route as well as information about the natural environment. The app will give average walking times, distances for each section and even optional side-trips as well as short and long walk options for each day.

As well as having the walking app on your phone, you get track information on the Google map platform, so each waypoint on each walk will be triggered as you arrive at that point, whether it be a fork in the track or point of interest to guide you along the way. This gives real-time feedback so you know you are exactly where you think you are! On top of this, you receive a good, old-fashioned hard copy of each day’s track notes.
