In order to start and end a Tour on the same spot, you need to plan it as a round trip. You can plan your own round trips or choose from round Tours suggested by komoot.
Plan your own round trip
To plan a round trip, you choose first a starting point. Then you choose the second waypoint, which usually represents the destination of your Tour. This point should be placed the furthest away from your starting point along the route you want to plan. Then you choose the option “Round trip” underneath the search field on the web page. In the app you find the option “Round Trip” above the waypoints in the planning menu. You will get a round trip suggested by komoot, which you can adapt according to your needs
You can also plan your Tour step by step, meaning one waypoint after the other. By default komoot integrates your waypoints into the tour regardless of the order in which you set them. If you plan a Tour step by step, so that the waypoints appear "in click order", it can happen that the waypoints that are supposed to be integrated into the way back to the beginning of the Tour will be integrated in the wrong part of the route. To avoid this click with the mouse on the map and select "At end of tour" to set the next waypoint at the end of the tour. You can also hold down the alt key on a Windows computer (option key on a Mac) and the click on the next point along your route. On the spot you chose, a new waypoint will appear, which will automatically be the new end point of your Tour.
Get suggestions of round trips
In the app as well as on the webpage, you can get suggestions for round trips from komoot. You go to the “Discover” section and enter a place where you want to find a Tour. All Tour suggestions that show up, will be round trips in the area you chose. You can also use our Highlights which are presented to you in the "Discover" section to get suggestions for Tours that pass by these Highlights. Simply tap on the Highlights and corresponding Smart Tours will be displayed sorted by difficulty level.
