Planning round trips
In order to start and end a Tour in 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. If you are looking for how to change the direction of a round trip please check this article: Changing the direction of a Tour.
To plan your own round trip on the website, choose 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. In the next step update the Route Type to “Round trip” by clicking on the option “Route” in the drop down menu on the left where it says “One way”.
In the iOS app start planning a route by adding the start and finishing point similar to when planning on the website (the end point should be the waypoint furthest away from your starting point on the round trip). Then you click on the green bar on top of the screen to make the waypoint list appear, where you can see the “Round Trip” option as well. You will get a round trip suggested by komoot, which you can adjust according to your needs.
In the Android app start by planning a route by adding the start and finishing point similar to when planning on the website (the end point should be the waypoint furthest away from your starting point on the round trip). Then click on the three dots you see at the end of the tool box bar on the right side of the map. A list will appear including the option “Round Trip”.
Planning waypoint by waypoint
You can also plan or adjust your round trip Tour step by step by selecting the “One way” Route type and adding one waypoint after the other. Komoot automatically integrates your waypoints into the Tour regardless of the order in which you set them. To avoid this, select your end point by clicking a point on the map and select "Set as destination”. In the PC you can also hold down the alt key on a Windows computer (option key on a Mac) and then 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.
