Shared experiences are the most beautiful. You can invite friends to a self-planned Tour or to an already existing one. You have the option to invite friends to a Tour via the app or the website. Your friends will see the planned Tour in their profile and can use it on their own devices for navigation. The option to Invite friends () is available after saving the Tour and at any time from the Tour profile Profile () > Planned.

The invited person will be informed in the Profile as well as via the Discover feed and can accept or decline the Tour from here. Provided "Someone invite me to a tour or tag me on a tour" is enabled in the invitee's notification settings, an invitation will also be sent via app notification and/or email. 

In case the user accepts the invite, any change of this Tour will also be visible to the invited user. In case of a decline, you will get a notification about it (under the bell symbol). 

Tip: If you allow komoot to access your contacts, you can invite friends from here. Only contacts whose email address are saved in your contacts will be displayed.

Generate an invitation link

You want to invite many people at the same time? Generate an invitation link and share it on Facebook and other social media, in a WhatsApp message or in an email. Anyone who receives this link can join your Tour. You can also send this link to friends who don't have a komoot account. They will not be able to accept the invitation, but if you make your Tour public, they will be able to see it.

  • Select the Tour you want to invite someone to
  • On the website: Click    Invite > Generate a link
  • In the app: Select    Invite friends > Invite people via link
  • Copy the link and share it with your friends
