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 Tours.

Inviting friends from the Tour profile

The invited person will receive an invite via app notification and/ or email (provided "Someone invite me to a tour or tag me on a tour" is enabled in their notification settings). Here's how you invite friends from the Tour profile:

The invited user will be notified about your invitation in his profile and has the option to accept or decline the invitation. 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
  • Click Invite ()
  • On web: Click Generate a link to invite your friends to this Tour
  • In app: Choose Invite people via link ()
