Making sure you get home safely after an adventure in the mountains is not just one of our values, it is also part of our product's DNA.
The features we continue to develop and build are there to provide you with safety and the knowledge that you can always rely on Outdooractive in an emergency.
A platform built with safety at its core
The human need for security is nothing new - and as humans have spent most of their evolutionary history outdoors, it's hardly surprising that many of us still feel a strong sense of connection and 'home' when we're out in nature.
The hunter-gatherers of the stone age grew accustomed to dealing with dangerous animals and the demands of often very challenging terrain. Everyday dangers to life and limb have greatly diminished over time and with them some of our skills and instincts.
That being said, the development of innovative technology does allow us to make use of digital mapping for planning, tracking, and navigating outdoor activities, and this is best achieved with the cooperation of outdoor professionals- something that sets Outdooractive apart from other outdoor platforms.

Getting you home safely
Being able to couple the best maps available with global coordinate systems are vital to rescuing people in emergencies, and in extreme situations, our technology can help save lives. Such features are not just available to our Pro and Pro+ users - we also provide them to search and rescue teams free of charge.
Our app is intuitive and offers reliability when you're faced with extreme situations such as cold, wind, darkness, and bad weather.
The best part is that every individual can benefit from these tools - not just professionals.
