Launching today, Outtt is the companion app for discovering Norwegian nature.
“The three t’s are inspired by the idea of Outtt being able to take you further than you could on your own,” says Mari Mathews, COO & Partner at Outtt – answering our most burning question. Trip. Trail. Track.
“Plan your trip. Find the trail. And track yourself!”
The app is developed in Norway by a multinational team, and supported, among others, by Innovation Norway. It features curated lists, insider tips and forecasts. You can read up on popular adventures, or discover “secret” ones. You can chat with local experts, and track your position on the map.
“We believe those wanting to head outdoors deserve the best way to tap in to local knowledge that word of mouth and Google searches can’t provide,” said Mathews in a statement.
One member of the Outtt team, by the way, is a familiar face to Visit Norway’s readers. Samuel Taipale stars in, and helped create, the short film of a Norwegian round-trip that has been featured on Visit Norway’s front page this spring. See it, and read the behind-the-scenes interview.
The Finnish world traveller, photographer and Instagram influencer has made sure that Outtt sports amazing images such as these.
At launch, Outtt has 15 regional partners in Norway who curate content and provide support, using the app as a digital platform for their region. One neat touch is that, if you have questions, you can message local providers, as well as Outtt ambassadors and guides, directly from the app.
You don’t have to ask for most of the info, though. When you browse for potential new adventures, you’ll see information like distance, duration and difficulty at a glance. Then, you can read up on amenities, see the weather forecast, and get useful insider tips.
Not least, you’ll be able to track your location and progress on an interactive map – even if you’re offline. Your route and stats can then be saved and shared, and you can follow and compare with your friends.
Exploring the mountains and embracing nature and the outdoors is a way of life for most Norwegians. And our most scenic nature is definitely best enjoyed on foot.
The new app from Hanen is your guide to local food, charming accommodation options and interesting activities across Norway – with great hosts at the centre of the experience.
