Visorando is the reference website and mobile app for outdoor activity routes. Our main focus is about walking, cycling and mountain biking tracks in the United Kingdom and France, and we include routes in other countries too. The site covers a wide range: from Sunday strolls to strenuous mountain hikes, long-distance trails and urban walks. The quality of the tracks we offer is more important than everything else for us: each track is precisely described and accompanied by a route map. The mobile app helps you to follow the hike on the ground by showing your GPS location in real-time. With these features, millions of people enjoy new routes each year thanks to Visorando.
The website was built on a participative model: everyone from private individuals to tourism professionals can share their own routes. Each track is checked by a team of moderators before being published. Users are then invited to give their opinion on the routes they have followed. By collecting information from the field, we are able to keep the tracks up to date. It is this specific model that has allowed us to build a collection of routes whose quality is currently unrivalled on the free web.
Our website is also available in French : click here to visit the French version of Visorando.
Visorando is managed by a team of eight full-time employees based in Alsace, at the bottom of the Vosges in France, plus about fifteen moderators across the country.
