Tour planner and hiking navigation
You haven't found the perfect hiking or ski tour yet? Then use the bergfex tour planner. In just a few steps you can create your personal hike and let it navigate you to the summit. The precise GPS hiking navigator won't let you down even in the mountains.
Our maps for the entire European Alpine region come from OpenStreetMap (OSM). This means that when planning your route and while hiking, you can be sure that you will find the right route thanks to regularly updated maps.
Tracking hiking routes and trails
Track the distance covered while hiking, ski touring, running or mountain biking and get comprehensive statistics such as duration, altitude metres, elevation profile, distance and speed. A heat map shows you all the activities you have recorded so far.
Route and fitness tracking combined
Keep track of your fitness level and activities! Optionally, you can wear a Bluetooth heart rate monitor while hiking, ski touring or other sports to get even more detailed information about your fitness level.
Garmin Connect, websync and GPX-import
Your hikes and planned tours are automatically synchronised with your bergfex account. Tracked activities are also displayed in Garmin Connect and Polar Flow. Self-created routes can be exported and imported via GPX file.
