About us

We're nature-loving city dwellers who spend much of our time deskbound and yearn to be a bit more active. We're not really fans of the gym but love to get out, stretch our legs and explore our local areas, especially with our young families in tow. We'd been getting frustrated by how hard it is to uncover new places to do just that – take short and long local walks, find hidden trails in familiar haunts, new adventures away from home and discover the nature on our doorstep and beyond so we created Go Jauntly. 

A free community-based walking app, Go Jauntly invites you into a world of outdoor adventure. Find local walks created by the people who love and know them, create your own routes and share them with your friends, family and the growing Go Jauntly community.
