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. But 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, and discover the nature on our doorstep and beyond. So we created Go Jauntly.
A free community-based 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 and share them with your friends and the Go Jauntly community.
Chief walker and talker

Hana is at the front line of the business and in the past has led key projects for the likes of Google, Xbox and Nike, some of the world’s most innovative and disruptive brands. She is a strong believer in the power of tech for good. Her little jaunts are mostly with her husband and four year old explorer and as long as they are by the sea or have incredible views, they always finish their walks knackered but happy.

Founding Partner & Design Lead
Award-winning Product Designer extraordinaire, Mikaela hails from Sweden, where the lakes are clear, the air is clear and trolls live in the pine forests. Mikaela manages to make digital things that are impactful and timeless creating indoor and outdoor experiences that aim to change the world. As long as she has her camera, murder-themed podcasts and discreet headphones plugged in to accompany the sunshine and great views, she's happy.

Founding Partner & Creative Director
Liam is an award winning freelance animation director and interaction designer. When he’s not working for Go Jauntly, he’s creating games with purpose and animations and UX and UI design for new innovations within the NHS and digital health. When it comes to walking adventures, Liam wants one that takes him through different zones, like a computer game – give him woods, water and hills and he'll always come back buzzing and wanting more.

Our Walking Jaunstars
We are always up for getting more walks on the app to provide jauntsers with fresh walks and adventures to go on. We couldn't do it without our fabulous content ambassadors, always on the look out for their own unique adventures to share on Go Jauntly.
Paul Wood, aka The Street Tree, is an author and blogger who delights in the urban forest. His in app walks take you on some tree rich jaunts in which the various species are pointed out to you with some expert knowledge from the master himself.
Our resident northern jaunster, Sarah has provided Go Jauntly with some of it's most breathtaking jaunts. A fan of a big walk with incredible views, historical facts and woodland treks, Sarah's walks are for all types of explorers.
Gabrielle always tries to take picturesque jaunts, perfect for that instagram shot. More often than not there’s a stop (or two) or food or coffee as well.
Keen amateur photographer and globe trotter, Sylvia has come from Hungary via the USA to lovely London, and loves exploring her surroundings with camera in tow. Expect beautiful nature shots of stunning scenery and some art thrown in for good measure.
