Do you know these moments, when you remember your mountain experiences and you automatically have to smile? When your body begins to tingle and you’re just grateful for the things you’ve experienced? We too! Therefore, we have a suggestion for you: You can also remember and enjoy these moments afterwards by recording previous hikes and tours in your digital tour book. It’s very easy: On the SummitLynx website as well as in the app you can add previous activities and thus experience these moments of joy again. Here you learn how to do it.

Please note: Retrospectively added hikes will not be used in the evaluation for the hiking badges.

Tip: If you activate your mobile location data on your smartphone, you’ll even get a notification for missed check-ins in the app. You only need to confirm them! Here you will learn more about the suggested checkins >>
