Happiness experts say it’s better to receive an experience than something material. So ditch the shopping crowds and start dreaming. We rounded up the trips to gift your loved ones this holiday season.
We’ve partnered with our friends at OpenSnow to bring you leading backcountry forecasts right on the map. Tap anywhere in the world to get hyper-localized weather as you plan and navigate your adventures.
The high country is officially dusted in white, which means it’s time to tune the skis, get in those last-minute squats, and switch gears into snow mode. Get started by swapping your basemap to Gaia Winter—the best backcountry map, but designed for all things winter.
Level-up your adventures by taking our new online course from Outside Learn. Learn how to take your maps offline so you can navigate without cell service, how to reroute on the fly when you need to modify your plans, and how to customize the map for your adventures.
Don’t let your weekend plans go up in smoke. Gaia GPS’s robust collection of weather maps can help you avoid current wildfires and find smoke-free skies. Learn how to use these (free!) wildfire, smoke, and air quality maps and find safer places to hike, bike, or camp.
Creating your own adventures in Gaia GPS just got even easier — and more fun. Meet our new route editing tools, here to let you quickly fix any mistakes or changes of heart, automatically out-and-back any one-way route, send your route back to the start, and reverse your route direction.
Today we thank our veterans for their service. And we take a moment to reflect on how the history of one of our favorite pastimes, thru-hiking, remains inextricably linked to “walking off the war.” From the father of thru-hiking Earl Shaffer to the founder of Warrior Expeditions Sean Gobin, explore how veterans find catharsis on the trail.
Gaia GPS is such a powerful mapping and navigation tool that even we’ll admit there’s a little bit of a learning curve to mastering its breadth and depth. Take our free, brand-new course to get the most out of the app—and save time on the trail.
