Discover, share & build with Goatrek
The Goatrek app uses adventure as the medium to connect like-minded individuals, combining outdoor exploration with social media.
What is Goatrek?
The Goatrek app allows users to connect through the devices they are already using by providing a place to share authentic travel and/or adventure experiences with our community of trekkers. Whether that be through trekking together or engaging in each other's content and being motivated to recreate similar adventures, Goatrek facilitates an experience for users unlike anything else on the market.
Whether you’re looking for a close-to-home hike or a trek across the globe, Goatrek makes discovering new adventures easy by centralizing your search process. Once you have your trek locked in you’ll need someone to join you on the adventure! Goatrek maintains an internal messaging function that gives users the power to discover other trekkers in their area & invite them along.
Share your treks by pinning them directly to the app’s internal map. Whether you’re hiking, climbing or biking, Goatrek allows you to pin the route for others to discover and attach live content, tips & trek insights to the adventure.
Building a following is simple with Goatrek, as it connects directly to your social profiles. The app makes it easy to create, curate & showcase your travel content across platforms. Upload as you trek or create a blog later on - Goatrek isn’t just a resource to find hikes & a tool to connect adventure seekers, but also your very own digital travel journal!

Goatrek encourages everyone to fall in love with the planet & the outdoors, and with that love we also encourage respect for it. There’s evidence to support that the more we engage with nature, particularly as children, the more connected we feel to the planet, to climate change, and the more we want to do our part to protect it (Forbes, 2017). Despite this, we are of course aware of the impact geotagging can have on the areas we feature on our app and that’s why we are committed to returning a portion of our proceeds back into the trails our users discover to preserve, protect and cherish them.
Goatrek also actively promotes Leave No Trace’s Seven Principles, as well as the “slow travel” mindset, which is a mindset that rejects the traditional ideas of tourism and encourages you to soak in your environments, keep yourself open to new experiences & explore locally. We also have plans to introduce a carbon offset campaign.
