ViewRanger Partners With Terrain Edition for Topographic Maps of Greece

Right in time for the European summer vacation period, we are delighted to have partnered with Terrain Edition, the leading cartographic publisher in Greece, to bring detailed topographic maps of the Greek Islands to ViewRanger.  New detailed topographic maps for all of the islands are available now to download on to your Apple iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone or tablet, Symbian smartphones, and the Blackberry Playbook.

There are many walking guides to the Greek Islands, but access to detailed maps has made it difficult to use them with confidence as the region is often mountainous and sparsely populated. ViewRanger provides reassurance for walkers, it allows you to download a quality map on to your phone before you set off and the GPS function allows you to see your location at all times. With ViewRanger both the map and GPS feature will work without the need for a mobile phone signal

The Greek Islands vary enormously and if you enjoy exploring then many have scenic trails, romantic walled paths and historical ‘moni-paths’, which originated as walks to the monastery.

The Greek Tourist Board has welcomed ViewRanger’s initiative and comments: “This year with the Olympic Games taking place in London, there is the added reason to visit Greece and see where it all began. As well as the history and beauty, you will find a welcome that is warmer than ever.  We look forward to seeing you there.”

The Greek Tourist Board is keen to encourage more visitors, and the weather remains warm until the end of October.  A spokesperson added:

“Over the years millions of Brits have visited Greece for its combination of stunning beaches and countryside, delicious food, fascinating history and welcoming culture.

“Despite the situation we find ourselves in today, none of the above has changed. Greece continues to represent a wonderful destination, offering a wide variety of holidays at great value for money.”
