ViewRanger has joined the growing list of outdoor brands encouraging people to ignore Black Friday madness and #optoutside this Thanksgiving weekend by providing free access to its premium maps in the United States.
The award-winning GPS smartphone app is offering unlimited access to its full range of highly-detailed US topographic maps for four days, and has created a free collection of 101 Great Holiday Hikes to provide inspiration for anyone wanting to get outside and explore instead of shopping for deals.
ViewRanger’s premium digital map bundle – which includes four maps layers at 1:24,000 scale covering the the US including Alaska and Hawaii – usually costs $20 but will be available to use free of charge from November 23-26. The maps include features designed specifically for outdoor enthusiasts, such as peak names, detailed terrain and popular hiking trails, and can be saved offline to work without phone and data signals.
“We are so thankful for the millions of explorers who use ViewRanger and for the spectacular public lands dotted across the country,” said Kris Wagner, ViewRanger marketing director. “We hope you can use our maps to get out this holiday weekend and enjoy the time by yourself, with friends, or with family.”
Looking for inspiration? ViewRanger has curated 101 Great Holiday Hikes for anyone wanting to explore short trails near major US cities this Thanksgiving Weekend. From a lakefront trail in Chicago to the Sunset Trail on San Francisco's Angel Island, these interactive route guides offer all the inspiration needed to #optoutside and explore somewhere new.
