The ground fog gently sweeps over the hills and the forests slowly turn into a sea of color. At the latest when the days become shorter and the mornings crisp and cold, it is clear: Autumn is just around the corner. And with it begins one of the most beautiful seasons for hiking. Before the dark season, you can get a lot of fresh air, explore new, exciting places and keep fit and healthy at the same time.

We've come up with an incentive to make it even easier for you. With our #rausundlos Outdoor Initiative, we've got a little challenge: hike at least 20 kilometres (12 mi) in a month. Once you’ve got a taste for it, simply keep going! After all, a hike in nature is the perfect combination: fresh air, quiet paths without hustle and bustle, and on foot you’re at the right speed to get to know new places in a relaxed way.

To help you with the challenge, we've picked out the perfect hiking routes to get you started. All 15 Tours in this Collection are 10 kilometres (6 mi) long. Just pick your two favourite hikes and you’ll tick off the challenge in no time!

So, do you accept our challenge? Simply download the TK app, start TK-Fit (the fitness programme in the TK app) and take part in the challenge. If you complete it, you can earn up to 1,000 points for the TK bonus programme. You can either redeem those points for future treatments that you normally have to pay for or treat yourself to our rewards.

Just one more thing: if you go on a Tour with komoot, follow us, tag us as a participant after your hike and write #rausundlos in the title – we’d love to see who takes part in the challenge here. If you prefer to share your adventures on Instagram or Facebook, you can tag us by using #rausundlos. We'll meet you in the great outdoors!
