MSC App – Plan My Walk

New Zealand Mountain Safety Council 

The Award is proud to partner with New Zealand Mountain Safety Council to share resources and safety tips for your outdoor adventures. New Zealand Mountain Safety Council’s vision is safer places, safer activities, safer people. Visit their website to browse all their handy resources.

In their mission to enable people to enjoy their outdoor recreation activities safely, they have developed and launched the Plan My Walk app. A free app that allows you to explore track options around Aotearoa, ensure you tick off all essential gear items, receive weather alerts and read about how others found the experience of any tramp on the database.

We highly recommend you use Plan My Walk on your Adventurous Journey to ensure you have the tools to stay safe and have the best possible experience in the outdoors.
