In English - how it works

Starts in May and run to the end of October.

We have placed a lot of checkpoints all around Borås. The idea is to find the checkpoints with the help of the map and/or GPS. You can use your mobile and and the webmap or the physical map that you get for free. 

We want more people to accept the challenge to move about and discover our breathtaking nature and archipelago. 

The map in your hand is printed in 20 000 copies and is delivered to all households in Karlshamn. Hittaut is arranged by the sports association Stigmännen Karlshamns orienteringsklubb.

On the map there are will be in total 80 numbered checkpoints with color-codes explaining the difficulty.

  • Green = easy (accessible with bike, pram or wheelchair)

  • Yellow = medium

  • Red = medium to difficult

  • Black = difficult

Some of the checkpoints will only be available later on in the project, called "checkpointssläpp = checkpoint release", see below for dates and which checkpoints. 

New checkpoints every month

Evey month we release seven new checkpoints:

  • 1st of June 
  • 1st of July

When you have found your first checkpoint, or even before you start, you can register here on Every checkpoint you register (with the letter-code) on the homepage, becomes a lottery ticket and you can win prizes. It's valuable for the project that you register, since both we and our sponsors whant to know how many checkpoint finders we'll be.

The hitta ut "pole"

At every checkpoint there is a one meter high "hittaut"-pole.

On the pole there are Hittaut-decals, the checkpoint-number and the code. Note the code (two letters) and register it on the homepage. There are also reflexes on the pole, so you will be able to find your checkpoint even in he dark.
