In English - how it works

This is hitta ut

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 25 000 copies and is delivered to all households in Karlshamn. Hittaut is arranged by the sports association Stigmännen Karlshamns orienteringsklubb.

Hittaut runs from the beginning of April throughout 4 November 2021. The purpose is to find checkpoints in Karlshamn and its surroundings. You can take it in your own pace, it can be a slow walk or a challenging trail run.

The location of each checkpoint is marked in terrain with an aluminum pole. The pole is marked with the hittaut logo, as well as a letter. Once you have visited a checkpoint, you can log on to and enter the letter you found and will have a chance to win prizes.

Our webpage and app At more information is available. Also, the map and up-to-date information for the hittaut participants is found here. Furthermore, an app is available (Google Play/Appstore) in which you can find navigation assistance and also register your checkpoint code on the spot.

More checkpoints every month. The checkpoints marked on the map will be available in nature during the whole period. Also, seven new checkpoints are announced every month.

hittaut - That’s how it works

   On this map there are numbered checkpoints (colored rings). Each checkpoint is marked in the forest with a pole.

  You are supposed to visit these checkpoints with the help of the map and/or our app and take down the letter of the checkpoint.


When you have visited your first checkpoints, go to our homepage and register yourself. Every checkpoint you register will become a lottery ticket and you can win prizes during the project period, may-october. 

  At the turn of each month we will present new checkpoints at our homepage.


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 want 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.
