In English - how it works

hittaut starts in May 2021

We have placed a lot of checkpoints all around Luleå. The idea is to find the checkpoints with the help of the map and/or GPS. You can use your mobile 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, beautiful city and seaside. 

Any questions? Please contact us at


On the map there will be more than 100 numbered checkpoints with color-codes explaining the difficulty.

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

  • Blue = 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. 

Checkpoints releases

There will be three checkpoint releases during the season, at July 1st, August 1st and September 1st. Those checkpoints are already on the map but will not be at the physical location until the release. They are marked with JUL, AUG and SEP on the map.


Most people living in Luleå city will get a map in their mail on May 28th. They can also be picked up during the season at a number of places in Luleå. The list will be added when the season starts.


When you have found your first checkpoint, or even before you start, you can register on these web pages. Every checkpoint you register (with the letter-code) on this site, 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 hittaut "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.
