In English - how it works

hittaut 2021 starts on April 1st!

We have allocated a lot of checkpoints all around Strömstad. Each of them marked with a tree pole, ca 50 cm high. The idea is to find the checkpoints with the help of the map and/or GPS. You can use your mobile phone and the webmap, the Hittaut app 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. 

Any questions? Please contact us at 


On the map there will be in total 90 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

Here you can find the dates when we release new checkpoints.

  • 1 April: 35 checkpoints in Tjärndalen (close to Lagunen camping) and around our club house Kasen
  • 1 June: 15 new checkpoints in the town centre
  • 1 July: 20 new checkpoints in Röd-Erlandseröd, east/south-east of the town centre.
  • 19 September: 10 last new checkpoints in Flöghult


Here you can pick up your own paper map::

  • Tourist Information, Norra hamnen
  • Lagunen Camping
  • Town hall ("Stadshuset")
  • EttochANNat, Södra Hamngatan 18


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 finding.

The hittaut "pole"

At every checkpoint there is a half 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 or in the app.
