In English - how it works

It starts in May and runs to the end of October.

We have placed many checkpoints all around Timrå. The idea is to find the checkpoints with the help of the map and/or GPS. You can use your cellphone 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. 

Any questions? Contact us at Timrå SOK


On the map there will be in total 60 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 checkpoints. 

Checkpoints releases, approx 10-15 chp each time.

Check also hitta ut Sundsvall  to find out were you can pick up sundsvall´s map.

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

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 the dark.
