Stolpejakten or ‘post hunt’ blends sport, outdoor recreation, public health and culture. It involves finding posts placed around the area: some close to cultural monuments, others by busy traffic intersections. All the posts in Grenland can be reached by bus, and most are also accessible to wheelchair users. The distance between the posts within each local area is fairly short.
To find the posts, you can either download an app to your mobile or get hold of a paper map. These are available at the municipalities’ service bureaus and a number of other places.
You can also register groups, such as workplaces, school classes or friends, and compete to see who finds the most posts.
How it works
1. Find posts
The first thing you need to take part in the post hunt is the map showing the location of the posts. The map exists in two versions: a physical map folder or electronic map integrated in the app. The map brochure is available free of charge from various outlets and institutions (this varies from municipality to municipality). Some municipalities also distribute the map folders to every household. The post hunt app can be downloaded free from Google Play or App Store. Once you have a map, you’re ready to get out and start finding posts! There are lots to find, split into four different levels of difficulty* – can you find them all?
*The levels of difficulty are as follows:
GREEN – very easy, can be reached by bike and wheelchair
BLUE – easy
RED – medium
BLACK – difficult
It’s up to you how many posts you find. In any case, it’s fun to have of an overview of how you’re doing! You can do this by registering the posts, either electronically using the app or via our online portal, or manually by filling them in directly on the map. You’ll need an account to register electronically. You can create one here. It’s free and always will be!
How to register the posts: A code and a QR code are imprinted on each post. To register manually, note the code directly on the map, which you can send in at a later stage. To register electronically, use either the ‘Stolpejakten’ app to scan the post’s QR code or plot the code in your account on this page (by logging on in the menu on the right). It’s so easy!
3. Win prizes!
Each post you register gives you an entry in the draw to win great prizes from our partners in your local area. In other words, your chances of winning increase based on the number of posts you register. By registering the posts electronically, you’ll automatically be entered in the draw. If you register manually, you’ll need to send the map to the address indicated.
