Hafnarfjörður´s orienteering game has begun for the 27th time. The goal of this popular game is to lead participants all over the land of Hafnarfjörður to enjoy outdoor activities and nature together. 27 signs can be found all over Hafnarfjörður´s land. The game takes place from June to September each year, now until September the 24th.

Hönnunarhúsið ehf. publishes the game in collaboration with the health town of Hafnarfjörður and has done so since 2006. Guðni Gíslason, owner of Hönnunarhúsið ehf. and a scout, released the game for the 17th time, but the game is, as mentioned earlier, being released for the 27th time this year. It can be said that 27 is a bit of a signature number in the game this year, because the orienteering marks are 27 as usual and are located all over the townland and the game is now being held for the 27th time! As stated on the orienteering game´s website, archaeologist Ómar Smári Ármannsson has compiled entertaining material about each and every one of the sites. The hunt therefore has an upbeat storytelling atmosphere this year and people who are afraid of the dark are encouraged to finish the game before it starts to get dark in the autumn!
