The North Sea Trail will circumvent the whole of North Sea, from Scotland to Norway. Most countries join the effort: United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Patches of this long distance path are not finished yet. Currently, two countries do offer a continuous coastal trail: The Netherlands and Denmark.

The coastal area's along the North Sea are beautiful, full of history, rich of birdlife.

The trail uses other national trails, and more information can be found on our website on these trail pages.

  • Störtebekerweg, Leer - Wilhelmshaven
  • Jadeweg, Wilhelmshaven - Petershörn
  • Butjadingerweg, Petershörn – Blexen / Bremerhaven
