North Sea Cycle Route - National Route 1 (562,52 km)
Rudbøl - Skagen
No other national route in Denmark contains contrasts as great as the West Coast Route. To the south, rich, flat marshland. To the north, steep and dramatic sand dunes. The West Coast Route is the story of man and sea. A 560-kilometre-long story about life on nature's terms.
Approx. 70% of the route is paved, but long sections consist of sand and gravel tracks. We recommend solid tyres.
The West Coast Route forms part of the European EuroVelo Route no. 12 which is part of the North Sea Cycle Route running from Scotland to Norway. The route is the longest cycle route in the world and runs through seven countries. Find out much more about the North Sea Cycle Route atLearn more ...
