From natural sand dunes to the Delta Works, a masterpiece of engineering - cycling along the North Sea coast, you can fully appreciate the ingenuity and effort the Dutch have put into protecting their low-lying country from the sea. Get off your bike to enjoy the old fishing villages and seaside resorts, or take a walk along the sandy beaches. And if the weather’s good, take a dip in the sea.

Together the LF1 and the LF10 form the Dutch Coastal Route - the Dutch section of the North Sea Cycle Route (EuroVelo12).

Combine this long-distance route with a day trip. We recommend:
