The trail along the Baltic Sea follows the Eurovelo 10 trail, which circles the Baltic Sea. The entire trail is over 8000 km in total. The Polish part of the route covers almost 600 km. This is the quintessence of the Polish Baltic coast. In Poland, it begins on the island of Wolin and ends at the border with the Kaliningrad District in Braniewo.
The trail runs through the three provinces in Polish: West-Pomeranian, Pomeranian and Warmia-Mazury. It is run along the Baltic coast and the Vistula Lagoon through the most interesting attractions of its coast.
The regions along the EV10 trail are rich in natural values and tourist attractions. The route connects the Lighthouse Trail on several sections. On the route, the cyclist will visit larger cities such as Gdańsk or Kołobrzeg and small port towns.
