Open polder land, sunken villages, tidal wetlands - the LF10 takes you all along the Dutch Wadden Sea coast.

Please note that from 1 April 2019 to 1 April 2022 the Afsluitdijk will be closed for cyclists. A free bus service for you and your bike will be provided. For up-to-date information and alternative cycle route, see: Afsluitdijk closed for cyclists.
Dykes and open polder land stretch out forever along this part of the coast. The former island of Wieringen and National Park Lauwersmeer add some welcome variation. In the fishing villages of Harlingen and Lauwersoog you can take a ferry to one of the Wadden Islands. You also get to cycle over the Afsluitdijk, an impressive dam of 32 kilometres that closes off the former Zuiderzee - it’s something you should experience at least once in your life!
Combine this long-distance route with a day trip. We recommend:
