Coast trail around the Baltic Sea project. Connecting the coastal trails around the Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea is the world’s largest brackish water sea, with a unique and very challenged ecology. The Baltic Sea is situated in Northern Europe, between Finland, Estland, Letland, Lithuania, Russia, Poland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. The Baltic Sea has a lot of rivers feeding it, and they keep a delicate balance with the salty Atlantic Ocean, that also lead waters into it.  The coastlines around the Baltic Sea all have more or less connected coast trails, that might make it possible to wake all around the Baltic Sea, along it’s beaches, cliffs and rocky shorelines. This project is looking at this as a future long distance hiking trail, passing through nine countries and many different landscapes and cultures 

The Baltic Sea Trail project is under concept development in 2017
