The total length of the trail is 2,220 kilometres, about 1,380 miles. The trail is modulated to an average walker, so each day generally is between 20 and 25 kilometres. Reckon if you're a thru-hiker about 100 days of walking.

This long-distance trail follows the coastline of former Frisia. It explores the places that Frisians roamed and exploited according to the old sources.

The coastline is essentially a delta. The Nile Delta but in a more humid climate. Yes, Frisia is a delta. Of rivers, creeks, dunes, beaches, (former) peat lands, (former) woods and salt marshes. The delta is so huge that it drains a large part of the European Continent and it therefore spans several countries.

Following the very nature of the coast, we decided to split the hike by the rivers that subdivide the delta, and historically subdivided the different regions of Frisia. In total there are 9 stages to cover.
