What awaits you?

You will start your walk in Mersrags, where, along the sea, you will reach a church, a lighthouse and several capes. After that, the road will lead you back to Mersrags and at the end of the walk you will be able to watch the ship traffic in the Mersrags port. 

Prepare for a full-day hike – with comfortable shoes and layered clothing. Also, be sure to bring food for a picnic, which you can enjoy at one of the bird towers or at the end of the hike.
