The Baltic Sea cycle path is around 820 km long and takes the shape of a figure eight (or the sign for 'infinity') through southern Denmark and the Baltic Sea islands. The loop crosses in Svendborg on south Fyn.
The Baltic Cycle Route is an official national cycle path, marked continuously with the symbol "N8".
The route runs almost continuously right by the coast and on natural paths.
Over the course of the route, the N8 has five ferries and eight bridges.
