The project's goal was to develop a hiking tourism route along the Baltic Sea coastline in Estonia and Latvia. The route stretches along the Southwest coastline in Latvia, starting from the border with Lithuania through Latvia to Laane county region in Estonia and further to the capital of Estonia – Tallinn. The hiking route is a sustainable tourism product that highlights cultural and natural heritage along the Baltic's beautiful coastline.

The Latvian name of the trail is J?rtaka, the Estonian – Ranniku Matkarada. The route includes more than 500 natural, cultural and historical objects, it is available to everyone and the 60-day planned itinerary can also be done in parts. Baltic Coastal Hiking route has been completed, it’s being actively used by local hikers and travellers from abroad.
