    Info from

    nieuwpoort.be/nieuwpoort/vie...

    Take the train to Ostend (just over 2 hours) or De Panne (a bit longer). Times, details and fares in English here;

    Then take the tram to Nieuwpoort. Info in English here:

    Train is not the best option for Ieper to Nieuwpoort, as it is a long way round.
    Go to
    hari.b-rail.be/HAFAS/bin/que...
    Make sure you select "all products" for the type transportation (defaults to trains only) and "all stops" for the type of destinations (default is train stations only). Then just enter Ieper and Nieuwpoort. Fastest Ieper to Nieuwpoort is about 1 1/2 hours by bus, but it regularly takes 2 hours.

    Using buses is the most practical way. With 1 change in Veurne or Diksmuide.
    What a pity you're not doing this in summer time! All you would need to do would be renting a bicycle and cycling along the Ieperlee Canal, the river IJzer and/or an old railway track. Quite a straight line!
