International Four Days Marches Apeldoorn

68th edition 4 Days of Apeldoorn

The next edition of the Four Days Marches in Apeldoorn is from Tuesday 11 to Friday 14 July 2023. This Four Days Marches is not only enjoyable for seasoned hikers but also for beginners. Moreover, young and old walk along. Why? Because participants do not necessarily have to walk for four days and can choose from short and long distances. There is a choice of different distances of 12, 20, 30, or 40 kilometers per day. And hikers can also participate for one, two or three days.
In short: a special Four Days Marches with a beautiful amalgamation of various hiking enthusiasts!

Registration for the 68th Cantharel International 4 Days Apeldoorn is not yet open!

Routes rich in nature

As participant of the Apeldoorn four-day-walking event you are dished an appealing route each day. From the start you walk right into nature. Depending on the distance you picked, you will walk through woods, across heaths and along sand drifts. Besides strolling through various villages of the Veluwe you will walk along many sights of Apeldoorn and surroundings. Nature reserve Berg en Bos, Palace Het Loo, the man-made springs: you will encounter it all during the four walks.



When you are planning to participate in a one- or multiple day hike, it is wise to start the preparations on time. By this,  you can prevent that the walking fun changes into a disappointment. We advise to build up the length of your hikes easefully and regularly. This ensures a pleasant and enjoyable result!


Fantastic atmosphere

The Apeldoorn Four-day-walking event, which is organised completely by volunteers, is known for the beautiful nature and great atmosphere. At the resting points and at the start and finish the participants are welcomed with a varied music programme. The local farmers’ market, on the last hiking day, offers even more ambiance.
