About us

The Apeldoorn Four-Day-Walking Event is being organised since 2015 by the Stichting Internationale Vierdaagse Apeldoorn (International Apeldoorn Four-Day-Walking Event Foundation). In the 61 years previous the Nederlandse Wandelsport Bond (Dutch Walking association) organised this event. This association merged with the Royal Dutch Walking association on January 1st, 2015. On that same date the foundation came into existence.

The organisation of the Cantharel International Apeldoorn Four-Day-Walking Event is completely in the hands of volunteers. The 7-person board is assisted during the event by dozens of volunteers: at the registration station, traffic control, communication, on the routes and as medical support.  All our volunteers have only one goal: to let you, as participant, have four enjoyable and relaxed hiking days on the Veluwe.
