The already 'Strand6daagse' (Six Days at the Beach), is a six day lasting hiking and camping trek along the beach from Hoek van Holland to Den Helder. Since 1959, this trek of 140 kilometers is organized every year in the last week of July. The length of each stage of the trek varies daily. For three days the hikers walk about thirty kilometers a day, two days around the twenty kilometers and the final day a little less than ten kilometers.
The tour consists of six stages. The beach goers will put up their tents five times: to spend the night in Wassenaar, Noordwijk, Velsen-Noord, Egmond aan Zee and Callantsoog. On the last day, on Saturday afternoon, the participants receive a festive welcome in Den Helder.
