The company founders Walter Schmid and Herbert Würtinger had the first idea to develop their own cycle tours in 1991. The actual ‘kick off’ of the company came a year later, the first catalogue was printed and they developed their first tour, the ‘Ten Lakes Tour’.
Over the past 25 years, the ‘cycle tourism’ division has continuously expanded under the brand name ‘Eurobike’, with initial investments (Bodensee Radweg Service GmBG) and takeovers (Rückenwind Reisen GmbH).
Hiking tours have been offered under the ‘Eurohike’ brand since 2004 and sport and active holidays and family tours under the ‘Euroaktiv’ brand since 2006. In 2007, the company expanded further into Switzerland with the complete takeover of Eurotrek AG, Zurich. In 2009 this was followed by a stake in SE-Tours GmbH, Bremerhaven – now fully owed by the Eurofun Group.
