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.

In 2012, Radreisefreunde GmbH, Vienna, was founded as a specialist for tailor-made tours outside of the standard range. In the same year, the majority of shares in Espace Randonnèe SARL in Haguenau, France, were purchased. 2013 brought shares in the Bike Guide Sweden AB, Stockholm. With the takeover of the majority share in Radweg-Reisen GmbH, Konstanz, the position as ‘number 1’ of the bike and active travel tour operators in Europe was achieved. In 2016 the company took over the majority share in Bike Guide Sweden AB. A year later, the majority takeover of Pedalo Touristik GmbH followed. In 2020, Active on Holiday BV was founded in the Netherlands and the majority share of Bering Travel, Denmark was purchased. Bike Sweden was renamed Active Scandinvia AB.

Right from the start the top priority has been of offer all guests of the Eurofun Group a relaxing and memorable holiday and to reliably support all partners, and this hasn’t changed. We always have the drive to preserve the tried and tested, to develop something new and to continuously improve the range and quality of our tours.
