Getting outside and active with the family is often a challenge, especially with endless screens to entertain everyone. However, nothing is more rewarding than cycling or walking with the family outdoors. Many memorable moments await you out on the cycle paths and walking trails throughout Europe. Ice creams, picnics and little treats always taste better after you have earned them!
Our active family holidays have been selected with the needs of children and young adults in mind. We ask questions like is the route is family-friendly or which hotels are best for children. We offer child-specific bikes on our family cycle tours and our walking tours offer just the right amount of effort for young feet!

Fully-organised active family holidays are the best way to walk or hike with your family. We take care of so much of the organisation that you just need to arrive at the first hotel and we will do the rest.
All of our active family holidays have shared features including family-friendly routes that are with minimal inclines and follow traffic-free routes such as the Danube Cycle Path or hiking in the South Tyrol. We also make sure that the stages are not too long and can be conquered by small feet or small wheels!
We've highlighted several reasons why you should go on a self-guided family-friendly cycling or walking holiday in our overview video.
If you have never been on a hiking holiday like this before or are used to organising everything yourself from planning the route to carrying your tent, our short video will give you an idea of what to expect on a walking tour with us.
For active families
Our active holidays with children bring families closer to nature through activities during the day.
Our cycling and walking holidays range from utterly relaxed to pushing individual boundaries. We ensure that every participant receives the best experience to suit their abilities, but there might be times when you need to go outside your comfort zone. All of our activities are human-powered too!
Family time together
Due to the increasingly hectic pace of our daily lives, enjoying shared experiences as a family is becoming a rarity. With our family holidays, we want to change that with our active holidays that give families a chance to experience organised activities in the outdoors together to create shared memories.
Planning taken care of
For many of our included activities, we leave our guests free to choose what they would like to do that day. All essential information is provided in your detailed travel documents and questions can be asked before your arrival.
Nature and sustainability
We take our sustainability efforts seriously. We are proud that our active holidays hardly use any fossil fuels and only have a small impact on the environment. Except for the outward and return journeys which are organised by customers, our trips have very low CO2 emissions.
We feature three different holiday types for our active holidays. On individual tours, you have complete freedom to organise the day as you wish. We offer luggage transport for our cycling and hiking tours and your family’s bag will arrive at the next hotel each day.
