Further your horizons with Active on Holiday

Founded in the Netherlands in 2020, Active on Holiday has quickly grown to become a leading provider of active holidays in a country that is famous for bike usage and enjoying various active pursuits.

In late 2022, we launched a dedicated English version of Active on Holiday to offer a great selection of European cycling, walking and family holidays to English-speaking customers. We passionately believe that there is no better way to discover a destination than on one of our cycling or walking holidays.

If you are new to the idea of a cycling or walking holiday, then we encourage everyone to consider taking an active holiday on foot or by bike for the first time. There is nothing more rewarding than completing a route or trail, but without the stress of route planning, hiring bikes or carrying your bags. 

We have carefully selected a choice of cycling and walking tours that offer a combination of excellent routes in easy-to-reach European destinations that aren’t too far away from major airports or rail hubs. We also ensure that our cycle or walking tours include stop-offs in well-known places so you can take the time to get to know the area that you are exploring.

Consumer protection

Insurance for travel agents to protect customer payments following EU directives.

Active on Holiday BV is part of the Eurofun Group based in Austria and is a reseller of the trips they offer. The trips are therefore covered by the insurance taken out by Eurofun, which is valid in the various European member states.

In the event of bankruptcy of the tour operator or - in some Member States - the travel agent, payments already made will be refunded. If the tour operator, or if applicable the selling travel agent, go bankrupt after the start of the package and the transport is part of this package, this insurance will ensure that passengers are returned.
