About 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.

Our advantages at a glance:

  • Specialist in cycling and walking holidays

  • All active holidays organised from A to Z

  • The most beautiful routes are mapped out for you

  • Regular quality checks by our team

  • Detailed travel documents and directions

  • All holidays include luggage transport

  • Personal welcome briefing in your holiday destination

We look forward to welcoming you on one of our active holidays very soon. Our expert team will be on hand to answer any questions that you may have about going on an active holiday for the first time or to suggest routes for somewhere new.

Edwin Schollen

Edwin Schollen, Managing Director

Since 2020, Edwin has been building up the active travel brand ‘Active on Holiday’ in the Netherlands.

Edwin is responsible for the day-to-day management. He has more than 30 years of experience in the travel industry and has personally experienced large parts of the world. His experience in the (river) cruise sector is also important in the many sailing and cycling holidays that Active on Holiday offers. In his spare time, he likes to walk with his dog through the beautiful nature reserves that are to be found in the Netherlands.

In recent years, together with his family, he has come to love active holidays more and more including cycling, walking and boating tours. His favourite destination? Difficult choice, but if one stands out, it is the Salzkammergut Lakes in Austria.
