About Us

Who We Are

We’re born from Trek bikes, and that means everything that makes Trek great is in our genes, too. Like the passion to provide unparalleled hospitality. To make adventure accessible for every traveler. And to do things right, in the right way.

Twenty years ago, we were founded with a passion to elevate every aspect of your vacation into a series of unforgettable moments, delivered with exceptional hospitality by our talented team, from the moment you book to after you arrive home.

Why Active Vacations?

This is how the world was meant to be seen. We believe that the world is built for adventure. And when you’re riding or hiking the views look brighter, the sounds clearer, and the memories are more vivid. You feel part of the landscape and immersed in the culture. Active travel is pure magic; not for where it can take you, but for what it can reveal. We believe it, and we’re here to show you.
