Our history

Our history

A lifelong dream comes true

In 1980, Coral and Werner Wachter made the decision to turn their hobby into a profession and founded the company Edelweiss Bike Travel. Together with people from all over the world, they wanted to explore the most beautiful regions of the earth on motorcycles – that was their goal.

Open to new adventures

Today, more than 40 years later, we have welcomed nearly 50,000 guests in over 80 countries around the world. However, that’s not the end of the story yet – Coral and Werner hadn't expected that.

The decision in 2015 to also venture into e-bike travel, in addition to motorcycle tours, is based on Edelweiss' philosophy of inspiring people for nature and culture and wanting to explore every corner of the earth together.

Cycling offers many advantages in this regard and is also a lot of fun.

Remaining true to our roots

With its headquarters in Tyrol, the company has remained true to its roots over the years and is still family-owned.

Edelweiss now has over 20 employees and more than 70 tour guides, all of whom are absolute experts in their field and work tirelessly every day to provide their customers with an unforgettable experience.

Our tours are curated by travel specialists who know every road, forest path, and hiking trail in the region. The routes are then extensively tested because when planning your tour, we leave nothing to chance – except for the weather, we're not quite there yet!
