THIS IS EDELWEISS
OUR HISTORY

A LIFE-TIME DREAM BECOMES REALITY

In 1980, Coral and Werner Wachter decided to turn their hobby into a profession and founded the company Edelweiss Bike Travel. Their goal was to explore the world’s most beautiful places by motorbike in company of like-minded explorers from all over the world.

 

OPEN FOR NEW ADVENTURES

Today, 37 years later, we explored more than 80 countries with over 37,000 guests from all around the world. However, this is not the end but the beginning of new ideas. In 2015 Coral and Werner decided to expand upon their well-loved motorbike adventures by adding E-Bike trips to their product range. This decision is based on Edelweiss’s philosophy and desire to truly connect people to nature and culture of each particular country, in addition to explore every corner of our beautiful planet. Biking offers many advantages in this regard and is a lot of fun.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR ROOTS

Edelweiss’s headquarters is located in Tyrol. With that the company has remained true to its roots and is still a family-owned business. It now employs 23 people in their headquarters and more than 50 Tour guides. All of whom are absolute experts in their field and do everything they can to offer their customers an unforgettable experience every day. Our tours are compiled by travel specialists who know every road, forest and hiking trail of any particular region. The routes are carefully and extensively tested. We don’t leave anything to chance as we plan your tour. Except for the weather, which we cannot influence just yet!
