• Sustainability on cycling holiday

Cycling holidays under the sign of the environment

For more than 10 years we have been dealing with the idea of sustainability. Many of our cycling holiday offers are regularly awarded the Austrian Eco-label for travel offers by the Ministry of the Environment.

  • low CO2 emission, a major contribution to fight climate change
  • overnight stays in regional enterprises with environment standards or at hotels which have been obtained the Eco-label certification
  • the regional value added
  • contact with the local population and typical nature and culture highlights

Step by step towards the climate goal

The Austrian Eco-label for our cycle tour offers is an award for our responsible, environmentally and socially responsible travel products. It is therefore a matter of course for us to integrate environmental and climate protection as an ongoing process in our everyday work.

Cycling holiday catalogue

  • Since 2019, we have dispensed with the inexpensive foil packaging when sending out the catalogue and use paper envelopes instead.
  • The Cycling Holidays 2023 catalogue was printed climate-neutrally for the first time, which means that all CO2 emissions from the print job are offset again. Thus, the overall impact on the global climate remains neutral.
  • And that's not all. We replaced the usual glossy cover with a more climate-friendly cardboard variant. Although the colours do not shine in all their glory, they are still beautiful to look at and much more environmentally friendly.

Climate-fit office

The next logical step is to make our everyday office life climate-friendly. This includes energy-saving measures as well as resource-saving behaviour (recycling and upcycling) and personal mobility behaviour (bicycle and public transport instead of car). 
Our goal for 2023 is already within reach: we are joining forces and resources to become a Climate Alliance company.

OÖ Touristik GmbH

In 1990 the OÖ Touristik performed a pioneering work on the sector of organised cycle holidays: the first bookable cycle tour along the Danube including luggage transfer. Already a year later we offered the first group tours. Over the years the offers of the cycle holidays has expanded throughout Europe and are as popular as ever. During the last 30 years we have expanded the portfolio on mountain bike tours, cycle holidays by bike and boat, group tours and hiking holidays as well as winter and wellness holidays. The organisation and handling of international congresses and events meanwhile adds to the successful enterprise sections.
