Welcome

Welcome to the Website of ENAT - the European Network for Accessible Tourism.

ENAT is a non-profit association for organisations that aim to be 'frontrunners' in the study, promotion and practice of accessible tourism. You may be an expert or new to the area - in either case you are welcome!

By leveraging the knowledge and experience of the network, our members are improving the accessibility of tourist information, transport, infrastructure, design and service for visitors with all kinds of access needs, providing models of excellence in accessible tourism for the whole of the tourism industry.

President's Message

Photo of Anna Grazia Laura, ENAT President"One of the major challenges that we now face is to establish a long-term funding strategy at EU level in order to foster innovation in tourism accessibility and implement improvements within EU Member States and across national boundaries. Indeed, we must make all responsible bodies understand that the sooner we all solve this major problem, the sooner the Tourism for All market could develop positively, for the benefit of the tourism industry, the destinations and the employment opportunities".    Annagrazia Laura, ENAT President, July 2015.
