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.

"With its broad-based experience in the complex and challenging areas of accessible tourism, ENAT can support and provide advice on any major initiative in training and management, enabling destinations, tourism businesses and education organisations to meet the need for excellence in this area."    Annagrazia Laura, ENAT President.
