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.
"Enabling access to tourism is our priority.... Accessible tourism is not a niche market; it's a demographic explosion and we will all feel the effects. We have to improve access now." Lilian Müller, ENAT President
ENAT Members can be found in more than 30 countries and 5 continents. Development activities are strong on many fronts such as destination management, marketing, transport, tour operations, education, training, standards and services. By joining ENAT, organisations can be assured of keeping up-to-date with the latest developments and helping to shape the future of accessible tourism in Europe and around the world. Investment in accessible tourism measures can bring high returns, also when the market in general is weakening.
If you are working in accessible tourism or want to be part of it, we warmly invite you to join ENAT.
