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.

As people I’ve worked with I wanted to let you know that we’re currently trying to raise £1000.00 to buy a flying video drone so that we can produce aerial footage of our walks. The drone would have a massive impact on future films we make and give disabled people a different insight into the walks.
