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 PresidentThe 27th of September 2016, World Tourism Day, is particularly significant since, for the first time, the theme of the day is Accessible Tourism. This is having a great impact on the tourism world and on each country and tourism organisation who, in many destination areas, have organised a special event to mark the occasion. This demonstrates how significant the issue of Accessible Tourism has become all over the world.  Annagrazia Laura, ENAT President, 27 September, 2016.
