Madrid, 19 May 2021. This publication is the result of the work carried out in the last months by the Working Group on Accessible Tourism, coordinated by the Affiliate Members Department and chaired by the Spanish Network for Accessible Tourism (Red Estable).

It addresses the relative lack of research carried out into the topic of accessibility in nature areas to date.

Through multiple cases studies and examples of best practices drawn from UNWTO Affiliate Members and other organizations, it illustrates different ways of designing and implementing projects aimed at improving accessibility in nature and so enabling persons with disabilities to travel to these areas.

Aimed at all tourism stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, including destination management organizations, tourism businesses, NGOs and other tourism entities, this publication also provides relevant conclusions on how to identify accessible tourism products and services in natural areas.

The examples can inspire others to launch similar initiatives aimed at achieving a greater inclusivity and making nature accessible to all.
