London Peak accessible trail

“I am conscious of a soul-sense that lifts me above the narrow, cramping circumstances of my life. My physical limitations are forgotten- my world lies upward, the length and the breadth and the sweep of the heavens are mine!”

― Helen Keller

Accessible Travel is the new travel segment that has given hopes to many travel aspirants facing limitations due to some form of disability. The idea behind accessible travel is inclusive travel. Travel is a luxury that should be afforded to everyone regardless of socioeconomic status, physical limitations or age.  Many tourism boards and travel suppliers around the world are working to create barrier-free destinations, attractions and activities, transportation and other services for travelers of all abilities.

It has now become imperative from social and economic perspective to ensure such tourism infrastructure that is accessible to all. People with disabilities as well as aged people are more than willing to enjoy the accessible travel experiences and explore beautiful destinations across the world.
