Catalogue of accessible tourism products in Greenways in Spain and Portugal
The present Greenways4ALL Catalogue includes a total of 10 products of Accessible Tourism around Greenways from Spain and Portugal.
Greenways, which are non-motorized routes that mostly make use of disused railway lines, are probably the mostaccessible routes providing access tonature and open-air leisure activitiesfor everyone, including persons with disability.
However, and with few exceptions, despite the potential that the tourist destinations of greenways enjoy, travelers are not offered the facilities to acquire a comprehensive and accessible tourism product based on greenways. This is because the offer of the various resources making up a trip are neither structured nor organized.
With this project, whose full name is “Accessible Tourism on European Greenways: Greenways For All” we aim to move forward towards a product which lever ages the accessibility value chain, moving from an accessible route to an accessible trip or experience. Accessibility will therefore be the element common to all the resources making up tourism product: travel the greenway, eat at local restaurants, stay in the immediate vicinity of the greenway, visit museums, or do some shopping, among other options.
Greenways4ALL will help improve accessibility to and around greenways, the quality of the tourism supply aimed at persons with disability, and the dissemination of greenway resources as infrastructures for everyone.
Sleep in a train car, watch the stars in the Sierra Morena skies, ride through the Vías Verdes de Andalucía in hand-bike, watch the vultures in freedom, enjoy the villages and landscapes of the Sierra de Cadiz, have a meal in the old train stations or enjoy the wine in the portuguese region of Dao Lafoes, these are just some of the experiences which these products offer.
Discover them, enjoy them!
