Best holiday ideas for the differently-abled travellers
Even though travelling is not easy for those who are differently-abled, they should go on vacations just like everybody else. And, to help you in this case, we present to you some holiday ideas that will awaken your inner wanderer.
Although the travel industry is reaching new heights across the globe, they fail constantly to serve the differently-abled lot. Be it in terms of flying, travelling, or experiencing the places, they fail to do so because of the poor travel services offered. In fact, it is no more than a nightmare to travel too far for these travellers because not much has been done in this vertical of the travel sector. But, do you know, yet there are few places in the world where specially-abled people can travel comfortably without facing any sort of pain.
There are a few places that offer you with much comfort if you are differently-abled. Be it river cruising or wheelchair safari, you would be able to do it all without an ounce of discomfort. It even makes travelling easier for you even if you are restricted to wheelchairs. So, here is a list of four holiday ideas that will let you enjoy the world and satisfy your inner wanderer without making you feel uncomfortable. So, without any further ado, let’s get started with the list, shall we?
1. Sailing holidays
You must be thinking that how can you ascend a tall-ship mast in a wheelchair? Well, you must stop worrying about it now as, if you love adventure, then you can certainly enjoy it as well. In Antigua, an island in the West Indies, a differently-abled is paired up with an abled person and then they are made to sail together.
2. Wheelchair safari
The best countries that offer wheelchair safari are India, Botswana, South Africa, and Kenya. These trips usually are 7-12 nights long and include game drives as well.
3. River cruising
The Netherlands offers you with not just river cruises that are wheelchair-friendly but also group tours and villa holidays. The river cruise is a 5-night affair and it takes you to the historic towns of Harlingen, Zaandam, and Nijmegen. The cruise also has well-adapted bathrooms and easily accessible cabins.
4. Group trips for the blind travellers
A travel company, founded by a blind entrepreneur, Amar Latif, in Amsterdam takes 60 blind groups every year on a 4-day city break in Amsterdam. Not only that, the company offers beach breaks, staycations, and activity holidays as well.
So, with that, the list comes to an end. Now, make sure that you spread the word and let the differently-abled travellers know about these ideas so that they can also holiday to their heart’s content.
