What is Destination Everywhere?

Designing a new way to do accessible travel.

Launched in 2018, Destination Everywhere was first a platform to find tours and packaged holidays, created by experienced accessible travel tour operators and travel agencies. In two years, we built a network of over 20 partners and destinations all around the world.

In 2020, when the world locked down, we produced online Masterclasses, virtual tours with local guides, an accessible travel podcast and online content to keep talking about accessible travel, even from our couches. Then, in 2022 thanks The Break Fellowship, a ground breaking accelerator program for women entrepreneurs, the concept for WheelTribe was born and fostered.

In 2024 we will launch the WheelTribe platform, a community-based travel platform for the independent travellers. A platform created by and for people with disabilities and their allies. Curious?

Our values

Since the beginning, our work has been focused on promoting accessible travel for and by people with disabilities and their allies.
We are a “not only for profit” enterprise.
Also, we support a form of travel that is respectful of the destinations, their inhabitants, the environment – and we support local businesses and expertise.
We work exclusively with companies and organisations whose values we share, such as accessible travel initiative Accessible Indonesia. A part of their team is portrayed in the picture illustrating this paragraph, with two young ladies carrying a ramp to take travellers to visit a temple.
