Edinburgh Accessible Travel Packages

Edinburgh Accessible Holiday – Visiting Edinburgh can be challenging for disabled tourists because of its hilly nature, but Sage Traveling has just made it easier.  Our disabled travel experts have mapped out the slope of the streets throughout central Edinburgh, enabling wheelchair users to roll downhill throughout their accessible holiday in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a beautiful medieval city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  The city was founded over 800 years ago on a volcanic crag. Edinburgh Castle now sits at the pinnacle of that crag with the Royal Mile street going downhill to the east.  The Georgian “New Town” lies below to the north and is much flatter than the Old Town near the castle but still has some slopes.  Sage Traveling has mapped out all of the inclines throughout the Old Town and New Town for your Edinburgh accessible holiday.

Sage Traveling can provide you with a customized, hassle-free, accessible holiday in Edinburgh. Sage Traveling experts have done extensive first-hand research on accessibility at Edinburgh hotels, tourist attractions, and transportation. Sage Traveling will use this extensive accessibility knowledge to create a vacation customized to your individual abilities, energy level, and interests.
