Tuscany’s natural wonders have always been a well of inspiration for arts and culture, and today we return to the source and engage with a place that has captured hearts for thousands of years: rolling hills peppered with groves of trees, stone houses and vineyards; a broad coastline with aquamarine waters and ancient ports; and thoughtful agriculture that interweaves with daily life.
At the Adventure Travel World Summit 2018 Tuscany this October, delegates will experience this dolce vita of Tuscany in a fresh new way through immersive adventure activities. Through multi-day Pre-Summit Adventures and the Day of Adventure, we’ll dive into an authentic culture and experience activities like rafting, climbing, diving, hiking, sailing, canyoning and many more.
In Renaissance times, the Latin term ad fontes encouraged people to ‘return to the sources‘. At the core of this encouragement was the belief that the best results based on an understanding of pure and fundamental truths. In 2018, the adventure travel community of business leaders convenes in Tuscany, the source of great wisdom and beauty, and a place where the truth of what it means to live and work in the adventure community today can be explored and interpreted for today’s complicated world.
This year’s Summit marks a return to the source — a chance to frame the future from this foundation: to reconnect to the essence of adventure in the natural world, to engage with heart, to rejuvenate body and mind, with a community of peers to support and lead each other forward.
