Are you part of the adventure revolution? The theme for the Adventure Travel World Summit 2015 is “Viva la revolucion de la aventura!” It’s a bold statement for a bold sector. Throughout the Summit, passionate travel professionals including influential writers and entrepreneurs will speak about their drive to take chances, embrace the unknown, create something new and make hard decisions based on values. We’ll talk about the role ATTA members and the adventure community at large have in leading the way toward sustainable tourism development and meaningful customer experiences. Keynote speakers will share examples of acts of courage, challenges to the status quo, defense of values -- and ask how delegates will be part of the revolution.

Pablo Neruda said, “There is a certain pleasure in craziness that only the crazy know.” Inspired by the famous Chilean poet, we’ll indulge in the excitement of forging new paths through largely uncharted business territory.

[Adventure in Chile]

Chile was ranked #1 in adventure destination potential in the 2011 Adventure Travel Development Index report. Now, it’s ready to show the world what it’s got by hosting the Adventure Travel World Summit in 2015. With ten UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and nearly twenty percent of its total landmass protected, it’s clear that Chile is committed to sustainability and sees adventure travel as a path toward a healthy tourism industry for the future. We welcome you to come trek, bike, raft, ski, climb, or eat or photograph your way through well-known regions like Easter Island, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego.
