Why Chile?

“We are very proud to host the Adventure Travel World Summit in Chile. Chile has grown as a destination for adventure tourism, always developing in a responsible and sustainable manner. Chile has immense potential in the adventure sector, thanks to its people, its beautiful landscapes, national parks and the high quality of its adventure operators.”

-- Javiera Montes, Chile’s Under Secretary of Tourism

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.


Pre-Summit Adventures

Chile is showcasing the best of its adventures to delegates, offering three- to seven-day itineraries that span the length of the country. These adventures give delegates an opportunity to experience the iconic landscapes and exciting activities available in Chile.

Day of Adventure

Chile is extending a warm welcome to all 2015 ATWS delegates to explore the incredible areas of Puerto Varas surrounded by lakes, volcanoes, rainforest and welcoming people on the Day of Adventure. Each Day of Adventure is free of charge for all registered Summit delegates and includes transportation, adventure activity, equipment (if needed) and lunch.
