Chile is known for its diverse culture, miles of beaches, spectacular volcanoes and engaging people. Come explore a bit of Chile before the Summit on one of these incredible 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.
All adventure package prices listed include food, accommodation, transport, guide/escort and activities. Adventures begin three to seven days before the Summit and end on Sunday, October 4. All Summit delegates can enjoy a Pre-Summit Adventure, and buyers and media can apply to be hosted by Chile. Deadline for registration is September 4.
This year, Chile is offering more Pre-Summit Adventures than any other Summit! While choices are abundant, please note that every month some adventures will close in order to ensure that each option has a minimum number of participants. This means delegates need to book quickly to ensure their adventure will take place. If minimum numbers are not met, we will move you to another adventure in that region with the same duration. Book quickly!
Register – only registered ATWS delegates may participate in Pre-Summit Adventure.

Buyers, Specialty Travel Agents/Advisors & Accredited Media – As with previous Summits, Chile is pleased to invite 2015 ATWS delegates who are buyers (outbound tour operators), specialty adventure travel agents/advisors and accredited media (subject to ATTA & Chile’s review) to apply to enjoy one of these amazing Pre-Summit Adventures with all costs covered, including accommodation, transportation and meals. Please note that hosted Buyers will be expected to take part in the Marketplace and as well as scheduled meetings.
There are only a limited amount of hosted spots, however all delegates have the opportunity to pay the tour operator directly to participate in a PSA.

Please contact Gonzalo Larrain Tocornal, Regional Manager Local ATWS Committee and the tour operator directly for details and payment options. All delegates need to apply.
Once you have applied, ATTA & Chile will book your PSA. If you are not hosted or would like to bring a guest, you would need to connect with the tour operator directly with your selected adventure and pay. Please note, that each adventure has a minimum and maximum amount of adventurers.
