    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 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.
