The Tourism and Culture Ministry of Salta, Argentina, has generously invited all delegates attending the Adventure Travel World Summit to participate in a Day of Adventure activity on Monday, 16 October 2017, the day before the Summit officially begins. Set against the otherworldly, rocky landscape or verdant Yungas jungle (and, in some cases, both!), the Summit’s Day of Adventure excursions range from adrenaline-pumping mountain biking to admiring the craftsmanship of local artisans hard at work in Cafayate. Salta’s adventure tour operators have handcrafted more than two dozen itineraries to highlight the very best the region has to offer.

Whether hiking, cycling, overlanding, birding, wine tasting, rafting, or embarking on some other type of adventure in the area, the Day of Adventure experiences are designed to give delegates just a small taste of the many adventure travel experiences available in and around Salta while also getting to know other industry professionals who will be attending the Summit.

Each Day of Adventure is free of charge for all registered Summit delegates. They will fill up quickly — several are already full — so delegates should register for a preferred activity as soon as possible. All adventures will depart and return from Salta on 16 October.

The Day of Adventure is a mainstay of each Adventure Travel World Summit event, revealing the host destination’s adventure opportunities to the 800 attending trade delegates.

Tickets are still available for the Summit, which is being held 17-19 October in Salta.
