In Renaissance times, the Latin term ad fontes encouraged people to ‘return to the sources’. At the core of this encouragement was the belief that the best results based on an understanding of pure and fundamental truths. In 2018, the adventure travel community of business leaders convenes in Tuscany, the source of great wisdom and beauty, and a place where the truth of what it means to live and work in the adventure community today can be explored and interpreted for today’s complicated world.

This year’s Summit marks a return to the source — a chance to frame the future from this foundation: to reconnect to the essence of adventure in the natural world, to engage with heart, to rejuvenate body and mind, with a community of peers to support and lead each other forward.
