Adventure Awards Days

Adventure Awards Days is the international festival of adventure and exploration. Everything is about adventure: for who loves the outdoors and for those who want to make their life a unique adventure, for who thinks that beauty will save the world and for those who get excited in front of a dream. Far from the extreme sports and performance, passion is the philosophy behind this event, which leads us to live our free time intensely, or simply the pleasure of doing something out of the ordinary.
