Adventure Awards Days, the international festival of adventure and exploration, is confirmed at Arco and at Garda Trentino for its sixth edition, to be held on from the 21st to the 23rd of April.
Nature as a place of escape and research, the outdoors as a passion, free time as a desire to escape from the ordinary. This is the festival’s philosophy which has established itself over the years as a reference for all those who share a certain lifestyle.
It’s not the extreme sports, it’s not the performance or a race.

The Adventure Awards Days are an opportunity to reach out and immerse yourself in a real world, drinking a beer with the great explorers, running in the woods along with those who have crossed the hottest deserts and the coldest lands, riding with someone who has traveled on a saddle all around the world, listening to stories of a contemporary adventurer, learning to take pictures by who has gathered in their eyes dream worlds, listening, learning, sharing a passion.

Arco and the most spectacular corners of Garda Trentino will be the stage of a program full of events.
The event will begin on Friday 21st of April with the international selection of the best adventure movies from all around the world, which will also be on Saturday 22nd. On stage every evening there will also be several guests.

In the following days there will be training camps on trail running with great champions like Stefano Gregoretti, Michele Evangelisti, Filippo Canetta, Enrico Ghidoni and Davide Grazielli, outdoor cooking courses with the vegan chef Cristiano Bonolo, nature photography workshop with Andrea Zampatti, meetings with great explorers and athletes, storytelling workshops – this year with Emilio Previtali – the concert at sunset of Daughter & Sons with guided hiking, yoga for runners and bikers, bike rides from sunrise to sunset through Garda Trentino with the Montanus, parties, evenings of meetings and much more.

The program also includes the second edition of the Arco Rock Star: international contest of climbing photography, with major cash prizes: teams of photographers and athletes, professional and amateur, will compete on the rocks of the Garda Trentino to find the perfect photograph.

In the last evening, the Adventure Awards Night, the Best Movie 2017 and the winners of Arco Rock Star will be awarded. During the evening will be on stage the climbing philosopher Manolo, the explorer and ultrarunner Michele Evangelisti and the winners of the Golden Beards 2017 for the Best Adventurer and Best Storyteller: Francesco Sauro, a speleologist who holds courses to astronauts for the European Space Agency, and for the Time he is one of 10 Next Generation Leaders.
