Adventure Travel World Summit in Namibia, 2013

Discover France was honored to take part of the Adventure Travel World Summit in Namibia this week. The Adventure Travel Trade Association is a global membership organization that helps transform travel businesses into advocates for sustainability and justice worldwide.

The conference was a great occasion to connect people of the adventure travel industry in a very congenial and energetic atmosphere. And we learned a lot and are more more than ever committed to providing travel experiences that are responsible and Earth-friendly.

Here are some photos we took to share with you:
