The Adventure Outdoor Fest is bac. This event, dedicated to the enthusiast of outdoor, of mountain, adventure, and inner wellbeing.

The festival, now in its 7th year, confirms all the events that made it an unmissable event for the outdoor sports lovers: the trekking in the green surroundings, the Mountain Biking, the Bushcratfting in the wood, and many climbing experiences, from the entry-level to the more adventurous challenges.

There are many novelties, compared to the previous editions.  One is the location, that, in collaboration with the Dolomites Maadness project, will be in Rocca Pietore, Alleghe, Cencenighe, Colle Santa Lucia, Livinallongo del Col di Lana, San Tomaso Agordino and Taibon Agordino.

The brand new "headquarter of the village"  will be, from Friday 26 to Sunday 28  Piani
di Pezzé (Alleghe)
, a natural amphitheater at 1470 meters above the sea level, overlooking the North-West wall of the Mountain Civetta, whereas the  official opening will be on Thursday 25, at 18:00  in Rocca Pietore (BL), with a drink in the square, followed by  the Al & Jay concert: funky, reggae and blues atmospheres accompanying the AcroYoga and Hula Hoop exhibitions.

Starting at 21:00, at the near El Teaz hall, will be inaugurated also the prestigious Adventure Movie Awards, the spearhead of the Festival, which will offer some of the best productions of the year dedicated to nature, adventure and exploring, with a special focus on the environment.

A jury of experts, composed of journalists, photographer, filmmakers, explorers, will judge the 18 competition films and will award the Grivel Golden Axe Award, the Dolomites Green Award, and the Best Photography Award. The screenings will take place every night during the Festival, and it will be possible to meet some of the protagonists and directors, as the American Patrick J. Lynch, the Chilean anthropologist and kayaker Jens Benöhr and the Chileans activist Raimundo Gomez Vergara.

Another important novelty of the Adventure Outdoor Fest 2019 will be the first edition of the Dolomiti Green Trail,  a mountain running race which will take place on Sunday 27 July departing from Piani di Pezzè and arrival to the same place.

The competition will be on two spectacular trail ring courses, one 27 km in length and 1900 D+ and the other 14km length and 900 D+, which may be done also walking in the company of the Grivel athlete Moreno Pesce.

Upon the arrival, we will have the concert of the Tirataie to celebrate all the athletes, that, signing up themselves to the race, will have contributed to the reestablishment of wood, together with WowNature. Furthermore, the finisher medals will be made from the wood of the branches fallen during the terrible storm of October 2018.

The themes of environment, nature, and ecology will be focused during all the Festival, also to keep alive the interest in this precious territory, so damaged by the recent exceptional climatic events.  That's why many meeting to be aware of our forests and understanding how safeguarding our ecosystem are scheduled: starting from the event involving Banca Etica, with the president Mrs. Anna Fasano and the meteorologist Luca Lambroso, the meetings with the guys of Adotta un Sentiero and the storytelling of the onlus Giant Trees Foundation.

There will be also many appointments dedicated to yoga practices, starting from the Yoga & Balance Meeting #rechargeinnature: three days, from 26th to 28th July, to reconnect with nature and to restore, thanks to it, balance and harmony in body and soul.  

There will be a wide choice of events dedicated to the inner balance, which will include yoga, acroyoga, meditation, slackline, weightlessness, forest bathingmandala laboratories, mindfulness, Hula Hoop and aerial silk.
