Climbing, surfing, mountain biking, yoga. When it comes to sport, it’s rare that women choose just one. Take road cycling, for example. My boyfriend will obsess over the sport. He’ll buy all the gear, read every magazine, scour all the websites and watch every online video. Cycling will dominate his life for six-months – and then he’ll get bored and move onto something else. I like cycling, but I also enjoy making time for other sports in my life. I will still go climbing, kayaking, surfing and make my Saturday morning yoga class.
“Women are multi-taskers,” says Monika Fiedler, founder of the Women’s Summer Festival in Ischgl, Austria. “Often they want to try out lots of different sports as well as eating good food and relaxing afterwards.” That’s what the brand new Women’s Summer Festival is all about. It’s a weekend of outdoor adventure and fitness in the mountains with a group of sporty, like-minded women.
