Gender stereotypes can still be perceived in outdoor activities, as there are still cultural determinants of sexist nature that influence the practice of physical activities in the countryside. This study aims to analyse the profile of practitioners of outdoor activities, their characteristics and habits of practice, identifying possible gender differences. The methodology used consisted of carrying out a survey through the distribution of the questionnaire "Analysis of the profile of users-visitors of the outdoor environment" to a random sample of practitioners of activities in the outdoor environment in the Community of Madrid, specifically in Sierra de Guadarrama (n=156; 38.5% women, and 61.5% men). The results showed that the proportion of men who reported practicing more committed modalities was higher than that of women. However, there were no significant differences in the reason for practice. Once the results have been analysed, it can be concluded that the proportion of women in the field of outdoor activities is still lower and that it is possible to establish that there are several significant differences between male and female groups with regard to profile and habits of practitioners of this type of activities.
