We had the opportunity to meet other European groups of girls who promote female mountaineering. From that day we felt a bit stronger!
Here you find these realities. As this page goes beyond the Alps and has an international spirit, we decided to write it in English.
Wherever you go you will find girls ready to lead the climb. Enjoy the community!

A LAND SHAPED BY WOMEN. the film wants to empawer women and bring a feminine narrative to the outdoor practice and gender equality in the front of the debate. As their travel unfolds, playing in the mountains, in the waves or under the spectacular northern lights, they introduce viewers to the iconic Icelandic women they met along the way. Gender equality has a long history and a special status in Iceland. As professional snowboarders who’ve fought hard for gender parity in a male-dominated sport throughout their careers, Anne-Flore Marxer and Aline Bock wanted to dig deeper into Icelandic women’s mindset while combining it with their love for the mountains and the waves.
“We wanted to bask in the positive vibes of the Icelandic women’s movement and inspire to embrace a new mindset to a different kind of adventure!”
A film of Anne-Flore Marxer and Aline Bock.
