Abstract: 

The purpose of the study was to investigate the motives for participation and attachment in five different outdoor mountain activities and defining the profile of the participants. The sample consisted of 500 individuals (100 per activity, Snowboard, Climbing, Mountaineering, Mountain Bike, and Skiing). The questionnaire of Funk & James (2006) was used to measure attachment, while the REP questionnaire was used to measure the participation incentives (Manfredo et al., 2007). The results showed that participants in outdoor mountain activities consider that their favor activity plays an important role in their lives (high attachment levels) and are motivated to participate mainly by well-being, exercise and enjoyment for nature. But there are differences among the five different mountain activities in terms of motivation for participation and attachment to activity.
