Responsible tourism: Austria yoga & walking holiday

Environment

MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer, a fragile environment which it is our goal to protect.

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike - guests will be actively involved in carrying out waste. Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring and our heating system is a brand new 'eco' pellet burning system. The P4 pellet system has won many international quality awards in EU and USA, the most prestigious of all are the Blue Angel and the Austrian Ecolabel. Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Natural materials have been used in the construction and renovation of MoaAlm where possible and we have been pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. The local tradesmen we employ are highly skilled, particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally-produced felt.

Community

Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at locally-run recommended restaurants.

The area also has an excellent ski school and advanced mountain guiding network of instructors that guests may choose to take advantage of. All fresh food and drink will be sourced locally where possible.

We will be employing a team of 4 local full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will also be available through our staff incentive scheme to participate in training courses annually. This scheme is in place to encourage staff to make this a rewarding full time lifestyle choice that can be sustainable rather than just a seasonal short term option.

Local tradesmen have been involved in the renovation of MoaAlm and we have pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. These tradesmen are highly skilled particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally produced felt.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole experience was memorable. Barbara is an amazing yoga teacher and started each day in a perfect way. The hiking was exceptional, from the
local knowledge to the gorgeous views. Each hike was discussed before hand and terrain, challenge and scenery was incorporated for the groups likes and
needs. Every meal was a taste sensation, again with all needs and tastes catered for using local and fresh produce. The atmosphere created by the staff is
one of comfort, caring and openness which made for a very relaxing and comfortable break. Climbing Grossglockner was an amazing highlight and
toasting marshmellows and chatting by firelight was also a memorable experience.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared for lots of fresh air and have a reasonable amount of fitness, so you can enjoy all aspects of the holiday.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Places to eat on our hikes were at local restaurants, so hopefully local businesses benefited from our visit and also the building of the holiday providers business.
As the holiday is actively walking and yoga, hopefully we didn't impact on the environment in a bad way.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The whole holiday was an amazing experience. The only improvement would be to include a hot-tub to relieve achy limbs at the end of long, sumptuous walks
:-) . Thank you to Barbara, Hubert, Nelson, Beatrix, Yvonne and team for putting in so much effort to make a truly memorable holiday,

vegetarian was delicious.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Everything was perfect and far better than I could have imagined. The people
of Moa Alm, the accommodation, the food and the stunning walks/ scenery

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


This is a great active / relax holiday with great people. Moa Alm is very
unique. The yoga, walks, food and company was great. I love the
communal eating part of the holiday where guests and staff sit together at
the beginning and end of the day over great food. This is more like being on
holiday with friends

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes. Moa Alm sources all their food from around their area, we stopped at
local huts for food and drinks on our walks. They also have a cafe that is used
by both local and travellers and they put on social events that again bring
together the local and visiting communities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Excellent -beyond expectations and I have already recommended to friends
