Description of Austria multi activity holiday

In January 2018 MoaAlm Mountain Retreat was featured by The Guardian as one of the best retreats in the world for mind, body and spirit breaks.

This week long Austria multi activity holiday is for adventurers who love the Alps in summer, and is based at MoaAlm in the Austrian Alps. With local experts and mountain guides you can go hiking and mountain biking in Austria’s Hohe Tauern National Park, where you will also be staying in a recently refurbished and beautiful mountain chalet. With rooms for maximum ten guests, staying in singles, doubles or triple bedrooms, all ensuite, we are proud of our cosy, relaxed atmosphere which is why it is also used as a yoga and Ayurveda centre during other times of the year. The panoramic views from our yoga studio and bedrooms are something we are particularly proud of!

Our chalet is at an elevation of 1800m, just 3km from the village of Kals am Grossglockner. We are a family business and are delighted, therefore, to host guests of all ages here, and love nothing more to share adventures in the mountains with families, be it hiking, biking or even white water rafting. Please note that some activities, such as rafting, are limited age wise, and we find that ten years is a a good minimum age for that.

All activities are optional of course, so it is totally up to you what you want to take part in. Some people just want to stick close to base, chill out and enjoy the views and mountain ambience. And we totally get that! We don’t have a rigid itinerary at all, but like to adapt it according what everyone feels like doing, and we can discuss this and personalise it on a daily basis. So, the itinerary below is just a suggested one, proposing a fun mixture of adventure, cultural exploration and of course relaxing.

Activities at MoaAlm

Hiking: Depending on the group interests and experiences we can organise hikes from quick circuits to longer mountain trails, lasting up to four hours. There are three guided hikes included in the holiday price. And of course, there is plenty of self-guided hiking, for which we can provide maps and instructions.
Mountain biking: Even if you are not a regular cyclist, many of our guests enjoy our guided mountain bike tour around the valley, especially as we also use e-bikes, which definitely helps with those Alpine ascents. One day e-bike rental is included in the holiday price.
Rafting: A rafting trip down the Isle river is a highlight for many of our guest, with an experienced rafting guide if you would like to accompany you. One rafting trip is included in the price.
Yoga: We love yoga at MoaAlm, and run dedicated yoga holidays here during other times. However, many of our families, for example, also love yoga, be it the parents or children as well, so we will run five morning sessions during the week for those who would like to join in. Beginners, of course, are very welcome.

Other facilities at MoaAlm

Other facilities that we provide at MoaAlam for a fun stay in the mountains include a table tennis table, slack line and lots of board games. Within 30km of the chalet you can find a swimming pool, water park and other playgrounds. We can also organise other optional mountain adventures such as canyoning, paragliding and climbing.

Food at MoaAlm

We have a strong community and healthy attitude to food here, with everyone eating together be it kids, adults or members of staff. We are one big family here and we like to eat well! All dietary requirements are catered for of course. Just let us know in advance.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Austria multi activity holiday


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.


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.
