Description of Austria yoga & walking holiday

This yoga and hiking holiday is hosted at MoaAlm, a unique, beautifully designed mountain house, situated high in the Austrian Alps.

With the focus on being ‘RelaxinglyActive’ the holidays we offer are a healthy balance of fresh air, mountain activities and great freshly cooked plant based food. A holiday at MoaAlm puts you right at the heart of our warm family atmosphere, with dedicated, enthusiastic staff, and a cosy but stylish living space.

HIKING:
Situated at 1800m, MoaAlm offers a superb base from which to explore the breathtaking mountains of East Tirol. We create a personalised holiday, giving you the opportunity to share our passion for the mountains, with daily guided hikes with a local guide.

FOOD:
We are passionate about healthy living and reducing our impact on the environment. Therefore included in your holiday are six three course evening meals which are entirely plant based. Our in house chef creates seasonal menus and our food is organic and as locally sourced as possible. We also offer a delicious, organic breakfast and freshly baked cakes with organic tea and coffee on a daily basis.

YOGA:
Every holiday with us includes five yoga classes in our in-house yoga studio with panoramic mountain views. Whenever the weather allows, we take our yoga practice outside to take advantage of the fresh mountain air. At MoaAlm we believe that yoga is for everyone, no matter what your age or level of fitness and, as such, our classes are prepared with all of our guests’ needs in mind.

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES
If you would like an adrenaline rush, we can also arrange additional activities with our local partners, such as rafting, canyoning, paragliding and rock climbing. We also have the option to include some biking within the holiday.

ABOUT THE AREA
We are situated on the edge of the Hohe Tauren National Park underneath Austria's highest mountain, Groίglockner. This means we have a unique opportunity to spot rare wildlife such as Ibex on an almost daily basis. Our local guide is extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna around MoaAlm and will be able to tell you about the unique Alpine species you will see. Our local village Kals is still a traditional Alpine village, where many of the residents graze animals on the high alpine pastures. Kals is also home to a small ski resort and a few lovely traditional restaurants.

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat was recently featured in The Guardian, in a list of 'mind, body and spirit breaks'.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

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.

We serve plant based, locally sourced organic food, and change our menu with the seasons to ensure we are creating as minimul impact on the environment as possible.

Recycling is also a major part of our waste disposal. We only send one bin bag of waste to landfill each season, and are aiming to reduce our plastic usage this year.

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

The Impacts of this Trip

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

We offer a weekly yoga class and coffee morning for local residents.

We support local farmers in taking care of the forestry and the forest tracks around MoaAlm.

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 employ an international team of 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.
