Description of Austria activity holiday, hiking, snowshoeing & yoga

This week long Austria activity holiday is a small group tour, fully guided, during the months of December to April. Ours is a family run business, and you will be staying in our renovated mountain farmhouse and chalet in Kals am Grossglockner in the East Tirol. From here, the views out across the Hohe Tauern National Park, home to Grossglockner, Austria’s highest peak are second to none. The mountain itself is a place of great local legend and of course, beauty rising to an elevation of 3,798m and is surrounded by hundreds of peaks over 3000m.

We propose the itinerary below for this week of winter activities, but we believe in adapting our adventures according to the interests and needs of our small group. And also to the weather conditions, of course. However, our passion is the mountains and we love nothing more than to share this with our guests, taking you on guided snowshoeing trips, cross country skiing, some winter walking and then daily yoga sessions, in our bespoke studio.

We also offer yoga retreats in this space during other times of the year, so that will give you an idea about our peaceful and life enhancing ethos. Our yoga teacher practises Vinyasa Flow yoga and Restorative yoga, and beginners of all ages are more than welcome. To complement this, we always ensure that our guests enjoy fine, home made, locally sourced and healthy food.

We can sleep 12-18 guests and welcome people of all ages. Each room has a view of the mountains and an ensuite bathroom. There are great views from our terrace and shared living space where we also congregate for meals. We have a bar with cold beers and other local specialities.

Please note that although we offer plenty of outdoor winter activities, we also recognise that guests want to rest too. You don’t need to be experienced winter sports people, or adrenaline seekers, but simply have a love of the crisp outdoors. Winter activities do involve ascents and descents, however, so please note that knee injuries may prevent participation in some activities such as cross country skiing. Of course, these activities are optional and if you would rather relax and do your own thing, that is fine with us too.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Austria activity holiday, hiking, snowshoeing & yoga

Environment

MoaAlm, where we stay, is situated at 1800m and is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer. It is only accessible with our own vehicle or by foot/snowshoe or ski. We will provide pick up and drop off on arrival/departure to your vehicle or your airport transfer in Lienz. Daily transport will involve a combination of snowshoe, ski and toboggan - far more suited to our goal of enjoying and preserving the natural beauty of the Hohe Tauern National Park.

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike or ski touring trip - 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.

Given our surroundings, we are very conscious of the need to preserve natural beauty and heat as efficiently, and sustainably, as possible. Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Community

Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at local 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 and will be sourced locally where possible.

We will be employing a team of 4 full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will be 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.
