At the mountain retreat, you don't need to get worried about anything.

review 7 Aug 2016

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,

review 16 Jul 2016

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
