MoaAlm is a unique, beautifully designed mountain house, situated high in the Austrian Alps. Our base at MoaAlm Mountain Retreat is at 1800m, immersed within the mountains of East Tirol and in idyllic isolation.
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 Mountain Retreat puts you right at the heart of our warm family atmosphere, with dedicated, enthusiastic staff, and a cosy but stylish living space.
MoaAlm is a stylishly renovated guest house with room for a maximum of 12 – 15 guests. We have 6 guest rooms, all are thoughtfully decorated and spacious. South facing rooms have balconies and views of the surrounding mountains. To relax after a day of exploring the mountains you can soak in our wood burning hot tub, before having dinner at our shared communal dining table.
About the area
We are situated on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park underneath Austria’s highest mountain, Großglockner. 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.
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 vegan cakes with organic tea and coffee on a daily basis.
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.
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.
