"Spectacular views!"

The location is amazing with impressive mountain views and excellent access to a variety of scenic hikes. The hiking guide, Petra, is friendly, positive and very knowledgeable. The plant based meals were delicious and freshly prepared with local herbs and plants where possible.

"An idyllic week in the Alps"

I booked on to this retreat having just finished an extended period of academic study – much in need of a change of scenery and pace – and found an experience that far exceeded my expectations. Right from the beginning of the trip the staff ensured that we felt at home in the picturesque setting of MoaAlm, welcoming us with the first of many evenings of delicious food and good company.

Throughout the week Becca’s morning yoga classes, complete with breath-taking panoramic views of the Alps, provided an invigorating stretch before a day of hiking. During the guided hikes Petra entertained us with her wealth of local knowledge, guiding us to areas where we were able to spot Golden Eagles and Ibex, as well as taking on board the fitness levels of our group to guide us along some of the more challenging, but incredibly rewarding trails.

Even on the ‘day off’ the hosts Lottie and Ryan ensured that we each had the Austrian experience that we had hoped for. While others opted for paragliding I was given a lift to a local lake, enjoying a swim and the opportunity to sit in the sun and read a bit of my book before heading in to the picturesque town of Lienz for lunch.

The whole trip was incredibly well planned and I am very grateful to all of the staff for making the week such a special one.

"A wonderful retreat"

This was a perfect retreat. The location is gorgeous with amazing views both at MoaAlm and on all the hikes. The accommodations were comfortable with just the right balance between having your own private space and places to hang out with other guests and staff. The food was amazing - I wish I could have them cook for me every night. And the staff were so kind and thoughtful throughout the entire trip. I will definitely be back!

"Amazing trip"

Everything was amazing!

The location of MoaAlm is great, I'll always remember the view. The people, the food, the yoga sessions and hikes were all great. It really felt like a home away from home. We were lucky and had amazing weather the whole time, which made the experience even better. I'll definitely go back again, maybe next time during winter :)

The remote location and the peacefulness. The lodge itself was decorated and managed in a way that promoted well being.

The hiking was sensational.

"Awesome hiking and yoga week"

The location of MoaAlm is stunning, with unbelievable views of the Tyrol Alps, fresh mountain air and icy cold water that springs from the tap. The entire week was memorable for the fantastic hikes, the relaxing yoga, the delicious food and the great company of new friends. Incredible adventure and retreat in just one week!

"Excellent hiking experience"

Hiking - Martin made our holidays! He took good care of the group, that we are properly equipped, planned the hiking tours to be the best for each day and took us to places where we could have never gone without him. The best hiking experience so far, worth going there just for the hiking.

Accommodation - very clean spacious room with fantastic view over the Alps.

Food - especially the secong part of the week. Kersty and Cregg made delicious dinners, Kerstys hospitality stood out. The breakfast is excellent, all fresh and tasty.

"Amazing experience"

The whole package was amazingly great: the staff is considerate and gentle; the food very healthy and ever so nice; the guide for the hikings is careful; the nature with its mountains só beautiful. The house is beautiful, clean and has all one would need or want and a bit more with the hot tub.

"Geweldige ervaring"

Alles wat beter dan ik had verwacht. We hadden een kleine groep van 6 dames. Een fijne sfeer en het personeel was echt heel aardig en gezellig.

De wandelingen waren echt prachtig. Martin is een fijne gids die veel verteld over de omgeving en natuur. Hij bouwt de wandelingen goed op en we hebben echt zo’n mooie omgeving gezien en wandelingen gedaan.

De yogalessen waren erg fijn en Rosie paste zich goed aan aan de groep. Hele complete lessen.

Het eten wat echt super lekker en er werd echt goed voor ons gezorgd. Heerlijke taart in de middag na de wandeling en heerlijk 3-gangen diner.

Al met al een geweldige ervaring met lieve en leuke mensen.

"Great for meeting interesting people during a mountain holid"

The amazing food, the homely vibe of the place and the serene surroundings, all the interesting people, the lovely music being played in the lounge, the board games, the opportunity to see and experience the Alpine lifestyle, the relaxing and friendly atmosphere, the hot tub....

It’s a truly unique and memorable holiday experience. The snowy alps is super stunning. I’ll definitely come back during the summer season if possible

"Peace, beauty, fun and food."

Every aspect of this holiday was fabulous. The owners and all the staff made us feel very welcome in their home, sharing mealtimes, joining us in the hot tub and occasionally meeting up for a bit of skiing. Martin, the activity leader, guided us on snow shoe and cross country skiing outings with endless patience and his knowledge of wild life and local customs added further interest. Rosie’s morning yoga sessions were wonderful-her sessions provided just the right balance of challenge and relaxation and she was a warm and lovely person. There was a great deal of flexibility around plans for each day- all preferences and abilities were accommodated. The meals were delicious and plentiful and the daily freshly made cakes were the scrumptious- very welcome after a hard day of exercise. Decorated in a homely Scandi style, the rooms were large and comfortable and mine had a beautiful view from the balcony. Rodelling down to the minibus added an extra element of fun to the mornings.

"The Ultimate Winter Getaway! "

I am so pleased that I eschewed conventional yoga breaks in hot climes, in favour of MoaAlm in the stunningly beautiful Austrian Alps. The week I spent here in December was the ultimate relaxing getaway from the daily grind of London life – bringing with it the opportunity to try new winter sports, improve fitness, sample delicious vegetarian and vegan food and make new friends. We were looked after superbly by MoaAlm’s large team and the family vibe was wonderful. I have not laughed so much in ages. After a lovely morning yoga session, we largely chose to do activities as a group – including hiking, snow-shoeing and cross country skiing with Martin. However, we were equally free to do our own thing, supported by the team as desired. I hadn’t downhill skied for 5 years and it was fantastic to spend some time with Polly, Craig and Xania on the slopes over a 2 day period. After returning to scrumptious tea and cake each day, we could relax in our rooms before dinner – or equally flop downstairs with a book or dash outside for the most surreal hot tub experience! All in all, a wonderful, reviving break and I cannot recommend MoaAlm highly enough.

Loved the week. Perfect balance between activity and relaxation. No pressure from the staff who try their best to accommodate all sorts of reasonable and unreasonable requests.

"One of the best vacations we´ve had!"

I and my husband have spent our winter vacation in MoaAlm one week before Christmas and we enjoyed it a lot!

We have been profoundly impressed by the surroundings in the Alps, the accommodation, the way the retreat was organized as well as by the staff.

The rooms were quite big and very cozy and downstairs you got access to a large living-dining room with a bar where you can relax, read a book, play society games, socialize or have dinner.

We loved the combination of different daily snow activities (ski, hiking, cross-country ski, snow shoeing, etc.), "hot-tubing" and yoga. This made the holiday very exciting and relaxing at the same time. We felt totally refreshed, energized and full of motivation when we got back home in Germany.

The food was also awesome, made of wholesome ingredients and vegetarian.

It was also great to meet new people joining the retreat and we totally felt like part of the MoaAlm family, thanks to the great people who are organizing it!

p.s. we as well fully appreciate pet-friendly environment and the help we got with our dog!

"A perfect week"

What to say about MoaAlm. Perfect location. Perfect views. Rooms were amazing great size and everything you need. Food was just the best, far far better than ever expected.

The different activities were amazing, not going to lie I was absolutely shattered but still loved it.

Haven't tried so many new things in ages!

The excursions are planned so perfectly.

One of the best things though is the amazing bunch of people you get to share the experience with. The team at MoaAlm really do make you feel part of the family, it can be nerve wracking doing something like this alone but you certainly don't feel that way. As a novice to everything except yoga I felt comfortably encouraged to try everything.

One of the best weeks ever was so sad to leave.

Thank you everyonr at MoaAlm!

Pure & delicious air, fresh & delicious food, openhearted & attentive people.

What else would you wish for? Read the offer's details, it is in there.

Sleep down in the valley is just not the same than up in the mountains: these silent, massive rocks where space opens, as if allowing eternity to touch the present moment.
