My week in Moa Alm was exactly as good as I hoped it would be. Thank you everyone for the great experience! I already miss the mountains, the house, the food, the hikes...everything!
from Germany, July 2021
- MoaAlm is a modern and cozy guesthouse with everything you need (> hot tub!!).
- Ryan, Lottie and the rest off the staff are really nice, they did everything to make us feel comfortable and they still found their time to sit with us at the table and chat.
- The surroundings are just wonderful. The hikes were not easy, but the amazing views and the delicious food at the mountain huts were worth it ;)
- On our "day off" (no hiking), a lot of other activities were possible and organized by the staff.

"Amazing hiking vacation!"
Very welcoming staff, absolutely amazing views, super clean rooms (it is modest, but has everything you need), truly professional and very lovely hiking guide Petra (special thank to her!). I think, if I rate from the top to the flop I would say hiking tours guided by Petra were the best, then comes welcoming culture of the hosts, then location and very important food..and the flop is yoga (sorry guys, but there should be something done about it - see the other box with recommendations).

"The most magical retreat!"
Every little detail was catered for by the lovely hosts who all sincerely seemed to love being our hosts and guides to this amazing place on earth. I have never experienced such beautiful nature scenery - I will cherish this experience for ever. The vegan food was AMAZING! Thank you Lottie, Ryan, Becca and Anne for creating such a wonderful experience full of warmth and joy - Best, Sidsel from Denmark

"Everything I wished for and more! "
I loved everything about the holiday - from the location in some of the most beautiful Alpine scenery, to the peaceful yoga sessions performed in a studio overlooking snow-capped mountains, to the delicious vegan food, to the stunning night skies and to the amazing company - the staff did everything to really make me feel at home and I would not hesitate to return and hope to again very, very soon! I loved the freedom I had, being able to go and explore the surrounding area alone, being able to summit beautiful peaks and swim in pristine lakes but also having the option to go on the guided hikes, where I met some really great people, tried some local delicacies and learnt so much from Petra, whose knowledge of the surrounding area and wildlife is very impressive! Thank you MoaAlm for an amazing week!

"A great week of hiking and relaxing yoga in the Alps"
The staff at MoaAlm were all fantastic. Had a lovely time all together and out on the hikes. Amazing scenery with an extremely caring and thoughtful staff.

"Wonderful hiking vacation "
The whole experience exceeded my expectation. I loved everything about Moaalm. The cottage is so magical, with the interiors and the backyard views. The team Ryan, Lottie, Lagita, Becca and Sukka are very friendly and fun and does everything to make us feel at home. The hiking guide Petra is a wonderful guide inside and out, and took good care of us throughout the hikes and selected different trails everyday. The yoga classes are wonderful and complement the hiking vacation. The daily cakes, coffee breakfasts and dinners are so good!! I can seriously go on and on about all the details i liked about this vacation. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who want to go on a hiking vacation.
from Thailand, July 2019
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!
from Germany, September 2018
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 :)

"Relaxingly active week at MoaAlm, Austria!"
What an astonishing week I had at beautiful MoaAlm with its breathtaking views! The Wear Active team is so welcoming, enthusiastic, warm, funny, sporty and super well organized. They really make you feel at home and give you the impression that everything is possible!
All is of the highest quality: the yoga, the amazing hikes (with or without nature guide Petra - thank you again, Petra!), the location and the fantastic food (imagine arriving back at the Alm after an active day, and sitting down to enjoy the freshly baked cake of the day... what a luxury!).
Thank you all again, Wear Active Team, for all your energy and effort to give us the most amazing week!

"If you like snow, this is the place to be!"
I loved the remoteness of the place and the shuttle service that was provided - no matter where we needed to go.
from Switzerland, January 2020
It was a memorable vacation. The staff was really nice, very helpful and attentive to details. I discovered plant-based meals with fantastic chefs, who were attentive to my intolerances so that I enjoyed all the menus! The activities were well organized allowing us to discover and enjoy the wonderful mountains, alternating with moments of pure relaxation that made this week fantastic. Despite being a novice in yoga practice, I loved having it every morning! I would go back immediately, I warmly thank all the people who helped make this holiday unforgettable.

"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

De staff was zeer betrokken en ze waren als vrienden in het gezelschap. We aten samen aan een grote tafel, ze kenden ieders voorkeur aan de bar en dachten met ons mee voor activiteiten.
from Germany, February 2020
Alles. Vor allem die sehr sehr netten Coaches, Trainer und Inhaber. Jeder Service wurde möglich gemacht. Und das bei sehr abgelegener Lage und 1800 Höhenmetern. Top!
