Program

Yoga

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat offers a 1-hour morning yoga class in our stunning panoramic studio five days of the week. You are very welcome to join whether you have never done yoga before or you are a regular practitioner - classes are always tailored to individual needs.

The morning classes are generally energizing and get you ready for the day ahead, while the occasional Restorative Yoga session in the afternoon will help you to relax fully after your hike. We have yoga mats and props at MoaAlm, so you only need to bring some comfortable clothes that allow you to move in them.

Hiking

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat will offer guided hikes on five days; the hikes take four to seven hours including comfortable breaks and you will conquer up to 1200 vertical meters. If you have a basic fitness level, doing cardio or endurance sports at least one hour a week, and no serious knee injuries, you will be able to join on these hikes.

You will start the week with easier hikes to warm-up and build from there. All hikes are optional. You are welcome to go on self-guided hikes too and will be provided with maps and routes... or you may also take extra resting days.

A week at MoaAlm might look like:

Day 1

You will arrive mountain home, enjoy a welcome drink and delicious cake, settle into your room and take in the stunning mountain view. You will meet other guests over a delicious three-course dinner that evening. then chat over dinner about your weekly activity preferences.

Day 2

During the second day, you will enjoy a pre-breakfast yoga session, looking out at the sunrise from behind the mountains. Breakfast will be followed by a hike in the Kals valley, learning about the local traditions and the history of Kals. You could enjoy a picnic with a view of Austria's highest mountain, Grossglockner, and plenty of time to relax back at the house and enjoy the wood-fired hot tub.

Day 3

You will enjoy a delicious breakfast followed by a hike from MoaAlm into the famous Dorfertal Valley. You may take a coffee break at a traditional farmhouse and continue the route towards a stunning mountain lake. Hike back to MoaAlm for a late afternoon restorative yoga session and dinner at the house.

Day 4

The morning yoga session outside. Maybe you will take the gondola up to do some high alpine hiking towards the top of Blauspitz mountain. You may have lunch at a mountain hut overlooking the entire valley and just after you will head back to MoaAlm to enjoy the late afternoon sun on the terrace while the chef prepares a delicious BBQ.

Day 5
