MoaAlm Mountain Retreat has comfortable single, double, twin, or triple rooms with en-suite bathroom. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious, sizes vary up to 24 square meters.

All rooms have an en-suite private bathroom and stunning views. Some have balconies but not all. All rooms can be made up of one double or two single beds. Three of the rooms can also be made up into triple rooms and are ideal for friends or families. After an active day in the outdoors, you can enjoy the stunning view from the sunny terrace or relax in the living room, sip a drink at the bar, or curl up on the sofa with a magazine or book.

On six evenings, you will enjoy a meal at the shared dining table with the MoaAlm team and your fellow guests.

Yoga studio

The in-house yoga studio has a panoramic mountain view and is the perfect place for an active start to the day with Hatha Vinyasa yoga or a relaxing session of restorative yoga in the afternoon. In the morning the sunrise fills the room with energy and the late afternoon turns the mountains pink.

Communal areas

MoaAlm is a stylishly designed space, with a large lounge and Scandinavian inspired dining area. It has a large sun terrace and gardens with a slack line and wood-fired hot tub.



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.


MoaAlm Mountain Retreat will offer accompanied hikes on five days; the hikes take four to seven hours including comfortable breaks and you will may hike up to 1200 vertical meters. You will need a good level of basic fitness, for example doing cardio or endurance sports at least three times per a week, and no serious knee injuries. We are in the Alps so uphill hiking will happen!

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 (price not included) 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.
