8 Day Yoga and Snow Shoe Hiking Holiday in Grossglockner, East Tyrol

MoaAlm Mountain Retreat, Burg 16, 9981, Als Am Grossglockner, East Tyrol, Austria

Winter Hiking and Yoga Holiday, high in the Austrian Alps

In January 2018, MoaAlm Mountain Retreat was featured by The Guardian newspaper as one of the best retreats in the world for mind, body, and spirit breaks. MoaAlm Mountain Retreat provides an extraordinary winter holiday. We love exploring the snowy mountains by foot! Depending on weather and snow conditions, we will take you out on guided snowshoe tours or winter hikes. Because the number of guests is limited, we can adjust duration and level of difficulty to the group's preferences. Of course, we also offer daily yoga sessions in our in-house yoga studio, with stunning mountain views, as the perfect start to the day. Food is very important to MoaAlm Mountain Retreat and we offer plant based meals with lots of love and a stylish remote space to make your home for the week!

The MoaAlm Mountain Retreat has comfortable single, double, twin, or triple rooms. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious, with sizes that can go 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. They also have triple rooms available. After an active day in the outdoors, you can enjoy the astonishing view from the sunny terrace or relax in the living room to enjoy a drink at the bar, curl up on the sofa with a magazine or book, or enjoy a meal at the shared dining table. The resort offers an in-house yoga studio, which has a panoramic mountain view and is the perfect place for an active start to the day. There, you will have the opportunity to practice energising yoga in the mornings or a relaxing session of restorative yoga in the afternoon. We also offer inversion classes in most afternoon. In the morning the sunrise fills our yoga room with energy and the late afternoon turns the mountains pink.

Program

There is no set daily schedule. MoaAlm Mountain Retreat understands that every guest and every day is different. The benefit of small groups is that they can adapt, discuss, and personalize each day.

A typical day may start by enjoying a morning Vinyasa yoga session in the in-house yoga studio with a view on the sunrise over the mountains followed by eating breakfast together at the shared dining table. Snow shoeing up to the Lesach Riegel Hut and having a little picnic with a view at the Grossglockner (Austria's highest mountain) follows.

After this, you may warm up at MoaAlm with a cup of tea on the sofa in the living room, maybe read one of their books or magazines, or play a board game. Share stories and wine while you are at it, accompanied by a delicious three course dinner and discussion to plan the next day's adventures.

Included excursions

Depending on snow conditions, guided snow shoe hikes and cross-country skiing excursions are included in this retreat.

  • There is also a daily lift to the local ski resort for anyone who would like to spend the day on the piste.
