Situated at 1800m, MoaAlm offers a superb base from which to explore the breathtaking mountains of East Tirol Austria. Part of the small `WearActive’ company, we are the second property owners Xania and Craig have converted into a stylish, relaxing, holiday location.
With a focus on being 'relaxingly active’, MoaAlm provides a space for us to share our passion for the mountains alongside balanced, healthy living with you. Therefore at MoaAlm we offer a diverse range of mountain activities, daily yoga classes and time to relax in our wood fired hot tub, or on our south facing terrace.
Great, healthy, home cooked food is a vital part of the `Wear Active concept and guests can expect to enjoy hearty three course dinners with ingredients that are organic, locally sourced, often plant based and seasonal. Group sizes are limited to twelve so a holiday at MoaAlm is always highly personalised. You can expect to arrive at MoaAlm as a guest, but leave as a friend.
We work with the seasons
Life at 1800m changes drastically throughout the year, so we adapt our holidays to enable you make the most out of our stunning location:
During the snowy season we offer a range of guided mountain activities from snow shoe hiking on magical forest trails and snowy ridges, to cross country skiing following some of the many tracks that crisscross our valley.
It is also possible to ski from MoaAlm to the GG ski resort which offers 37 km of downhill skiing/riding. If you would like to learn how to downhill ski, we can arrange this with our local partners. Guests may also want to take advantage of one of our theme weeks and learn how to Splitboard/ski tour or join our Adult Learn to Ski week.
With the pastures a vibrant green, our resident hiking guide takes guests up into the hills, making the most of our position on the edge of the Hohe Tauren National Park. We also offer mountain bike tours to high peaks or small romantic mountain huts, day trips to the beautiful city of Lienz or peaceful picnics beside the aquamarine glacial rivers.
If you would like an adrenaline rush we can also arrange additional activities with our local partners, such as rafting, canyoning, paragliding and rock climbing.
Every holiday with us includes five yoga classes in our in-house yoga studio, with a panoramic view of the mountains. Whenever the weather allows, we take our yoga practice outside to take advantage of the fresh mountain air.
