About our hike & yoga holiday

MoaAlm is situated in one of the most beautiful places of the Alps. We love to share this stunning region with you and take you on guided hikes. If you enjoy being close to nature and taking long hikes whilst staying at a comfortable, modern 'home from home' and being well taken care of... this holiday is for you!

Hiking

During the adult only weeks our certified hiking guide will offer intermediate guided hikes on five days: the hikes take from four to seven hours, including comfortable breaks, and we 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 us on these hikes. We 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 (we will supply maps and routes) or take extra resting days.


Yoga

For those interested in yoga, our certified yoga teacher offers a morning yoga class on 5 days of the week. Classes generally last 1 hour and 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. Our yoga teacher specialises in Hatha yoga and occasionally teaches a Restorative or Yin yoga session in the afternoon or a guided meditation on request. In our fully equipped in-house yoga studio we have yoga mats and props, so you only need to bring some comfortable clothes that allow you to move in them. Whenever the weather allows we take our yoga practice outside to breathe in the fresh mountain air!

Additional activities

If you like a little bit extra adventure we can organise additional activities such as mountain biking, rafting, canyoning, paragliding or rock climbing (these are not included in the price). Another option is to take a day trip to the picturesque town of Lienz 30km from MoaAlm to browse the market and shops or to taste the local wines. If you like to focus more on the relaxing part of your holiday, you might want to book massages and treatments at the nearby hotel. 

Food

At MoaAlm we love food! There is no better start to the day than a nutritious breakfast. We serve fresh fruits, oats & cereals, bread, eggs and much more. After an active day in the outdoors you can warm up with a cup of tea and enjoy our freshly baked cake - you've deserved it! At dinner our chef always surprises us with a delicious meal made with lots of love and attention. We believe that food tastes best when it grows close-by: our ingredients are local, fresh and organic whenever possible.

Program

We have no set daily schedule. We understand that every guest and every day is different. The benefit of small groups is that we can adapt, discuss, and personalise each day.  However, a typical week might look like this:

  • Day 1: Arrival to your mountain home from homes, 'MoaAlm'. Welcome drink and a chat over dinner about your weekly activity preferences.
  • Day 2: Might look like:  Yoga looking out at the sun rise from behind the mountains before breakfast followed by a hike to the Lesach Riegel Hütte. We could enjoy a picnic with a view of Austria's highest mountain Grossglockner. Time to relax back at the house and enjoy drinks at the terrace before dinner is served and tomorrows plans are proposed.
  • Day 3: May be breakfast followed by a hike from MoaAlm into the famous Dorfer Valley. Taking a coffee break at a traditional farmhouse and continuing our route towards a stunning mountain lake. Hiking back to MoaAlm  for a late afternoon restorative yoga session and dinner at the house.
  • Day 4: It's a sunny day. The weather allows us to have our morning yoga session outside. Maybe we will take the gondola up to do some high alpine hiking towards the top of Blauspitz mountain today. We could have lunch at a mountain hut overlooking the entire valley. We head back to MoaAlm to enjoy the late afternoon sun on the terrace while our chef is preparing the BBQ.
  • Day 5: No guided activity today so you could head to the nearby town of Lienz to browse the shops or go on a self-guided hike. Dinner out this evening at one of the restaurants in the village.
  • Day 6: We could have an early start. After a nutritious breakfast we hike up Figerhorn mountain, enjoying an on-route picnic. We come back to MoaAlm to relax and have late afternoon drinks and snacks followed by a hearty dinner. 
  • Day 7: Friday comes around all too quickly but you make the most of it with a beautiful easy-going hike crossing the Tschadinalm. On our way back enjoying drinks down in Lesach and having a final evening meal at the house with new friends!

Travelling solo or together

Our adult only weeks are suitable for single travellers. We have 2 smaller rooms available each week that we do not charge a single room supplement for. If you would prefer a larger room with a balcony and stunning view, it is possible for you to book one of these, subject to a 20% additional fee.

Groups up to 15 persons are also welcome at MoaAlm. Please contact us if you are interested in renting out the entire house.
