Responsible tourism: Mindfulness & nature vacation in Austria

Environment

MoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 3km up the mountain from the farming community of Kals. We are on the border of the National Park and we work hard to minimize our impact on the beautiful nature that surrounds us!

Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike - guests will be actively involved in carrying out waste. We separate and recycle most of our waste such as organic waste, paper, glass, plastic, tin, etc.

Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring. We try to minimize the amount of water we use and all our cleaning products are biodegredable.

Our heating system is a brand new 'eco' pellet burning system. The P4 pellet system has won many international quality awards in EU and USA, the most prestigious of all are the Blue Angel and the Austrian Ecolabel.

Even in winter our south facing position can also provide supplementary energy from our solar bank.

Community

Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at local recommended restaurants. In winter we employ people in the local community for snow clearing.

All fresh food and drinks will be sourced locally where possible. We believe that food tastes best when it grew nearby!

We employ a team of 4 full time staff who will receive a generous package of accommodation, food, ski pass and salary. Opportunities will also be available through our staff incentive scheme to participate in training courses annually. This scheme is in place to encourage staff to make this a rewarding full time lifestyle choice that can be sustainable rather than just a seasonal short term option.

Local tradesmen have been involved in the renovation of MoaAlm and we have been pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. These tradesmen are highly skilled particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally produced felt.
