Description of Austria multi activity vacation
2021: 28 Sep
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetMoaAlm is situated at 1800m, it is 2km up the mountain from the settlement of Taurer, a fragile environment which it is our goal to protect.
Some days may involve carrying a picnic on a hike - guests will be actively involved in carrying out waste. Our water is supplied directly from a mountain spring and 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.
The food we serve at MoaAlm is majoritively plant-based, organic and locally sourced where possible. we try to cook with the seasons to reduce food miles.
We try to reduce food waste, but where there is waste we compost it and use it on our garden.
We make an effort to fix instead of throw away things that break. All of our waste is recycled where possible, and this year we are especially aiming to reduce our plastic waste.
Natural materials have been used in the construction and renovation of MoaAlm where possible and we have been pleased to find a number of high quality, locally produced materials to use in the refurbishment. The local tradesmen we employ are highly skilled, particularly in mediums of wood, stone and locally-produced felt.
PeopleAs far as possible, all of our food is locally sourced and organic. We are committed to investing in local businesses.
Guests will eat out for lunch on occasion and one evening at locally-run recommended restaurants.
The area also has an excellent ski school and advanced mountain guiding network of instructors that guests may choose to take advantage of.
We regularly take part in litter picking around the local area, and are trying hard to reduce our own plastic waste.
We will be employing a team of 4 local 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.
